RDS makes a splash with NLT's WXGA TFT LCD modules

RDS makes a splash with NLT's WXGA TFT LCD modules

Review Display Systems (RDS) has announced a 15.6inch, WXGA, a-Si (amorphous- silicon) TFT LCD module from NLT Technologies. The NL13676BC25-03F has been designed for outdoor applications, but with a longer backlight lifetime of 70,000 hours to reduce power consumption without affecting brightness.

The wide format module can be used in boating equipment, construction devices and industrial applications. It has a luminance of 1100cd/m² and a high contrast ratio of 900:1 resulting in excellent viewability, even in high ambient light environments. Resolution is 1366 x 768.

The long-life white LED backlight lowers maintenance costs, compared to typical high power backlights used in conventional outdoor displays, achieving high brightness by optimising heat dissipation. Furthermore, it is mercury-free.

Operating temperature ranges from -20 to +70, to guarantee stable operation in extreme conditions.

At 15.6 inches, the TFT LCD is the largest in NLT's high bright product family. The wide format allows more data to be shown on the display, and for multi-function displays in marine equipment, where a variety of information and data need to be viewed on a single display at the same time.

The module measures 363.8 x 215.9 x 12.65mm.

The LCD module was showcased at the recent Embedded System Expo, Tokyo, Japan and Display Week 2014, San Diego, California, USA. Samples are scheduled for September 2014.

RDS Announces NLT technologies Ltd Industrial Hi-Bright Seven and Eight inch TFT panels.

RDS Announces NLT technologies Ltd Industrial Hi-Bright Seven and Eight inch TFT panels.

Designed to provide impressive display performance in high ambient light the NL8048AC21-01F and the NL8048AC19-14F are compact display panels with a diagonal screen size of eight inches and seven inches respectively.

Both these panels feature a high bright LED technology backlight giving the screens a brightness of 1000cd/m² and a half-life of 100,000 hours, making it ideal for programs where a long product is a requirement.

The screens high brightness levels also make these panels ideal for applications which use a touch screen as this will offset some of the reductions introduced by the construction of the touch sensor.

The display viewing angles are 80 degrees all round and the extended temperature range of -30C to +85C makes the panels suitable for outdoor monitoring equipment or mobile applications in extreme environments.

The wide VGA (800x480 pixels) resolution panels are able to display 262,144 colours and have a pixel pitch of 0.21mm

RDS is appointed Distributor for Lumineq Displays

RDS is appointed Distributor for Lumineq Displays

...for Transparent and Thin Film Electroluminescence Displays

Review Display Systems Ltd (RDS), specialist provider of optimal technical and commercial display system and embedded computing solutions, announces its appointment as distributor for Lumineq Displays - handling both their transparent and thin film electroluminescent ranges.

Lumineq transparent electroluminescent TASEL displays break the conventional boundaries of display design. They combine the rugged and reliable build of thin film electroluminescent (TFEL) displays with the unique freedom of designing a completely transparent display that can be viewed from two sides providing a 360 degree viewing angle.

TASEL is ideal for high-end applications in consumer electronics, architectural design, transportation and other applications where viewing experience and product aesthetics are of paramount importance. The brightness and image response time are exceptional. The display glass, is easily customised, it can be drilled or cut to custom sizes to fulfill design requirements. They represent the best viewing experience available for extreme conditions.

Lumineq embedded TFEL thin film electroluminescent displays are rugged and reliable. Durability is proven by surviving up to 200 g-force shock and a staggering 250,000 hour mean time between failures (MTBF) for the display glass. TFEL displays are capable of instant-on performance from -60 to +105 °C (from -76 to +221 °F), with instant pixel response over the entire temperature range, and no motion blur.

Lumineq TFEL non-transparent displays are used in mining, marine, military, medical and many more demanding environments. They are robust and reliable, and usually used in extreme environments, where traditional displays cannot cope with the conditions.

Lumineq lifecycle programs, with guaranteed long-time availability, make it easy for customers to focus on their products, and keep them in production longer. Its production facilities are ISO 9001:2008 registered.

Lumineq is a new brand name behind proven technology. Lumineq Displays, a business unit of Beneq Oy, is the world's premier manufacturer and developer of thin film electroluminescent (TFEL) displays. In 2012, Beneq acquired the Finish-based electroluminescence business from US Planar Systems, Inc., and the resulting brand name is Lumineq. Together with Beneq, Lumineq works closely on the industrial production and development of TASEL and TFEL technologies and other atomic layer deposition (ALD) enabled products.

Graham Smith, Sales Manager of RDS Displays commented, "RDS is delighted to have been appointed distributor of such an exciting range of display products and will provide full technical back-up and applications advice to support Lumineq's complete range of electroluminescent displays."

NEW: In-Cell Touch Technology for Passive LCD Displays

NEW: In-Cell Touch Technology for Passive LCD Displays

RDS Announces Low Cost Touch System for Custom LCDs

Review Display Systems Ltd (RDS), specialist provider of optimal technical and commercial display system solutions, has introduced Soloman Goldentech Displays' (SGD) in-cell touch system as an option on custom passive LCD designs.

For customers looking to use a custom LCD panel in a new application then it is worth considering whether touch functionality would make the user experience more intuitive and pleasing, especially when it adds very little to the cost.

By using the existing X and Y planes needed for the LCD segments as the touch sensor, it is possible to create up to twenty individual switch areas. No extra touch panel or touch controller are required.

The projective capacitive touch will project through up to 3mm of polycarbonate, allowing the display to be sealed behind a protective window and still be backlit in the normal way.
The system is designed to provide a single touch function and the touch encoding is handled by a controller integrated into the LCD driver chip.

This new system configuration with fewer components, simpler procedures and greater economies makes the in-cell touch system ideal for a wide range of applications to include white goods, control boards, fitness machines, medical electronics, air conditioning control, cooker panel displays, heaters, microwave ovens, blood pressure monitor displays and automotive heating/air conditioning control panels.
