KYOCERA Mass-Produces New Transflective LCD Displays
Vancouver, WA, December 2, 2008 – Kyocera is now mass-producing a new transflective 5.7” VGA thin-film transistor (TFT) LCD module. The display produces images by reflecting ambient light or using the onboard backlight system in low ambient light conditions. Reflecting ambient light reduces power consumption and offers excellent viewability, especially in direct sunlight. The new LCD’s brilliant colors and high contrast, typical of Kyocera products, make it truly stand out.
Slim Design, Strong Performance
Kyocera’s new transflective LCD module features a slimmer, thinner design suitable for handheld or portable products. This new model has the same electrical interface as Kyocera’s popular V-Series modules, but is a compact 135mm wide x 104.8mm high x 8.85mm thick. It also features a long-life LED backlight and onboard constant current circuit. With its integrated DC-DC converter, a single 3.3V or 5.0V power source is sufficient for full functionality.
The new transflective LCD is ideal for displaying static images or full-motion video, with a wide viewing angle of 125°H x 160°W, 200 cd/m2 luminance, 150:1 contrast ratio and 30-millisecond response time. Typical applications include test and measurement, medical, POS/ATM, and avionics equipment. It is also available with a built-in four-wire resistive touch panel.
