As an authorized distributor of display products from JDI, Edge is your trusted resource for EOL information and updates.

We have received some information regarding an EOL announcement as well as a factory closure announcement. Replacement part numbers for the EOL displays have not yet been announced, but more to come on that soon. Sample availability will also be announced soon.

We have put together a helpful FAQ that details some of the key information regarding this announcement:


Where is production moving to?

JDI will be moving production from the Tottori Fab to a new facility in Mobara, Japan.

Why is production ending at the Tottori facility?

The Tottori facility is a G4 facility, which has lower productivity and cost competitiveness compared to the newer G6 facilities. In addition, the Amorphous Silicon panels are experiencing lower demand from customers. JDI decided to end production at Tottori to better respond to customer needs with the newer Low Temperature Poly Silicon panels at the new facility in Mobara.

Are the LCD panels changing with the new facility?

The old panels, which were Amorphous Silicon, will now transfer to a Low Temperature Poly Silicon, meaning some customers may have to adjust their timing and firmware and/or hardware to support this change.

Which part numbers are being affected?
