Industrial LCD Modules integrate On-Cell Touch technology.

Press Release Summary:

In addition to built-in LED backlight drivers and LVDS interface, Kyocera 7.0 in. WVGA LCDs feature fully integrated PCAP touch sensors. On-Cell Touch (OCT) technology applies insulation between electrode patterns directly to top layer of LCD. This eliminates separate touch panel, reduces display thickness, eliminates interior optical reflections, and improves visibility/brightness/intensity/viewing-angle. Touch controller is part of display's PCB, housed within LCD's shielded metal case.

Original Press Release:

Industrial LCDs with Integrated On-Cell Touch Technology

Kyocera Display has introduced the first industrial LCD modules with fully-integrated projected capacitive (PCAP) touch sensors, resulting in improved performance in a smaller package.

On-Cell Touch (OCT) technology applies insulation sandwiched between electrode patterns directly to the top layer of the LCD. This eliminates the separate touch panel typical of conventional assemblies. This integration makes for a thinner display, but also eliminates interior optical reflections, improving visibility - brightness, intensity and viewing-angle, as well as simplifying system assembly.

The touch controller is part of the display's printed circuit board housed within the LCD's shielded metal case. This greatly reduces this impact of external electromagnet interference on the touch controller compared with traditional assemblies.

OCT technology does not require the additional assembly and test requirements of conventional separately-integrated touch panels on LCDs.

This technology is now in production on Kyocera's 7.0" WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) displays, with 12.1" WVGA units being introduced later this year. Both series incorporate Kyocera's advanced vide view technology, built-in LED backlight drivers and LVDS interface.

An authorized distributor of Kyocera Displays, IRWIN Industrial, established in 1970 and headquartered in Aurora, Ontario, is an ISO9000 supplier of electro-mechanical components and fasteners with warehouses in Alberta, Ontario, Quebec and New York.
