NEC LCD Technologies to Further Enhance ST-NLT Lineup
Through Launch of Four New TFT LCD Modules
Tokyo, March 8, 2007 --- NEC LCD Technologies, Ltd. today announced that it will begin successive shipment of four new amorphous silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) samples by the end of April 2007. The new products comprise of a 15.0-inch (38cm-diagonal) extended graphics array (XGA) TFT LCD module, part number NL10276BC30-18C, a 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) extended graphics array (XGA) TFT LCD module, part number NL10276BC24-13C, and two 10.4-inch (26cm-diagonal) video graphics array (VGA) TFT LCD modules, part numbers NL6448BC33-63C and NL6448BC33-64C.
All four new LCD modules feature NEC LCD Technologies’ proprietary super-transmissive natural light TFT (ST-NLT) technology that achieves display of vivid colors in environments with high ambient light. In addition, the models support wide operating temperature ranges of either -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius or -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius. These new and enhanced features make the new models ideal for installation in automated teller machines, automated ticket machines, automatic vending machines, and point-of-sales systems for gas stations.
Since the launch of its 5.5-inch TFT LCD module, part number NL3234BC35-22, featuring ST-NLT technology in April 2005, NEC LCD Technologies has worked to expand its ST-NLT product lineup. Accordingly, four new products have been launched since 2005 to meet market demand for display of vivid colors even under extremely bright outside light, which is an ongoing issue with conventional electronic display devices. However, market demand for diversified ST-NLT-based products continues to increase along with market expansion.
“The addition of these four new sophisticated models will boost NEC LCD Technologies’ competitive edge in a market of ever-increasing and diversified needs,” said Masaaki Hiroshima, Product Planning Department Manager at NEC LCD Technologies. “Our unmatched product lineup is now 9-models strong, ranging in size from 5.5 to 15.0 inches in six different sizes with QVGA and XGA resolutions, enabling us to provide a premium range of products to an even broader range of customers worldwide.”
NEC LCD Technologies remains committed to enhancing its lineup of LCDs adopting ST-NLT technology to respond to an even broader range of industrial applications and environmental conditions.
All of the new models will be displayed at Display
2007, which is being held from April 11-13 in Tokyo Big Sight, Japan.
