In the blog post of Jan. 7th, we have explained the LG Phillips-made LCD screen model numbers. In this post, we will explain the logic behind composing a model number for LCD screens made by AU Optronics (more commonly referred to as AUO).
Every LCD made by AUO will have the model number starting with “B”. The next 3 numbers refer to the LCD screen size (e.g. B133 means the LCD is 13.3″; B121 is for a 12.1″ LCD, and so on).
The next letter after the size denotes the screen resolution:
X = 1366×768
R = 1600×900
H = 1920×1080
The next letter after the resolution tells the LCD type – if it is TN or IPS:
T= TN (regular view)
A = IPS (wide view)
The next letter after the type tells if the LCD is made for a touchscreen laptop:
N = no touch screen
T = touchscreen
The digits following after the touchscreen parameter is for the revision of the LCD. They do not have a particular meaning, and they are assigned in a numerical order, as the LCD’s are being produced.
Next is HW number – sometimes important (LCDs may have different brackets alignment, different video connector and/or pins, special EDID, etc).
In most cases, it is best to order according to the LCD model number. If you are unsure what LCD screen you need to order, make sure to contact us prior to placing your order.
