S-LCD Corporation (Hangul: 에스 엘시디, Japanese: エス・エルシーディー) is a South Korean manufacturer of amorphous TFT LCD panels, owned by Samsung Electronics.
The company was established in April 2004 in Chungcheongnam-do, South Korea as a joint venture between Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd (51% share) and Sony Corporation (now known as Sony Group Corporation)(49% share).
S-LCD, as of April 25, 2008, operated with a monthly production capacity of 100,000 seventh-generation amorphous silicon (a-Si) panels and 50,000 eighth-generation panels based on PVA technology, which are integrated into both Samsung Electronics and Sony LCD televisions. S-LCD originally had production facilities in both Japan and South Korea. Due to rising costs and an increasing demand from the Latin American market, S-LCD opened production facilities in Baja California, Mexico, where both Samsung and Bravia have large LCD production facilities.
On December 26, 2011, Samsung Electronics announced that it will acquire all of Sony's shares. On January 19, 2012, Sony sold to Samsung all of its shares of S-LCD for 1.07 trillion Korean won (72 billion Japanese yen) in cash.
SLCD, S-LCD or Super LCD is also generally used term for an evolution of TN based TFT-LCD technology (e.g. iPhone 3GS uses S-LCD from LG Display)
