NEC LCD Technologies, Ltd. today announced that it will begin shipping samples of its new 12.1-inch (31-centimeters-diagonal) SVGA, amorphous silicon, thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) module.
The new LCD enables display of vivid colors even in environments with high ambient light such as outdoors in sunny weather or indoors in direct sunlight.
This new 12.1-inch model boasts a high-intensity back-light system and improved efficiency of back-light use due to optimized design, resulting in luminance of 1100cd/m2. Accordingly, high brightness can be maintained even when a touch panel is installed. Furthermore, it achieves a wide operating-temperature range of -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius. These new features make this new model ideal for installation in ATMs, vending machines, point-of-sales systems for gas-stations and GPS navigators.
NEC LCD Technologies will also begin selling another three new amorphous silicon TFT color LCD modules. The new products comprise of a 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC31-42D, an 8.4-inch (21cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC21-04 and a 7.0-inch (18cm-diagonal) wide quarter video graphics array (WQVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL4823BC37-05. All three new models achieve high brightness of 400cd/m2, a high contrast ratio of 600:1, a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees horizontally and 140 degrees vertically (contrast ratio greater than 10:1), a quick response time of 25ms and a wide operating-temperature range of -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius.
All of the new models including NL8060BC31-36 will be displayed at FPD International 2006, which is being held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan, from October 18 - 20.
