Optrex Introduces New High-Performance 12.1-Inch TFT LCDs in Mechanically Compatible SVGA and Higher-Resolution XGA Versions



Plymouth, MI, May 2003 - Optrex America has introduced the latest in its industry-leading range of thin film transistor (TFT) LCDs for non-PC applications requiring high resolution, wide viewing angles, high color saturation, durability, and superior front-of-screen performance. Both modules are ideally suited for the requirements of the industrial, medical, multimedia and instrumentation markets. And, they are mechanically compatible, providing designers with a fast, easy and economical upgrade path from the SVGA to the higher resolution XGA version.

The 12.1-inch SVGA module (P/N T-51512D121J-FW-A-AB) features a CMOS/TTL digital interface and displays 262,144 colors with a resolution of 800 x 600 dot pixels. It provides a high contrast ratio of 350:1, with 300 nits (cd/m²) luminance, 50 ms response time, and an operating temperature range of 0-60 deg. C. It is fully backward-compatible with the existing Optrex 12.1-inch SVGA TFT module (P/N T-51512D121-FW-A-AA).

Applications for the 12.1-inch SVGA module include diagnostic instrumentation, industrial control equipment, POS displays, kiosks, ATMs, and entertainment systems.

The 12.1-inch XGA module (P/N T-51576D121J-FW-AA-A) features an LVDS interface and displays 262,144 colors with a resolution of 1024 x 768 dot pixels. It provides a 300:1 contrast ratio, 300 nits luminance, and an operating temperature range of 0-60 deg. C.

The XGA module can be used in the same applications as the SVGA version, and is especially well suited for applications that require exceptionally high resolution with a greater amount of
on-screen information, such as internet-enabled measurement and instrumentation devices.

Both modules are ruggedly built, with shock resistance to 150 Gs and vibration resistance to 1 G, and feature anti-glare and hard coating 3H surface treatment. Each module is supplied with LCD
panel, driver ICs, control circuit, and two field-replaceable CCFL backlights with a typical lifetime of 50,000 hours.

Pricing for the 12.1-inch SVGA module (P/N T-51512D121J-FW-A-AB) is $418.60 in sample quantities. Pricing for the 12.1-inch XGA module (P/N T-51576D121J-FW-A-AA) is $560.00 in sample quantities. For additional details, contact Optrex America.
