CSOT to set up 11G panel fab, say reports


China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) will invest CNY50 billion (US$7.74 billion) to set up an 11G TFT-LCD panle factory in Shenzhen, southern China, for production of large-size TV panels including 45- and 66-inch units, according to China-based media reports.

The factory will use glass substrates larger than 3m by 3m, each of which can be cut into panels of 18 different sizes to reach a maximum average cutting efficiency of 97%, the reports said.

CSOT is the second largest China-based panel maker, next only to BOE Technology. CSOT currently operates two 8.5G plants for large-size panels in Shenzhen and a 6G LTPS line for small- to medium-size units in Wuhan, central China.

CSOT will begin building another factory in Wuhan in 2016 to produce small- to medium-size OLED panels for smartphones and tablets.
