JCN joint communications network (US DoD) Newswire) - NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo, www.nec.com, www.necus.com) An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors. In Japan, it had the lion's share of the PC market until the late 1990s (see PC 98).
NEC was founded in Tokyo in 1899 as Nippon Electric Company, Ltd. LCD Technologies, Ltd. today announced that it will begin shipping samples of its new 12.1-inch (31-centimeters-diagonal) super video graphics array (hardware) Super Video Graphics Array - (SVGA) A video display standard created by VESA for IBM PC compatible personal computers. The resolution is 800 x 600 4-bit pixels. Each pixel can therefore be one of 16 colours.
See Video Graphics Array. (SVGA (Super VGA) A screen resolution of 800x600 pixels. Third-party vendors extended IBM's VGA display standard and were the first to use the term. SVGA has also referred to 1,024x768 resolutions. See PC display modes. ), amorphous silicon, thin film transistor liquid crystal display liquid crystal display (LCD)
Optoelectronic device used in displays for watches, calculators, notebook computers, and other electronic devices. Current passed through specific portions of the liquid crystal solution causes the crystals to align, blocking the passage of light. (TFT LCD) module, part number NL8060BC31-36. The new LCD enables display of vivid colors even in environments with high ambient light such as outdoors in sunny weather or indoors in direct sunlight.
This new 12.1-inch model boasts a high-intensity back-light system and improved efficiency of back-light use due to optimized design, resulting in luminance of 1100cd/m2, the highest luminance level in the class of color LCD modules for industrial use. Accordingly, high brightness can be maintained even when a touch panel is installed. Furthermore, it achieves a wide operating-temperature range of -10 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius. These new enhanced features make this new model ideal for installation in ATMs, vending machines, point-of-sales systems for gas-stations and GPS navigators.
NEC LCD Technologies has long been addressing the challenge of securing high visibility of LCDs for industrial use in environments with high ambient light and has succeeded in overcoming such issues through application of its proprietary ST-NLT technology (suppresses surface reflection of the LCD screen and improves efficiency of back-light use) and SR-NLT technology (based on transflective LCD technology). However, in cases where a touch panel is required there is often a decrease of light-transmittance and surface reflection causing deterioration in LCD screen visibility.
"Our newest 12.1-inch TFT LCD for industrial use achieves exceptionally high brightness of 1100cd/m2, the highest in its class, solving conventional issues of low visibility when LCDs are subject to high ambient light, even when the LCD is equipped with a touch panel," said Masaaki Hiroshima, department manager in charge of product planning and marketing, NEC LCD Technologies, Ltd. "At NEC LCD Technologies we continue to build on our years of technological know-how to achieve products of only the highest quality and innovation."
NEC LCD Technologies will also begin selling another three new amorphous silicon TFT (Thin Film Transistor) The term typically refers to active matrix screens on laptop computers. Active matrix LCD provides a sharper screen display and broader viewing angle than does passive matrix. See LCD and thin film.
TFT - Thin Film transistor color LCD modules. The new products comprise of a 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC31-42D, an 8.4-inch (21cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL8060BC21-04 and a 7.0-inch (18cm-diagonal) wide quarter video graphics array “320x240” redirects here. For the Croatian festival, see 320x240 (festival).
The Quarter Video Graphics Array (also known as Quarter VGA or QVGA) is a popular term for a computer display with 320 × 240 resolution. (WQVGA) TFT color LCD module, part number NL4823BC37-05. All three new models achieve high brightness of 400cd/m2, a high contrast ratio of 600:1, a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees horizontally and 140 degrees vertically (contrast ratio greater than 10:1), a quick response time of 25ms and a wide operating-temperature range of -20 degrees Celsius to +70 degrees Celsius.
All of the new models including NL8060BC31-36 will be displayed at FPD (1) (Flat Panel Display) See LCD, plasma display, EL display, FED and flat panel display.
(2) (Field Programmable Device) An umbrella term for all chips that can be programmed by the customer including SPLDs, CPLDs and FPGAs. See PLD. International 2006, which is being held at Pacifico Yokohama, Japan, from October 18 - 20.
NEC LCD Technologies takes into account the special needs of all of its target markets to create products through its own unique technology and know-how that it has cultivated over the years. It will continue to further strengthen its product lineup aiming at exploitation of new fields and markets.
