NEC LCD Technologies and Renesas Electronics Europe Expand their Mid- to Large-Size Transflective Display Module Lineup

Dusseldorf, (PresseBox) - NEC LCD Technologies Ltd. (NLT), together with Renesas Electronics Europe, its sales and marketing channel in Europe, today introduced two new transflective colour thin film transistor (AM-TFT) LCD modules for industrial applications and applications requiring indoor and outdoor viewability. The display modules, a 6.5-inch SVGA (800 x 600) (part number NL8060BC16-01) and a 10.4-inch XGA (1024 x 768) (part number NL10276BC20-10), incorporate NLT's proprietary super-reflective natural light TFT (SR-NLT) technology, resulting in displays operable in both transmissive mode (using a backlight) and reflective mode (using available ambient light). The displays are targeted for use in portable medical systems to be used in the field and in a hospital or clinic setting, as well as in industrial equipment and other indoor/outdoor display applications.

NEC LCD Technologies' proprietary SR-NLT technology enhances LCD viewability in outdoor lighting environments. In the reflective mode, the display module capitalises on NEC's optimised LCD panel design to provide excellent visibility, even in outdoor daylight conditions. The displays also incorporate an eco-friendly LED backlight system which results in lower power consumption. Since images on the display are readable when the backlight is turned off, power consumption can be further reduced.

"While NLT has historically used its SR-NLT technology in a variety of small-size LCDs (4.X-inch and below), the new 6.5-inch NL8060BC16-01 and the 10.4-inch NL10276BC20-10 modules are the first mid- and large-size SR-NLT LCD modules to go to mass production, said Hideto Tachimoto, Senior Manager, LCD Product Unit, Industrial Business Group, Renesas Electronics Europe GmbH. "These products, featuring an LED backlight system, a 35% reflection ratio and a 15:1 contrast ratio when the backlight is turned off, offer customers a display that is viewable in both high and low ambient light environments."
