Applied Materials Enables Display Innovations
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.
The incredible new array of devices and applications on exhibit at this year’s show is generating a lot of excitement and buzz. Organic light emitting diodes (OLED) devices are everywhere as are touchpanels, 3-D TV, public information displays and e-paper. Applied Materials is the leading supplier of manufacturing equipment to the flat panel manufacturing industry and our product line which enables both the demand for traditional products such as TFT-LCD TV’s and newer applications such as touchpanels, used for phones and tablet PC’s as well as OLED devices of all kinds. These are exciting times for Applied's Display group because never before have we offered a more comprehensive line up of products to take advantage of emerging display opportunities.
One of the highlights on the first day of the show was the debut of the world’s largest 3-D LED TV and Samsung’s exhibit.
Additional activities we are involved in at the show include two speaking opportunities, one on Touch Panel Solutions and another on the proliferation of rotary targets in the FPD industry. For information about our lineup of products visit our web site.
In the mean time, I will continue to provide updates this week from FPD International on the cool new display devices and the equipment opportunity they represent for Applied Materials.
