Metal oxide thin-film transistors (TFTs) are required for ultra-high-resolution displays, using indium-gallium-zinc-oxide (IGZO, yellow) as the channel between source and drain (S/D, gray) deposited below a gate insulator (GI, blue) and all covered with a passivization layer (Pass'n, green), which is protected from the channel with an etch-stop layer (ESL, red).

It seems your "analysis" is suggesting that KT is offering PVD equipment...did I miss something?

Thanks metroman2k--should read Ulvac. KLA and Lam are Applied's competitors on semiconductor side.

Applied will probably play a major role in the future of display manufacturing. Display industry is going through many more advancements than any one would have thought majority because of the importance of displays in every consumer device these days.

How about metal-oxide for PIN-panels ?

PIN-panels for X-ray medical imaging are now in amorphous silicon TFT.

When will they go in metal-oxide like displays ?

According to Applied Materials, all display manufacturers considering pixel densities above 250 pixels per inch will eventually make the switch to metal-oxide.
