Samsung’s 7-inch LCD panel

Samsung’s 7-inch LCD panel

Samsung Electronics announced that it has developed the industry’s first amorphous silicon (a-Si) seven-inch, single-chip TFT-LCD panel that reproduces colours in high resolution (WVGA-level, 800×480 pixels). The seven-inch LCDs are mostly used in mobile devices including DMB (digital multimedia broadcasting), PMP (portable multimedia players) and CNS (car navigation systems), and normally require 4 to 7 drive ICs(integrated circuit). Also, on a conventional seven-inch LCD panel, the T-con (time controller that drives the screen), power platform and other components typically are attached to a circuit board on the exterior of the LCD. The complexity of this integration point has been a major obstacle to slimming the package profile of mobile LCD devices. The new single-chip design, with a contrast ratio of 400:1 and a brightness level of 450 nits, uses Samsung’s unique ASG (amorphous silicon gate) technology. The ASG incorporates the Gate-driver IC function directly on the surface of the glass panel, while simultaneously integrating the T-con function within the Drive-IC. In the single-chip design, the surface area of the drive circuit and the number of components that it contains are each one-third less than that used in existing WVGA panel designs.

Samsung’s t509 cell phone

Seems that among cell phones these days there is a goal of creating the slimmest phone available, and starting with Motorola’s RAZR slimness has been a main focal point of many companies. Well it seems that Motorola has a new challenger. If you thought that the RAZR was slim, think again. Samsung has announced their new t509 cell phone which is by far the slimmest cell available in the US. While only 9.8mm thick the cell phone is packed with a great amount of features including, believe it or not a camera. So far the slimmest bar shaped phone from Motorola is the SLVR which is 1.7mm thicker than the t509.
