NEC LCD Technologies recently introduced two new 15-inch [38 centimeters (cm)-diagonal] amorphous-silicon color thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules with extended graphics array (XGA) resolution for industrial equipment such as factory automation controllers, measuring instruments, automatic teller machine (ATM) terminals, kiosks, and point-of-sale (POS) systems. The NL10276BC30-32 is a standard product with brightness of 250 candelas per square meter (cd/m2), while the NL10276BC30-33 has brightness of 350 cd/m2. Both modules conform to the Panel Standardization Working Group (PSWG) standards for 15-inch LCD modules.
The main characteristics of the new models are:
- Improved viewability
The new products feature wide viewing angles, high contrast ratios and a fast response time. These features enable information to be reproduced on screen quickly, precisely, and without stress.
- Wide viewing angle: 160 degrees horizontally (H) and 140 degrees vertically (V), compared to conventional viewing angles of 120 degrees (H) and 100 degrees (V)
- High contrast ratio: 600:1, compared to the conventional 400:1
- Fast response time: 18 milliseconds (ms), compared to the conventional 25 ms
- Extended operating temperature range
Operating temperature has been extended from 0 to +50 degrees Celsius to –10 to +70 degrees Celsius, thereby enabling use in environments susceptible to high temperatures and various temperature changes.
- Conformance to the PSWG standard
Both products conform to the PSWG standard for 15-inch LCD display modules and are footprint and interface-compatible with other 15-inch LCD modules from NEC LCD Technologies, namely the NL10276BC30-17, NL10276BC30-18 and NL10276BC30-18C. This compatibility allows device designers to incorporate the modules into multiple platforms, offer a variety of feature sets, and develop upgraded products using high-end LCD modules such as the NL10276BC30-17.
