NEC LCD Technologies, together with its sales and marketing channels in the Americas and Europe, NEC Electronics America and NEC Electronics (Europe) GmbH, introduced a new 10.4-inch (26cm diagonal) amorphous-silicon TFT-LCD module, part number NL6448BC33-74, with VGA resolution for industrial equipment, including factory automation controllers and measuring devices. The new module incorporates the company's proprietary super-advanced, super-fine TFT (SA-SFT) technology to achieve superior viewing angles without compromising brightness or color gamut.

The main characteristics of the module are as follows:

High level of visibility - An ultrawide viewing angle of 176 (both horizontally and vertically), high luminance of 400cd/m? and high contrast ratio of 700:1 are realized through the company's own unique SA-SFT technology, which boasts high transmissivity and wide viewing angle properties. In addition, SA-SFT technology also reduces the color shift problem that occurs due to a change in viewing angle. These features enable information to be viewed from any angle easily and accurately, thus allowing usage of the display in portrait and landscape orientation.

Wide operating-temperature range - A wide operating temperature range, from -20C to 70C, guarantees operation even in the most extreme conditions.

High level of compatibility - The new product is compatible with NEC LCD Technologies' 10.4-inch standard products in relation to outer dimensions, position of mounting holes and screen center. In addition, the new module maintains signal compatibility with conventional products supporting a VGA-type digital interface. Thus, it can be replaced easily without the need to change any of the peripheral appliances.

Displays built into various industrial equipment, including factory automation controllers and measuring instruments, require excellent viewing performance in order to display diverse information on screen quickly and accurately. "Industrial applications continue to demand higher levels of performance from LCD displays. Our latest products introduced here represent another example of NEC LCD Technologies' long standing commitment to innovation in display technology." said Hidetoshi Usui, department manager in charge of product planning and marketing, NEC LCD Technologies Ltd. "It is our expectation that these innovations will allow our customers to meet and exceed the ever increasing display performance demands of the markets they serve."

In addition to the new 10.4-inch LCD module, NEC LCD Technologies also offers three other modules with improved visibility:

1. 12.1-inch (31cm diagonal) color TFT LCD module, part number NL8060BC31-41C, with SVGA resolution and featuring the company's super-transmissive natural light (ST-NLT) TFT technology that achieves display of vivid colors in environments with high ambient light

2. 10.4-inch (26cm diagonal) color TFT LCD module, part number NL8060BC26-30D, with SVGA resolution and wide viewing angle, high contrast ratio and fast response time

3. 8.4-inch (21cm diagonal) color TFT LCD module, part number NL8060BC21-06, with SVGA resolution, high luminance and improved power consumption
