Japan Display announces a 12.3-inch Curved LCD for Automotive Applications
Japan Display (JDI) today announced the development and production-readiness of a 12.3-inch curved liquid crystal display for automotive applications. The TFT LCD module, based on low temperature poly-silicon (LTPS) technology, enables a simplified module structure by integrating the driving circuits into the glass substrate and by minimizing the number of driver ICs, as compared to conventional amorphous silicon (a-Si) technology. The module is curved (concave), with a radius of 1,500mm. Whether it’s daytime or nighttime, due to its high brightness, high contrast and wide viewing angle, it assures excellent visibility.
JDI’s TFT LCD module not only provides a curved, concave surface, but also satisfies the requirements of automotive applications. LTPS technology, which has a higher aperture ratio as compared to conventional a-Si technology, realizes high brightness and low power consumption. IPS-NEOTM also contributes to high-contrast imagery with dark black colors, resulting in beautiful images from any viewing angle .Japan Display will continue to develop displays which contribute to the livability for the vehicle interior, with a view towards the future of autonomous driving.
