NEC LCD Technologies, announced two new amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules with white LED backlights for industrial applications. The NL10276BC20-12 and NL10260BC19-01D modules consume less power, are thinner, and lighter than comparable LCD modules incorporating cold-cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) backlights.
The 10.4 inch (26 cm diagonal) module (NL10276BC20-12) with extended graphics array (XGA) resolution, and the 8.9 inch (23 cm diagonal) module (NL10260BC19-01D) with wide super-video graphics array (WSVGA), offer several benefits over conventional CCFL products. The modules with LED backlights have advantages which include durability for industrial use and design optimization that yield a more than 40 percent reduction in module thickness, greater than 50% reduction in weight and approximately 50% savings in power consumption compared with CCFL based LCD equivalents. To address the diverse demands of industrial display applications, each model features a wide operating temperature range of -20 to +70 degrees Celsius, a replaceable LED backlight unit and long-term product support.
The two new models also meet requirements for industrial equipment that include display devices featuring larger screens (providing more information) and higher resolution, in addition to compact size, lighter weight and reduced power consumption (especially on portable terminals and compact measurement instruments).
