Sharp to Move Equipment into 10.5G China Fab in February 2019


In February 2019, Sharp will begin moving equipment into its new 10.5G LCD fab in Guangzhou, China, according to Digitimes. The publication cites a report from Korea’s ET News.

Digitimes’ report goes on to say that the facility will produce 45,000 substrates per month, in sizes between 40″ and 69″. First-phase production will apparently commence in August 2019, with volume production following in October and a second-phase expansion of an additional 45,000 units a month planned for 2020.
