The Japanese technology Corporation Kyocera, a leading manufacturer in the field of electronic devices, announced two new wide format (16: 10) TFT-LCD displays that are in volume production now – new 10.1” and 12.1” WXGA TFT-LCDs.
Wide format TFT-LCDs provide a modern design look and allow more information to be displayed on the screen. The increased resolution and wide aspect ratio provide greater details and achieve a sharper image making them ideal for industrial applications including medical, agriculture, test and measurement, and marine applications.
The 10.1” WXGA (TCG101WXLP) TFT-LCD display features 1280 x 800 resolution, with a brightness of 500cd/m2 and a 800:1 contrast ratio. Viewing angle is 80-degree in all directions: left, right, top and bottom. Powered with high-efficiency LED backlights the total power consumption is only 4.46W.
The 12.1” WXGA (TCG121WXLP) TFT-LCD display features 1280 x 800 resolution, a brightness of 500cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 750:1. Powered with Kyocera’s Advanced Wide View (AWV) technology, providing a wide, 85-degree viewing angle in all directions: left, right, top and bottom with no colour inversion.
No additional components are required to drive the backlights as Kyocera’s LED driver circuit is integrated into both the 10.1” and 12.1” LCD modules. The new TFT-LCDs are designed with a standard LVDS interface and offer a wide operating temperature range of -20º to 70º C.
“Kyocera brings almost 40 years of experience in LCD technology innovation, helping to make the company a preferred supplier of displays for industrial applications as well as automotive and medical equipment,” said Eberhard Schill Sales Manager Distribution & Marketing at Kyocera Display Europe GmbH. “We continue our commitment to developing environmentally friendly products.”
