The Future Brought to You by IGZO
(Indium Gallium Zinc Oxide)
Company Name
SHARP CORPORATION
Hall Exhibition Hall 4 Booth 4B70
Summary The world's first oxide semiconductor to be successfully mass-produced
IGZO is a compound semiconductor capable of offering electron mobility 20 to 50 times faster than amorphous silicon. This means IGZO transistors can be thinner and smaller, making it possible to achieve display definition twice that of a conventional LCD but with the same transmittance. Moreover, since continuous current is not required for an IGZO display, significant energy savings are possible. This technology helps to reduce energy loss and contributes greatly to the advancement of smart technologies.
Appraisal IGZO makes it possible to create smaller thin-film transistors that offer higher performance and greater definition. It has the potential to drive the development of new product markets in the fields of mobile equipment – including the global smartphone market, which is set to grow yet further – and displays, such as LCD monitors.
