FPD Lithography Equipment for Large Panels

Television screens continue to grow larger alongside the accelerating shift to 4K. Supporting this advancement are the flat-panel display (FPD) lithography systems used to manufacture large, high-resolution LCD and organic LED (OLED) panels. In this video, we introduce the Canon technology helping to improve efficiency in panel manufacturing ― including an FPD lithography system that supports one-shot exposure of six 55-inch panels with thin-film transistor (TFT) circuitry capable of resolving Line/Space (L/S) features of 2.0 μm (approximately 1/50 the width of a human hair).

FPD Lithography Equipment for Small and Medium-Size Panels

Equipped with OLED displays, smartphones are becoming more and more sophisticated and achieving higher and higher resolutions. FPD (flat-panel display) lithography equipment supports the production of these high-resolution displays. Canon’s FPD lithography equipment utilizes a concave mirror measuring 1.5 meters in diameter ― developed in-house ― that can expose circuits with a linewidth of 1.2 micrometers (about 1/75 the width of a human hair) onto large glass substrates. Making possible the on-shot exposure of 200 six-inch smartphone displays, this equipment contributes to increased productivity for display production.
