Mitsubishi EOL Replacement Program

Back in June 2020, Mitsubishi announced they were making their entire range of industrial TFT’s EOL and withdrawing completely from the TFT-LCD market.

What followed from the marketplace was a myriad of offerings for alternatives from all sorts of different sources and suppliers in the world.

BUT it should be remembered the main reason customers were using the Mitsubishi displays was for the quality, performance, reliability, and (until the shock EOL announcement) long term availability demanded by industrial applications. This makes the decision for a replacement an important decision and one to be taken very carefully.

As the main competitor to Mitsubishi over many years, NLT (now Tianma) has a long history in the same markets with competing displays and the same valued high quality, high performance, and proven long time availability (many of their displays are still in the markets after 10-15 years.

In 2016 Tianma acquired the Japanese TFT manufacturer NLT (formally NEC) thus securing the long availability of NLT industrial displays now sold under the Tianma brand and the technology share together with Tianma’s greater manufacturing capability resulted in even more new and exciting displays added to the portfolio.

Regarding specific replacement for the Mitsubishi range, Tianma has developed a replacement program with either direct alternatives or even far better specifications.

The following table shows the initial Mitsubishi part numbers with suitable replacements from Tianma with more to follow.

These are going through sample stages now, we have preliminary specifications and drawings available, please contact us for more information.
