Kyocera Introduces New Family of Color STN Liquid Crystal Display Panels

Vancouver, WA -- September 17, 2002 -- Kyocera today announced a new KCG series of color STN liquid crystal display (LCD) panels featuring a compatible electrical interface across three sizes and two formats. The KCG062 is available in HVGA format (640 x 240 dots) and the KCG047 and KCG057 are both available in QVGA format (320 x 240 dots).

Kyocera's electrical interface compatibility provides the opportunity to design an array of products using LCDs of various dimensions that share the same interface. The results are: reduced engineering time and development costs, and improved speed to market.

In addition to sharing the same electrical interface, each Kyocera KCG series color STN LCD panel features an on-board DC/DC converter and compatible CFL backlight connector, which reduce power-supply costs by making only two voltages necessary (for logic and backlight).

The KCG series panels are now available for sampling and mass production. For more information on Kyocera's line of LCD products, please contact:
