TMD's new LED display family
Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Corporation display panels

LED technology is slowly being accepted by notebook manufacturers looking to improve the quality of their displays. With LED technology, manufacturers can produce thinner, lighter LCD panels which offer superior contrast and luminance. Other perks include high brightness levels, faster response times and lower power consumption than traditional CCFL LCD displays.

We've already seen notebooks hit the market that feature LED-backlit displays including the Sony VAIO TX3 Series, the Asus U1F and the Fujitsu LifeBook P7230. Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology Corporation (TMD) hopes to expand the LED-backlit field by offering a new family of displays ranging in size from 8.9" to 13.3" aimed at UMPCs, notebooks and Tablet PCs.

The displays have a thickness of just 2.5mm and advances have been made to reduce the weight of the panels. In the case of the 10.4" and 12.1" panels, weight comes in at a mere 4.2 ounces and 4.8 ounces respectively.

Power consumption ranges from 2.4 watts for the 10.4" XGA display to 4 watts for the 13.3" WXGA display. Brightness varies between 200 cd/m2 on the 8.9" display to 300 cd/m2 for the 12.1", 10.6" and 13.3" displays.

TMD is forecasting that over 50% of its LCD production will be shifted over to LED technology by the latter half of 2007.
