Particularly suitable for use in portable devices, a new 5.7-inch VGA TFT module (4:3) has been introduced by Kyocera. Devices for industrial applications are following the trend of consumer electronics: becoming smaller, thinner and lighter. However, it is crucial that these devices have high quality and resilience necessary for everyday use in rough environments. The new, extra-thin and extra-light LCD module is specifically designed for portable devices that are used in demanding industrial environments such as testing and measurement equipment, auto repair shops, medical diagnostics and marine applications. The slim and light TCG057VGLAAANN-GN20 module has a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels and a narrow frame. Its outer dimensions are 127.2mm x 100.4mm x 6mm with a display area of 115.2mm x 86.4mm. The device offers a brightness of 450 cd/m² with a contrast of 500:1 and a viewing angle of 160 degrees both horizontally and vertically. In addition, the display has an LVDS interface, an operating temperature range from -20C to 70C. The built-in LED driver circuit incorporates a PWM dimming control, which achieves a wide LED backlight dimming range of 0.1% to 100%. This is particularly useful in meeting equipment design requirements where a highly dimmable display is needed. Having the LED driver circuit built in also helps to simplify the design process and reduce external component requirements making for a more cost-effective solution, says the company. “A robust industrial design can now also be small and light,” says Eberhard Schill, sales manager, Kyocera Display Europe. “This development further contributes to making the workplace more ergonomic.”
