Industry Standard 5.2-Inch 240x64 Pixel LCD from Optrex Features White LED Backlighting

Plymouth, MI, April 2004 - Optrex America has introduced an ultra-compact monochrome transmissive STN LCD that displays white characters or graphics on a blue background with an industry standard outline. The F-51405 Series 5.2-inch diagonal module offers high brightness and features economical chip-on-glass (COG) construction with ease of integration. It is ideal for POS terminals, price checkers, musical instruments, audio equipment, and a wide range of industrial applications including process instrumentation, diagnostic devices and factory automation equipment.

The F-51405GNB-LW-AJ module has a luminance of 120 nits (cd/m²) minimum over the surface of the panel, and is backlit by eight high-bright white LEDs (four on each side). It has a resolution of 240x64 dot pixels and can display text or graphics or both in a wide range of configurations.

Operating temperature range is 0 to 50°C. This lightweight (95 g) module measures a compact 149.5 mm W x 51.7 mm H x 9.8 mm D, with a viewing area of 130.2 mm W x 36.7 mm H, yet still matches the industry standard for 240x64 LCD panels. It has an 8-bit parallel data transfer interface, with a 5:1 contrast ratio and a total power consumption of 615 mW (including LCD and backlight).

The module's high level of component integration saves engineers valuable design, sourcing, debug and set-up time. It incorporates a backlight as well as mounting features, and an LCD controller driver with built-in RAM.

Pricing for the F-51405GNB-LW-AJ 5.2-inch diagonal module is $42.04 in OEM quantities. For details on pricing and delivery, contact Optrex America, Inc.
