The display division of Acer announced yesterday it is to spend NT$25 billion building its second TFT LCD factory in Taiwan. Earlier this month, Acer opened its first factory, which is set to produce up to 300,000 substrates by early next year. According to the report, Acer will use so-called Fourth Generation technology for the second plant. But Bob Raikes, director of analysis at Meko, said there was general agreement in the industry to stick with 3.5 generation technology. He said: "A Nikkei report said that the industry has got to stop waving their willies about the size of their plants". Currently, said Raikes, the only major company to talk about Fourth Generation manufacturing was NEC, while it was generally agreed that Samsung was currently the leader in 3.5 Generation technology. That allowed Samsung to produce four 17-inch panels from one substrate. ®
