NLT Technologies and Renesas Electronics America unveiled two new color thin film transistor (TFT) LCD modules, expanding its industrial wide aspect ratio display modules. Featuring ultra-wide angle viewing for enhanced image viewability and low power consumption, two new 10.6-inch WXGA display modules are optimized for use in portable medical equipment, industrial equipment and industrial-grade tablets that require increased data display and reliable color reproduction with off-angle viewing and varying display orientations.
The 10.6-inch display modules feature ultra-wide viewing angles of 176 degrees horizontally and vertically, high brightness of 300 candelas per square meter (cd/m2) and a high-contrast ratio of 1000:1, all in a small-profile, narrow frame.
The wide aspect ratio format offers greater flexibility in the amount of data displayed. To achieve high-luminance, wide color gamut and vivid color display levels, the new 10.6-inch LCD modules incorporate two of NLT Technologies’ advanced core technologies – Ultra Advanced Super-Fine TFT (UA-SFT), NLT’s version of in-plane-switching technology (IPS), and ColorXcell, an integrated color-enhancement technology that delivers color reproduction that is comparable in color intensity to the original video source, without tint or color variance and with minimal increase in power consumption.
The UA-SFT technology allows images to be viewed easily and accurately in both portrait and landscape orientation from almost any angle without color shift or compromising brightness. This viewing flexibility is important for applications where the display orientation may vary or where users require accurate imaging results from multiple viewing angles, such as portable medical imaging and diagnostics or test and measurement equipment.
Typically, higher saturated color filters are needed to improve color reproduction but at the cost of reduced transmissivity. NLT’s ColorXCell technology uses standard color filters without the loss of transmissivity, so no increase in backlighting is needed, maintaining lower power consumption. The new 10.6-inch display modules also feature an LED backlight system with built-in LED driver that can support a wide input voltage range, from 5V-12V. This provides customers and design engineers with greater flexibility depending upon their design needs.
