Kyocera's new line of LCDs

Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corp. has announced that its global parent Kyocera Corp. has released a new line of LCDs that feature a unique LED backlighting system instead of conventional cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs).

The new LCD products are designed to meet a wide range of industrial display applications including manufacturing controls, test and measurement equipment, and medical systems. The LCDs are available in STN, CSTN and TFT models, initially in 4.7-inch and 5.7-inch diagonal modules. Introduction of 3.5-, 6.2-, 7.5-, 8.9- and 10.4-inch modules will follow. Kyocera expects to ship 30,000 units per month by March 2007.

The LCDs feature 3/5/12Vdc operation and reduced or eliminated EMI (requires no inverter). They are also said to provide faster start-up in low-temperature environments and luminance control via current control to further reduce power consumption and extend battery life. The environmentally-friendly LCDs are Pb-free and Hg-free.

The new line-up includes a 5.7-inch QVGA CSTN transmissive, 5.7-inch QVGA TFT transmissive, 4.7-inch QVGA CSTN transmissive and 4.7-inch QVGA CSTN transflective.

In quantities of 1,000, suggested retail pricing is as follows:

  • $141 for the 5.7-inch QVGA CSTN transmissive

  • $200 for the 5.7-inch QVGA TFT transmissive

  • $112 for the 4.7-inch QVGA CSTN transmissive

  • $127 for the 4.7-inch QVGA CSTN transflective
