  • Fujitsu, Hitachi to Co-Develop Plasma Display Panels
  • August 25, 1998 (TOKYO) -- Fujitsu Ltd. and Hitachi Ltd. said they will jointly develop and market plasma display panels.
    As the major target of the tie-up, the two companies said they will aim at shortening the turnaround time needed to market PDP products and reducing production costs.

    Fujitsu and Hitachi have already launched a Panel Development Project that plans to develop new commodities using PDPs, an Advanced Performance Project that improves PDP characteristics such as light emitting efficiency, and an Advanced Process Development Project that comprises engineering activities for production lines to mass-produce PDPs.

    The two companies will commercialize television sets using a PDP panel as early as the spring of 1999, officials at the companies said.
