NEC launches Lightweight, Power-Saving TFT LCD Modules with White LEDs
NEC LCD Technologies recently introduced two new amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules incorporating white LED backlights for industrial applications. The 10.4-inch (26 cm-diagonal) module, part number NL10276BC20-12, with extended graphics array (XGA) resolution, and the 8.9-inch (23 cm-diagonal) module, part number NL10260BC19-01D, with wide super-video graphics array (WSVGA), offer numerous benefits over conventional CCFL products. These modules with LED backlights have advantages which include durability for industrial use and design optimization that yield a more than 40 percent reduction in module thickness, greater than 50 percent reduction in weight and approximately 50 percent savings in power consumption compared with CCFL based LCD equivalents.
To address the diverse demands of industrial display applications, each model features a wide operating temperature range of -20 to +70 degrees Celsius, a replaceable LED backlight unit and long-term product support.
