NEC LCD Technologies has announced five new amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules incorporating a newly designed LED unit that achieves both long operating life of 70,000 hours and low power consumption in the backlight system. These new products enhance NEC LCD Technologies' core product lineup of TFT LCD modules featuring white LED backlight systems.
Recently, the demand for LCD modules equipped with white LED backlight systems has risen rapidly in various industrial applications due to the systems’ lower power consumption, thinner/lighter backlight housings and higher resistance to shock and vibration compared to CCFL backlight systems. Furthermore, white LEDs do not require an inverter circuit, which generates high-frequency noise and harmonic current that can cause peripheral equipment malfunctions and hinder precise testing results.
NEC LCD Technologies has enhanced its LCD module lineup with white LED backlight in response to the high demand for portable terminals and portable measurement equipment with compact LCD modules that require low power consumption and have high resistance to shock and vibration. The industrial display market continues to demand a broad range of white LED based LCD modules.
“The addition of these five LCD modules featuring white LED backlight will enhance our core product lineup and meet the diverse market demands of industrial display applications,” said Hidetoshi Usui, Product Planning Department Manager at NEC LCD Technologies. “The strength of our white LED-based product lineup for industrial use is now represented by 11 models, ranging in seven different sizes from 5.7 to 12.1 inches, with four different resolutions from VGA to XGA.”
NEC LCD Technologies will continue to enhance its lineup of LCD modules featuring white LED-based backlight systems to address the needs of a variety of industrial applications. The company also aims to broaden the range of environments where LCD modules can be used through continued enhancement of its LCD modules’ performance.
