Liquid crystals were first discovered in 1888, by Austrian botanist Friedrich reinitzer. Since then LCD manufactures have steadily developed ingenious variations and improvements on the technology, taking the LCD to amazing levels of technical complexity. They are all around us - in laptop computers, digital clocks and watches, microwave ovens, CD players and many other electronic devices. LCD technology is constantly evolving LCDs today employ several variations of liquid crystal technology, including Twisted Neumatics (TN), Super Twisted Neumatics (STN) Dual Scan Twisted Neumatics (DSTN) Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal (FLC), Surface Stabilized Ferroelectric Liquid Crystal (SSFLC), Colour STN Active Matrix TFTs etc. Applications for liquid crystal displays now extend beyond calculators and digital watches to countless other products, including word processors, television and are today,s man machine interface.
The present focus on manufactures is now color LCDs for displays ranging from the minute to the massive
In order to explore the business potential that exists for LCDs in various applications like Telecommunication Products, PDAs, Instrumentation products, Avionics, Automotive, Household Appliances, Embedded Systems and Software Development applications in the global markets, Lampex has redefined its focus through R&D and implementation processes. IT subsequently expanded into the SMT (Surface Mount Technology) line via high speed chip mounters and fully automatic stencil printers; and installed COB (chip on Board) facility for LCD Modules and related applications keeping the global perspective in mind Lampex is in the process of establishing a worldwide
