This new 12.1-inch model boasts a high-intensity back-light system and improved efficiency of back-light use due to optimized design, resulting in luminance of 1100cd/m2. Accordingly, high brightness can be maintained even when a touch panel is installed. Furthermore, it achieves a wide operating-temperature range of -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius. These new features make this new model ideal for installation in ATMs, vending machines, point-of-sales systems for gas-stations and GPS navigators.
NEC LCD Technologies will also begin selling another three new amorphous silicon TFT color LCD modules. The new products comprise of a 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC31-42D, an 8.4-inch (21cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC21-04 and a 7.0-inch (18cm-diagonal) wide quarter video graphics array (WQVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL4823BC37-05. All three new models achieve high brightness of 400cd/m2, a high contrast ratio of 600:1, a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees horizontally and 140 degrees vertically (contrast ratio greater than 10:1), a quick response time of 25ms and a wide operating-temperature range of -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius.
All of the new models including NL8060BC31-36 will be displayed at FPD International 2006, which is being held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan, from October 18 - 20.
