NKK Switches Announces New LCD Display

Wider Viewing Area Improves Functionality of SMARTSWITCH(tm)

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (May 24, 2004) - NKK Switches, a leader in the design and manufacturing of electromechanical switches, introduces the small STN LCD display complementing the fully programmable IS Series SMARTSWITCH(tm).

The new liquid crystal display provides a wide, high-contrast viewing area of 13.9 X 10.6 mm with a 36 X 24 pixel resolution to maximize clarity. As one of the industry's smallest dot matrix LCD displays, NKK Switches' LCD display ideally suits compact electronic devices that require the display of graphics, text or moving images in tight-fitting locations.

Moreover, NKK Switches' LCD display offers more functionality than a 7-segment display. It is well suited for use in 1U rack mount units and in applications where 7-segment displays and LED matrices do not provide enough information.

The LCD display is available with straight PC terminals and features multi-color LED backlighting with standard or super bright options. In addition, NKK now offers LED with RGB technology.

At, engineers are able to prototype the LCD display online. In this virtual environment, engineers can visualize ideas, experiment with different layout designs, validate and test programs, and download programs to development kits.

A leading designer and producer of electromechanical switches, NKK Switches offers one of the industry's most extensive selections of illuminated, process sealed, miniature, specialty and surface mount switches. The company manufactures more than three million toggle, rocker, pushbutton, slide, rotary, DIP rotary, keypad and keylock switches.
