AU Optronics Developing Retina Panel for New iPad Mini
XINZHU, Nov 07, 2012 (Menafn - SinoCast Daily Business Beat via COMTEX) --With the disclosure of the specifications for the next-generation iPad Mini by Apple Inc. AAPL, AU Optronics Corp. (AUO, NYSE: AUO) has been developing a retina panel with resolution as high as 497ppi.
AUO plans to apply the retina panel to the next-generation iPad Mini, since the resolution of the product is much higher than that of 326ppi of the new iPad.
It is said that ultrahigh resolution can not be developed without the technology of indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO), and the technology of Gate IC on array (GOA) is also indispensable since the next-generation iPad Mini will have an ultra-narrow frame. The technology of GOA helps save the room of IC on the rim and narrow the frame of the screen to the largest extent.
Speaking of the progress of the development of iPad Mini, AUO claimed that it had solved the problem of yield and there would be no light leak as existed before. The company would ship the products in large scale in the fourth quarter.
