NEC LCD Technologies launches new 7” LCD Module with WVGA resolution

NEC LCD Technologies today introduced a new 7.0-inch amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display module, part number NL8048BC19-02, with wide video graphics array (WVGA) resolution. The new module is an enhancement to NEC’s lineup of LCD modules featuring white LED backlight systems that was launched May 2007. Equipped with a long-life (approximately fifty thousand hours) white LED as the light source for its backlight system, the new NEC 7.0-inch module has a longer life span than modules equipped with conventional white LED backlight systems. In addition to its low power consumption, the new NEC module comes in a slim-line package. The risk of damage to an LCD due to shock and vibration is small compared to a CCFL with a glass tube structure, because the white LED is face mounted, making the module small, light and more reliable.

The module attains wide viewing angles of 160 degrees both horizontally and vertically, high contrast ratio of 1000:1 and fast response time of 25 milliseconds. These features enable information to be reproduced on screen quickly, precisely and without stress.
