NEC LCD Technologies Ltd disclosed that it will begin shipping samples of its new 12.1-inch (31cm-diagonal) super video graphics array (SVGA), amorphous silicon, thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT LCD) module, with part number nl8060bc31-32.

This new module features NEC LCD Technologies' proprietary super-transmissive natural light TFT (st-nlt) technology, which promises a display of vivid colors in environments with high ambient light.

According to the press release, the three key features that distinguish their new product are high visibility, wide operating-temperature range and compatibility. The TFT LCD module features a high luminance of 400cd/m?, high contrast of 600:1 and low levels of reflectivity on the screen surface. It has an operating temperature range from -10C to 70C, which guarantees operation even in extreme conditions.

As with most LCD modules in the company's standard industrial lineup, backward compatibility with its predecessors with respect to outer dimensions, position of mounting holes, and center of the screen enables the new module to be replaced easily, without the need for changing any peripheral appliances due to interface incompatibility.

NEC added that they developed the 12.1-inch LCD module in response to the increasing demand for new ST-NLT-based LCDs in a variety of sizes and resolutions. A demand that NEC said arose as a result of the success of the company's 5.5-inch LCD module (part number NL3224BC35-22), the first LCD to be equipped with ST-NLT technology.

"Following the excellent reception of the 5.5-inch ST-NLT-equipped LCD module, we have decided to launch a 12.1-inch model in response to increasing market demand for ST-NLT technology in a variety of LCD devices," shared Hidetoshi Usui, department manager in charge of product planning and marketing, NEC LCD Technologies. "This product will enable display devices to be designed into automatic vending machines, automatic ticketing machines and kiosk terminals placed in outdoor locations."
