Samsung Electronics, one of the world's largest provider of thin-film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels, announced that it is accelerating its plans to standardize on 40 in and 46 in LCD panels for the mass TV market. Samsung will begin installing critical equipment the week of Aug. 1 at a new LCD production line to produce a glass substrate identical to the one at its nearby joint venture (S-LCD) production facility with Sony Corporation.

By replicating the substrate size (1870 mm by 2200 mm) of the S-LCD (7-1) Line, the company is moving aggressively to assume a strong leadership position in large LCD panel supply worldwide through standardization of high definition LCD TVs targeting living room environments. The substrate is suited for 40 in and 46 in TV panels. From a single plate, eight 40 in panels or six 46 in panels can be produced simultaneously.

The company plans to begin mass production at Line 7-2, optimized for 40 in and 46 in LCD TV panels, in April 2006. When fully ramped, Line 7-2 will produce 45,000 sheets per month. The new line, which will cost approximately one trillion won (approx. U.S. $975 million) to build, consists of a FAB facility area of 90,000 pyong (300,000 sq m) and a module facility area of 28,000 pyong (93,000 sq m). (Yahoo Finance)
