Camas, Wash. To support the growing trend for VGA resolution in industrial markets, Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas offers a new high-resolution 6.4-inch transmissive TFT-LCD module. This new LCD meets the performance needs of design engineers in North America
integrating color VGA displays, or upgrading existing displays, into industrial applications that support VGA resolution such as control systems, factory automation, handheld instrumentation, test and measurement equipment, security monitors and GPS systems.
Sharp developed the 6.4-inch display, designated as LQ064V3DG01, in response to an increased demand for next-generation displays that feature greater on-screen performance characteristics in
a smaller, thinner and lighter package. By improving display processes and efficiencies such as a wider temperature range, greater shock resistance and longer backlight life, the new display offers greater price and performance for industrial markets, said the company. It also features higher reliability, resolution, brightness, and color saturation, as well as low reflection and wider viewing angles.
Developed to meet specific industrial design considerations, the new displays, for example, provide pinouts and connectors that are identical to previous versions for easy drop-in, allowing engineers to upgrade without redesigning the application. Key characteristics include 350 nits of brightness, power consumption of 4.7 watts, and a typical response time of 30 ms. It also offers a contrast ratio of 250:1, and is backlit with two CCFTs. The operating temperature is -10°C to 70°C.
The 6.4-inch TFT-LCD integrates seamlessly with other Sharp components including its BlueStreak microcontrollers, NOR Flash memory devices, optoelectronics, and other components. The new display is RoHS compliant, and does not contain any hazardous substances that are harmful to either human health or the environment, said the company.
The LQ064V3DG01 will be in mass production in first quarter 2005. Pricing for a one-piece engineering sample is $246.
