Kyocera announced today that its next-generation LCD displays will be showcased at DisplayWeek 2015 this week. The company’s innovative thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD displays allow bright colors to be seen clearly even in intense sunlight – making them ideal for industrial applications including medical, aerospace, marine, test and measurement, and factory automation equipment.
Kyocera’s new 10.4” XGA (TCG104XGLP) and 12.1” XGA (TCG121XGLP) TFT-LCD displays feature 1024 x 768 resolution and the latest high-efficiency, long-lifetime LED backlights with brightness ratings of 1300cd/m2 (10.4”) and 1200cd/m2 (12.1”). Powered with Kyocera’s Advanced Wide View (AWV) technology, the displays achieve a wide, 85-degree viewing angle in all directions. Kyocera’s LED driver circuit is fully integrated, eliminating the need for additional components to drive the backlights. The new TFT-LCDs are designed with a standard LVDS interface, and offer a wide operating temperature range of -30º to 80º C, ideal for outdoor applications.
“Kyocera has been creating innovative LCD technology for almost 40 years, ensuring we provide long-term support to our customers, which is especially important in the automotive, industrial and medical equipment industries,” said Jim Little, Director of Industrial Sales, Kyocera Display Division. “All of our TFT LCDs are RoHS compliant and we strive to continually reduce our environmental impact in manufacturing.”
Kyocera will bring its full Industrial TFT line-up, ranging from 3.5” to 12.1”, to the DisplayWeek 2015 event. Also on exhibit will be Kyocera’s new On-Cell Touch (OCT) technology and many new automotive display products, such as Head-Up-Displays (HUD) and TFT-LCDs for full automotive instrumentation clusters.
