Blu-ray Laser Diodes In Tight Supply.

According to the Chinese-language Commercial Times.The yields for Blu-ray laser diodes are still low due to a high technical barrier, with only Sony and Nichia being the only suppliers, stated the paper.

In addition, Sony is setting aside a major proportion of its laser diode capacity for its upcoming PS3, which may also affect the availability of its Blu-ray laser diodes, the paper said.

Sony is currently the major supplier of laser diodes for Royal Philips Electronics, BenQ and Lite-on IT, the paper indicated.

The tight supply will not ease before September since Sony will not start shipping its PS3 before then, the paper said.
