Fujitsu teams up with Hitachi for plasma display production
Richard Wilson
Fujitsu and Hitachi have formed a joint venture to develop, manufacture and market large-screen plasma display panels (PDPs).
The joint venture, to be called Fujitsu Hitachi Plasma Display, builds on an earlier agreement. The two companies have been working together to develop next- generation PDP technology and volume production technology since signing a joint development agreement in July 1998.
Fujitsu and Hitachi will transfer their large-screen PDP operations to the new joint venture company.
Demand for PDPs as information displays in business has been growing say the firms. By the year 2003, the annual worldwide market for these products is expected to reach 3 million units.
