Japan Display will start mass production of a 12.3-inch variant liquid crystal display (LCD) modules in April, designed exclusively for instrument panels.
Initiated for automotive navigation systems and entertainment applications, automotive LCD displays can now be used in instrument panels and rear view monitors, following improvements in the wide viewing angle technology and high contrast technology. Challenging the stereotypical LCD panel form, namely the rectangle, a hexagonal LCD panel with the two upper corners of the rectangle cut off will dramatically broaden the freedom of automotive interior designs. In addition, this product is equipped with a magnesium frame on its back plane to obtain robustness, heat radiation and lightweight features.
In addition to JDI’s IPS technology, the 12.3-inch large-screen display provides high luminance at 1,000 cd/m2.
With the two upper corners of the rectangle cut off, the new module enables a larger display screen than the existing model to be matched with rounded instrument panels.
