E Ink FFS LCD Production: LG Display → Chunghwa Picture Tubes

DIGITIMES:

E Ink Holdings (EIH) will suspend a cooperation agreement it signed with LG Display for the production of FFS (fringe field switching) LCD panels and will buy back a sum of corporate bonds (CBs) issued by its Korea-based subsidiary Hydis Technologies from LG Display, according to EIH.

FFS, originally developed by Hydis, has performance similar to IPS and has been used in lieu of IPS LCDs. E Ink will manufacture FFS LCD panels at Chunghwa Picture Tubes’s (CPT) G6 fab.
