A key theme at this year’s FPD International/Green Devices 2010 show was touchpanel applications for mobile devices. These shows are incredible because they are the first place to see new and exciting devices—and to actually hold and demo upcoming ‘hot’ devices.
I am in Makuhari, Japan just outside of Tokyo this week for the FPD International/Green Devices 2010 show, running from Nov 10-12. Applied Materials’ theme at this year’s show is “Display Innovations for a Visual World” and the objective is to demonstrate our technology leadership in thin film transistor liquid crystal displays (TFT-LCD) and emerging displays.
