These new modules will add to and expand the standard product line-up as follows:
- A range of XGA (1024 x 768 pixel) resolution display modules, featuring a 4:3 aspect ratio, available in 6.4”, 10.4” and 12.1” sizes.
- An extensive line-up of WXGA (1280 x 800 pixel) resolution display modules, featuring a 16:10 aspect ratio, available in 7.0”, 8.0” 10.6” and 12.1” sizes.
- A series of HD (1920 x 720 pixel) resolution Rugged+ modules will be available in 10.3”, 12.3” and 15.0” sizes.
Amid challenging supply chain and market conditions, KOE experienced an increase in demand for medium size TFT displays during 2020. The progressive expansion of the standard product line-up will ensure that KOE remains fully committed to providing an extensive choice of high quality, technically advanced TFT displays for a wide range of vertical market applications.
Benson Huang, Marketing Manager, KOE said: “Throughout the difficult market conditions of the past 12 months we have seen an increase in demand for many medium-size, high resolution TFT display modules from all sales regions.
