New transflective displays go into series productionKyoto/Neuss, )
1. V-series transflective type
The LC-Display augments Kyocera's Series V Industrial LCDs. Their symmetrical design and mechanical compatibility allow the customer to use products within the series interchangeably. They also offer long life LEDs and - thanks to the DC-DC converter integrated in the reverse circuit board - only require one power source. Users can choose between currents of 3.3 V or 5.0 V.
The 5.7" V-series transflective type features brightness of 150 cd/m2 (VGA). A high contrast ratio of 150:1 as well as a wide view angle of 160° (H) and 125° (W) ensures images of excellent quality. With dimensions of 144 (B), 104.8 (H) and 13 (T) millimeters it weighs 220 g.
2. Slim transflective type
With a depth of 8.85 millimeters, the slim transflective type (width 135 mm, height 104.8 mm) is particularly thin and light: 160 g. It has a wide viewing angle of 160° (H) and 125° (W), and the contrast ratio of 200:1 means outstanding image quality. A ccc-board is already included.
Both products are available with a conventional touch panel or Kyocera's new glass touch panel technology. As a result, their suitability for use in mobile devices - for example, in production, measurement technology or medicine - is outstanding.
Sustainable environmental protection is a defining goal at Kyocera. The company is actively engaged in the development of environmentally-friendly products and working to reduce the use of environmentally degrading materials and processes in industry. Kyocera complies with the EU's RoHS Directive and offers a wide range of reduced-mercury LED's and lead-free circuit boards. The respective components will also be built into the new transflective displays.
