Letterbox format rugged+ TFT displays with wide aspect ratio
KOE (Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics) has announced the introduction of two new 6.3" letter-box format TFT display modules. The new Rugged+ TX16D204VM0BAA and TX16D205VM0BAA displays both feature a resolution of 800x280px, a wide 8:3 aspect ratio, the latest IPS (in-plane switching) technology, and are available with a brightness specification of 500cd/m² and 1000cd/m² respectively.
Providing the ideal display solution for use in panel and rack mounted equipment, portable instruments, domestic appliances and smart meters, KOE's IPS display technology delivers exceptional colour saturation and image stability, high contrast and deep black levels. Viewing angles of up to 170° are supported in all directions (left/right, up/down).
The 6.3” display modules feature a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a white LED backlight with a specified brightness rating of 1000cd/m² for the TX16D205VM0BAA, 500cd/m² for the TX16D204VM0BAA, and a 50K hour half-brightness lifetime. These key features ensure that display images are bright, colourful and accurately reproduced.
The optical and environmental specifications of KOE's Rugged+ display modules are derived from equivalent quality levels as those used in automotive grade displays. The new 6.3” display modules have been developed for use under extreme temperature, mechanical shock and vibration environments where guaranteed and consistent display operation is essential.
KOE's 6.3” Rugged+ TFT display modules will provide reliable operation in extreme temperature environments with an operating temperature range of -30 to +85°C.
Additionally, the cosmetic specification of KOE's Rugged+ 6.3” display modules defines zero bright dot defects, which provides users with the assurance and peace of mind of a premium, high quality display module.
Benson Huang, Marketing Manager, KOE said: "The letterbox format of the 6.3” Rugged+ modules provide the ideal display solution for a wide range of industrial and commercial products and applications. The high brightness option enables improved outdoor readability which further broadens the scope of these high performance TFT displays."
The TX16D204VM0BAA's brightness specification of 500cd/m² is ideal for low ambient light and indoor applications, whereas the TX16D205VM0BAA's rating of 1000cd/m² is suitable for outdoor applications where higher brightness is required.
A 50-pin CMOS interface supports 18-bit RGB data which enables a colour palette of up to 262K colours. Both modules have mechanical outline dimensions of 167x69.0x9.0mm, with an active LCD area of 150.0x52.5mm.
KOE is committed to ensuring long-term product availability, with continuity of supply essential for many industrial products and equipment. KOE's new Rugged+ displays can now be sourced and supplied for a minimum period of five years. The KOE 6.3” TX16D204VM0BAA and TX16D205VM0BAA TFT display modules are available now.
