Paper Abstract

The APC- LG-LCD relationship continues to expand with new products developed specifically for APC applications and also LG-LCD products developed for the consumer market, but adapted using APC enhancements for applications in the rugged world. Our delivery performance has proven that a superior, cost effective product can only be produced by incorporating product enhancements at the point of AMLCD manufacture. Further adaptations for specific applications can be simplified by utilizing the same part number panel for multiple platform uses. The manufacturing environment must be flexible enough to run multiple part numbers on a weekly basis. As such, manufacturing automation implemented at APC continues to strengthen our position as the world leader in custom AMLCD display modules. These automation initiatives are the direct result of APC learning the LG-LCD manufacturing method and applying these principals to our particular processes. The APC - LG-LCD relationship affords availability guarantees for display modules for a period of 10 years, thereby reducing procurement risk and minimizing costs associated with redesign when using consumer driven panels. This guarantee redefines the game rules for procurement of AMLCD's. We also offer a very quick turn for those customers who prefer to perform a lifetime buy of product. Typically, thousands of panels can be delivered within six months of a production go ahead. The APC -LC-LCD team remains successful due to the many years spent working together to develop and manufacture products that this niche market demands. The mutual respect for the technical and manufacturing operations at APC and LG-LCD continues to foster a relationship that time and again deliver superior, cost effective products to the market.
