Citing Sharp, DisplaySearch analysts pointed out that the Japanese brand, which took advantage of its 10-generation production lines to lower costs, has cut unit prices of its 60-inch CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp
) and LED-backlit LCD TVs retailed by BestBuy to only US$799 and US$999, respectively, since the first black Friday after Thanksgiving.
26, 2011 (CENS)--The market penetration rates for LED-lit TVs and LED-lit monitors are estimated to surge to 68.4% and 71.9% worldwide, respectively, in 2012, mostly thanks to recent markdowns of LED backlight modules, which are now priced at only US$7 above that of cold cathode fluorescent lamp
(CCFL) modules, according to market consulting firm WitsView Technology Corp.
is said to provide an economical, high-efficiency power source with closed-loop current control, open lamp detection, wide input voltage range (8V DC to 18V DC) and a low profile of 6 mm for LCDs backlit by a single cold cathode fluorescent lamp
It is designed to drive a single cold cathode fluorescent lamp
(CCFL) fused in small handheld displays.
For international brands, any increase in panel pricing will have to be borne and accepted, especially for models based on the pre-LED backlighting technology of cold cathode fluorescent lamp
(CCFL), the research firm said.
Miller has introduced a cold cathode fluorescent lamp
(CCFL) Inverter Transformer Series in an SMT package.
(a cold cathode fluorescent lamp
producer), have diversified into touch panels to cash in on huge business opportunities in the segment, in addition to Chunghwa Picture.
Features include a viewing area of 120.0 mm X 90.0 mm, supply voltage between 2.7V DC to 5.5V DC, an 8-bit parallel data interface, an optional four-wire resistive touch panel and one replaceable cold cathode fluorescent lamp
In the meantime, Amtran is worried about LED shortages in 2011, and stated that with selling prices going down, LED-backlit LCD TVs will replace traditional CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp
) TVs more quickly in the coming years than now, and, consequently, also use a large part of limited LED supply in the future.
Despite the expected substantial growth in shipments of TVs, the industry is currently concerned about the sufficient supply of CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp
) and LED (light emitting diode) backlight.
