Sony to sell an LTPS LCD plant to Kyocera

Sony plans to sell an LCD plant that makes small-sized panels to Kyocera. Sony are moving away from LTPS (low-temperature polysilicon) and into a-Si (amorphous silicon) - they have just completed a deal to buy Seiko-Epson's small-size LCD operations that use the latter technology.

This is an interesting move by Sony, and might have implications on their OLED program, which shares some of the manufacturing process of LTPS LCDs.
