Toshiba announces Industrial LCD Panels incorporating LED Backlight Systems with 100,000 Hour MTBF3

Toshiba Mobile Display has announced the development of a new color active-matrix thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) module lineup for industrial applications. The new display modules incorporate light-emitting diode (LED) backlighting systems offering an MTBF3 of 100,000 hours. The modules are designed to satisfy the requirements of a broad range of industrial applications, such as test and measurement equipment, medical equipment, mobile computing devices and more, utilizing the latest LED backlight technology. Compared to CCFL (cold-cathode fluorescent lamp) backlit displays, LED-backlit displays feature superior characteristics such as lower electromagnetic noise and lower power consumption, and offer a wider adjustable luminance range.

The mercury-free1 LED-backlit displays also reduce environmental impact, in terms of both material content and energy consumption. The modules have been designed with a replaceable backlight structure to accommodate product longevity requirements encountered in some harsh industrial environments. The series includes eight new LCD products, available in four screen sizes (5.7-inch, 8.4-inch, 10.4-inch, and 12.1-inch).
