Sharp's LQ121S7LY01 TFT-LCD

Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas has introduced a new Advanced Super View TFT-LCD for outdoor and bright ambient applications in transportation, industrial, retail, medical and other markets.

Sharp said this LQ121S7LY01 LCD pushes performance levels in viewing angle and sunlight readability while maintaining a drop-in replacement for current Sharp designs. The new displays feature mountings, connectors and pinouts identical to previous versions for drop-in replacement. The display offers improved durability and a field-replaceable backlight. The display also eliminates the need to add extra backlight bulbs, reduces heat in the enclosure and occupies less room in the Z dimension, said the company.

While the new transflective LCD panel is aimed at applications including marine navigation, GPS systems, gas pumps, ATMs, outdoor kiosks, fish finders, land surveying equipment, portable outdoor use medical equipment, instrumentation, electronic signage and outdoor bingo terminals, Sharp developed this 12.1-inch model to address specific design priority considerations for designers of industrial applications. These concerns include a greater viewing angle (160 vertical/160 horizontal) and contrast (400:1), combined in a transflective display for a variety of indoor and outdoor lighting conditions.

Other key specifications of the SVGA LCD (800 x RGB x 600) include a brightness of 200cd/m? and power consumption rating of 8.5W. Dimensions are 276-by-209-by-11mm. The LQ121S7LY01 display is currently available as a demo.
