Displays Dontech Inc. (Doylestown, Pa.) has
introduced its Day Vu high-brightness display enhancement technology. The Day Vu display series is a fully customizable product line that includes LED-backlit, actively enhanced displays for direct sunlight readability. Applications includemarine,military, and industrial applications.
The Day Vu displays offer a typical display
luminance of 850 to 1,250 nits and range in size from4.1- to 24-inches diagonal.Options include touch screens, anti-reflective cover glass, transparent heaters, and EMI/RFI shielding (ITO coatings or conductive grids). They also can be optically bonded using Dontech's proprietary IMO-bond optical bonding process to improve impact resistance and contrast. Also aimed at industrial applications, Sharp
Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA), Camas, Wash., has added four newproducts to its large format LED-backlit LCD product line. These TFT- LCDs include two panels in the 10.4-inch category, one 12.1-inch panel re-issue, and one 15.0-inch panel. Target applications include factory automation, gaming,medical devices, point of sale (POS) terminals, transportation, and test andmeasurement.
Features include excellent
viewability, resistance to mechanical shock and vibration, long operating life, and performance in extreme temperatures including reaching full brightness on power-up, regardless of ambient temperature conditions, said Sharp.
Sharp also introduced two small-
format LED-backlit LCDs,which can be used in a variety of products including medical devices, navigation and industrial applications such as ATMs, office automation, POS terminals, test and measurement, andwhite goods.
These TFT-LCDs include one 7.0-inch
display and one 8.5-inch display that deliver an extremely high contrast ratio of between 800:1 to 1000:1. Both panels are the first in their size class to feature Sharp's Advanced Super View (ASV) technology, delivering wide, symmetrical viewing angles between 160o
Touting a first in the industry, Samsung Electronics (San Jose,
Calif.) and Nouvoyance (Cupertino, Calif.) demonstrated a 10.1- inch, 300-dpiWQXGA PenTile RGBWprototype display for the tabletmarket. The companies say PenTile RGBWis the only display to optimize balance between power efficiency and high- performance viewing in tablets. This 10.1-inch tablet panel is capable of 300 cd/m2 of
luminance, but uses 40 percent less power than that used by legacy RGB stripe LCDs in power-savingmodes, said Samsung. In addition, an outdoor brightnessmode of asmuch as 600 cd/m2 luminance enables viewing in bright ambient lighting.
The prototype demonstration is said tomark the first time this resolution has been available for the tabletmarket in the popular

ASV also helps eliminate color shift, gamma curve shift, and image retention, said Sharp.
Due to its durable glass construction, the 15.6-in. OcularCrystal Touch panel is resistant to scratching, harsh chemicals and other contaminants
10.1-inch format. Samsung expects commercial availability for tablet applications later this year.
Meanwhile, Ocular (Dallas, Tex.)
claims that its new 15.6-inch true multi-touch panel opens up new applications for projected capacitive (PCAP) touch panels, including environmentally challenging embedded systems and applications made formultiple users to use simultaneously.
The newest addition to Ocular's
Crystal Touch line of PCAP touch panelsmeasures 15.6-inches diagonally and has an outline of 356 x 223mmalong its perimeter. The thin 1.6-mmpanel profilemakes it suitable for lightweightmobile devices such as tablet PCs.
The Crystal Touch display supports
a truemulti-touch interface with as many as 16 simultaneous touches. Truemulti-touch capabilities are critical to a number of applications such as gaming,medical diagnostic equipment, industrial controls, food services, interactivemaps and other systems that require simultaneous
actions and involve collaboration among multiple people, said Ocular.
The 15.6-inch Crystal Touch PCAP panel is
currently available in sample quantities andwill be available for volume shipments in June 2011.
Toshiba America Electronic Components,
Inc. (TAEC), exhibited several next-generation displays and technologies developed by ToshibaMobile Display Co., Ltd. (TMD) for mobile phones, portable electronics, automotive applications, industrialmarkets and 3D applications.
In the category of displays, TEAC showcased displays formobile, automotive and industrial applications. TEAC featured a high-resolution 9.0-inch wide XGA (1280 x 720)
TFTmodule for HDTV automotive entertainment applications, along with a 7.0-inch wide VGA (800 x 480) TFTmodule with a wide viewing angle for center information or navigation applications. Three other displays -- a 5.0-inch wide QVGA (480x240), a 4.2-inch wide-QVGA (400 x 240) and a 3.5-inch QVGA (240 x 320) -- were also showcased for high-reliability instrument cluster applications. A 3.3-inch wide-QVGA display, designed for rearviewmirror application, also was shown.
TMD's lineup also included color LTPS active-matrix TFT-LCD
modules for industrial applications,which incorporate 100,000 hour MTBF LED backlighting systems, aimed at a broad range of industrial applications, such as test andmeasurement andmedical equipment. Additionalmodules include two 100,000 hourMTBFmoduleswith resistive touch panels: the 8.4-inch XGA (1024 x 768) and 10.4-inch XGA (1024 x 768) LCDswith replaceable LED backlights.
Formobile applications, TMD featured high-resolution LTPS displays, up to 367 pixels per inch (ppi) resolution density, in sizes
