Extended temperature range TFTs added to display portfolio

04-10-2021 | GTK | Subs & Systems

GTK has added four new TFT displays with extended operating temperature ranges to its comprehensive portfolio of display solutions. The new displays comprise three IPS TFT panels, with sizes at 4.3", 5" and 7" sizes, as well as a standard TN panel at 7". In addition to their enhanced operating temperatures, several new displays offer high-powered backlights that give excellent sunlight readability. All of these are very popular sizes and can be employed in various product applications and vertical markets.

Clive Dickinson, business manager for Displays at GTK, commented: "We already have some ultra-wide displays with extended temperature performance, but these new sizes are much more mainstream and lend themselves to so many different applications. A typical TFT display can operate between -20C to 70c; however, these new products will operate between -30c to 85C.

"Examples of vertical markets where this extra bandwidth is needed include marine electronics, EV charging, access control, external kiosks, ticketing and transport. We can offer all the usual customisation options for these new additions, including OCA bonding, touchscreens, and extended backlights."

The company’s technical experts can support OEMs with new product designs, including selecting the right display, customisation and connectivity.
