7.0-inch wide-format LCD modules

NEC LCD Technologies introduces a new 7.0-inch amorphous-silicon thin-film-transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) module with wide video graphics array (WVGA) resolution. The new module is an enhancement to NEC's lineup of LCD modules featuring white LED backlight systems.

Equipped with a long-life white LED as the light source for its backlight system, approximately fifty thousand hours, the new 7.0-inch module has a longer life span than modules equipped with conventional white LED backlight systems.

The main characteristics of the module are as follows:

  1. Long-life white LED backlight system. The module attains wide viewing angles of 160 degrees both horizontally and vertically, high contrast ratio of 1000:1 and fast response time of 25 milliseconds. These features enable information to be reproduced on screen quickly, precisely and without stress. By incorporating highly luminescent, highly efficient white LEDs into the backlight system, NEC has been able to reduce power consumption in the new module by more than 30%.
  2. High levels of visibility. The module attains wide viewing angles of 160 degrees both horizontally and vertically, high contrast ratio of 1000:1 and fast response time of 25 milliseconds. These features enable information to be reproduced on screen quickly, precisely and without stress.
  3. Wide operating-temperature range. A wide operating temperature range, from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius, guarantees operation even in the most extreme conditions.
