Now that your product has an LCD or touch panel in it, your device is ready for production and is on the market. But has the panel you chose reached the end of its production life, and you can’t seem to find a replacement anywhere?
As new technologies develop and form factors are able to be condensed, panel manufacturers and producers will discontinue the production of old redundant panels. However, oftentimes they (or their competitors) will also release compatible models. These models generally have the same resolution and size, with better contrast ratios, brightness, or condensed circuitry to control the panel!
