Recently, information equipments (ex. cellular phones, PDAs) have an impact on the business field, with the development of information-network technologies such as internet, wireless communication, high-speed CPU, large capacity of memory and so on. Looking at the other areas, new
wave of information network are also surging our society, where homes, cars, education and so forth, and it will cause a drastic change in life style. Such a revolution of society will make the liquid-crystal display much worth than ever as a key component of novel products, because of
the advantages of lighter weight, weight, thinner thickness, low-power consumption and excellent legibility. Especially, TFT-LCDs have been playing this important role, corresponding to the circumstances, and the performances of the LCDs have been remarkably improved with the spiral-up of
core devices and applications, in recent years. This paper will describe such advances of TFT-LCDs in terms of display quality, resolution, size, power consumption and added values. It will also discuss the future prospects of TFT-LCDs reflecting several applications.
