Santa Clara, Calif. NEC Electronics America, Inc. has expanded its portfolio of thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules for industrial mobile applications with the introduction of three 2.7-inch (6.8-centimeters-diagonal) quarter video graphic array (QVGA) amorphous silicon color LCD modules.
All three of the new modules the NL2432HC17-07A, NL2432HC17-04A and NL2432HC17-05B target a variety of mobile industrial products such as handheld bar code scanners and handheld ordering terminals.
The NL2432HC17-07A module offers high luminance of 550 candelas per square meter (cd/m2) and a high contrast ratio of 400:1, making the module suitable for many handheld applications. The LCD module offers a slim profile of 2.6 millimeters (mm) thick, breaking the 3-mm barrier, said the company. It also includes integrated features such as a timing controller and DC/DC converter.
The transflective QVGA NL2432HC17-04A module features NEC LCD Technologies' super-reflective natural light technology (SR-NLT), high reflectivity of 35 percent, a contrast ratio of 150:1 and luminance of 140 cd/m2. The transmissive NL2432HC17-05B module has QVGA resolution, high luminance of 350 cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 400:1.
Two of the three new 2.7-inch modules (the NL2432HC17-07A and NL2432HC17-04A) will be on display at Society for Information Display (SID) Symposium 2007 in Long Beach, California in NEC Electronics America's booth #1234. Several other display modules for mobile applications will also be on display including a prototype for a 3.5-inch display module with ultra-advanced, super-fine TFT (UA-SFT) VGA resolution and a 4.3-inch LCD module with wide QVGA (WQVGA) resolution that incorporates both super-advanced SFT (SA-SFT) technology and SR-NLT technology.
Availability: Samples are available. The NL2432HC17-04A and NL2432HC17-05B display modules are scheduled to begin shipping in May.
