High-brightness 10.4-inch and 12.1-inch sunlight-readable TFT displays

12-03-2015 | Ginsbury | Subs & Systems

Ginsbury now offers two new high-brightness Kyocera TFT LCD displays, the
10.4-inch TCG104XGLP and 12.1-inch TCG121XGLP. Both displays feature XGA
(1024 x 768 pixels) resolution and Advanced Wide View (AWV) technology which
enables display images to be easily seen from 85-degree viewing angles in
all directions (left, right, up and down).

Both displays feature the latest high-efficiency, LED backlights with
brightness ratings of 1300cd/m² for the 10.4-inch module and 1200cd/m² for
the 12.1-inch module. No additional components are required to drive the
backlights as an integrated LED driver circuit is included in both display
modules. Backlight lifetime is an estimated 70K hours to 50% brightness.

Advanced Wide View technology, high contrast ratios of 700:1 and 750:1
respectively, and an anti-glare polariser contribute to ensure that display
images are bright, colourful and easily read in high ambient light
environments. The AWV displays are inherently suitable for demanding indoor
and outdoor applications where optimum viewing angle performance is required
such as aerospace, marine navigation, medical, point-of sale, test and
measurement, and process control, says the company.

Neville Milward, director, Ginsbury, said: "Advanced Wide View is Kyocera's
implementation of in-plane switching (IPS) and achieves a viewing angle of
greater than 170° (horizontal and vertical). This guarantees that the
colour fidelity of the display image is accurately represented when viewed
from any direction. The can be particularly important in many applications
that require the display image to be clearly visible from multiple viewing
directions and often viewed by more than one operator."

Both display modules have a standard 20-pin LVDS interface that supports 6
or 8-bit RGB data enabling a colour palette of up to 16.7M colours. The
10.4-inch display module features outline dimensions of 230mm (w) x 180.2mm
(h) x 10.5mm (d) and 260.5mm (w) x 203mm (h) x 10.3mm (d) for the 12.1-inch
module. An operating temperature range of -30C to +80C is supported.
