Intel CULV platform to push LED-backlit LCD displays

Posted on Saturday, April 18 2009 @ 09:00:18 CEST by

Sources at Taiwanese backlight unit makers told DigiTimes that Intel's new CULV platform for ultrathin notebooks will boost the penetration rate of LED-backlit LCD displays from 40 percent to around 70-80 percent by the end of the year.
Taiwan-based LED chipmakers Epistar and Opto Tech, packaging houses Lite-On Technology and LightHouse Technology, and BLU makers Radiant Opto-Electronics and Taiwan Nano Electro-Optical Technology are expected to benefit from the launch of CULV ultra-thin notebooks, the sources noted.

The price gap between CCFL BLU and LED BLU is estimated to drop to US$15 in 2009, the sources added, noting that LED-backlit notebooks consume 40-50% less power compared to CCFL-backlit models.

I want widely available 24" and 30" LED BLU units and there are only 2 24" models available. The stated reason is the limited availability of LED diodes in quantities sufficient for the task and the volume. So, given the volume of notebooks, I'd be cautious to say just how "widely available" these things are going to be in 2009. The amount of available LED's is still going to be an issue.
