Next-Generation iPad Backlight Supplier Revealed?

by on December 9th, 2010

This week, DigiTimes reports that suppliers of the backlight unit (BLU) for the next-generation iPad have been selected. This supplier rumoralso may confirm that Apple will not use OLED displays for the next iPad.

According to the DigiTimes report, Taiwanese company Coretronic has been selected to supply backlights to iPad display vendors Chimei Innolux and LG Display.

Coretronic has reportedly entered the supply chain for the second generation iPad, and will supply BLUs to Chimei Innolux (CMI) and LG Display.

It is understood that Coretronic is the only BLU supplier of CMI for iPad 2, while LG Display is getting iPad 2 BLUs from Coretronic and Radiant Opto-Electronics.

It is too bad that Apple may not use OLED displays in the next iPad as OLED technology can offer lower power requirements and better contrast than traditional LCD’s.
