NLT Technologies Expands Mid-Size Offerings for Industrial Display Applications

New 15.6-inch and 19.0-inch LCD Modules With LED Backlights Deliver Superior Viewability, Reliability and Low-Power Operation
(PresseBox) (Düsseldorf, Germany, ) Renesas Electronics Europe, the sales and marketing channel in Europe for NLT Technologies Ltd., (NLT), today introduced two new amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules, a 15.6-inch (39.6 centimeters diagonal) model and a 19.0-inch (48 centimeters diagonal) model. The new modules incorporate white LED backlights for use in industrial display applications, this combination of the company's distinguished LCD panel technology and white LED backlight system enables superior product features and reliability. The LED backlight system also contributes to a lower environmental impact, due to the design for low power consumption and because LED is mercury free.

Renesas Electronics and NLT Technologies will showcase the new LCD modules in booth (#301) at Display Week 2013, May 21-23, at the Vancouver Convention Center in Vancouver, Canada.

"Wide format displays are experiencing broader adoption in the industrial equipment market, as they offer increased opportunities for data display and functionality, however, we also see continuing demand for the conventional aspect ratio, 4:3 or 5:4, for use in medical and industrial equipment," said Hideto Tachimoto, Senior Manager LCD Marketing and Supply Chain Management, Renesas Electronics Europe. "Developed with these needs in mind, the new 19.0-inch module with 5:4 aspect ratio and 15.6-inch module with wide aspect 16:9 offer superior viewability and performance to support whichever format our customers require."

Superior characteristics for industrial applications

The new 15.6-inch module offers the performance and feature set needed for industrial equipment including:

- Wide operating and storage temperature ranges (-20 to +70 O C / -20 to +80 O C)"
- High luminance of 400cd/m2
- Long-life span
- Replaceable LED
- Built-in LED backlight driver circuit

Wide aspect ratio format

Recently, the need for wide format LCDs has increased in the industrial equipment market as broadcasters and computer system software adopt wide format. The new 15.6-inch WXGA module has been developed to meet this demand, with a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. It also achieves a fast response time to allow smooth display of video images and special features including "tickers" and scrolling news updates.

19.0-inch SXGA color model NL128102AC29-17
High level of visibility

The modules deliver superior viewability thanks to a combination of NLT's proprietary LED backlight system design, for high-luminance of 800 candelas per square meter and a high contrast ratio of 1000:1 achieved by applying NLT's proprietary high-quality imaging technology Super Fine TFT (SFT) technology. The result is a high-resolution 19.0-inch SXGA LCD module that is ideal for use in medical displays that require the precise reproduction of shadow and off angle color representation, or for industrial displays used in bright environments. In these markets, there is still strong demand for conventional aspect ratio such as 4:3 or 5:4. The new 19.0-inch SXGA module with 5:4 aspect ratio has been developed to serve these markets.

Reliable performance

In both new modules, the LED backlight system delivers both long life span and high luminance. Moreover, by improving the LCD panel component and design, it achieves a wide operating temperature range from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius. This guarantees stable, long-term operation even in the extreme temperature conditions required for industrial applications.

The new products are planned for release in August 2013. For specifications on the new modules, please refer to the separate spec sheet.
