OSAKA – Sanyo Electric Co. said Monday it has begun commercial shipments of next-generation, flat-panel organic electroluminescence (EL) displays manufactured by SK Display Corp., a joint venture between Sanyo and Eastman Kodak Co. of the United States.
The venture is aiming for monthly production of 100,000 units of 2-inch displays for use in digital cameras that will be released in April by Kodak. Organic EL displays consume less electricity and offer greater resolution than liquid crystal displays, which are used for computer screens and cell phone displays.
Sanyo said cell phones it plans to make for KDDI Corp. this year will feature the new displays. Monthly production of organic EL displays will rise to 1 million units of 2-inch displays by the end of the year.
