SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 1, 2012 — In conjunction with NLT Technologies, Ltd, Renesas Electronics America Inc., a premier provider of advanced semiconductor solutions and authorized display representative in the Americas for NLT Technologies, today announced that they will demonstrate their latest display technologies, including 3D, touch-panel and transflective displays, at Society for Information Display’s (SID) Display Week 2012 event taking place at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (booth #343) on June 4-8. Throughout the event, the companies will demonstrate more than 30 LCD modules ranging from 3.1-inches to 21.3-inches in size, designed and optimized for a variety of applications, including industrial, medical, professional broadcasting systems, point of sale (POS) terminals and many others, for both indoor and outdoor use.


Two Decades of Technology and Product Innovations

2012 also marks the 20th anniversary of Renesas Electronics America’s engagement in the U.S. industrial LCD market. The breadth and depth of technologies demonstrated at Display Week 2012 represent the company’s ongoing commitment to providing industry-leading design expertise, superior products and total cost of ownership (TCO) support for the industrial and medical industries.


3D Technologies

NLT Technologies’ proprietary 3D technologies enable the simultaneous display of 2D and 3D high-density images on the same screen without requiring special glasses. The HxDP (Horizontally x times-Density Pixels) and HDDP (Horizontally Double-Density Pixels) technologies offer highly accurate and realistic imaging capabilities for a variety of applications. Demonstrations will feature:

  • The new 3.1-inch multi-view display featuring HxDP technology
  • Two 7.2-inch displays based on HDDP technology


Touch-Panel Technologies

The touch-panel display lineup demonstrates advances in increased durability, smooth operator interface, multi-touch function and clear image quality for use in rugged industrial and medical systems. Demonstrations will feature:

  • The new trio of mid-size color projected capacitive (PCAP) touch panel LCD modules ranging from 10.4 inches to 12.1 inches
  • A 10.4-inch LCD module based on NLT Technolgies’ original surface capacitive (On-Cell) technology


Technologies for Ambient-Light Environments

NLT Technologies’ Super-Reflective-NLT (SR-NLT) and Super-Transmissive (ST-NLT) technologies enable enhanced viewing in high ambient light conditions, with the ability to support reduced power consumption for displays used in battery-powered applications operating in multiple ambient-light environments. Demonstrations will feature:

  • Four SR-NLT LCD modules ranging from 3.5 up to 10.4 inches
  • Three ST-NLT LCD modules ranging from 8.4 up t o 12.1 inches
  • Three high-bright LCD modules ranging from 5.7 up to 15 inches


Ultra-Wide Viewing Angle Technologies

NLT Technologies’ proprietary Ultra Advanced Super-Fine TFT (UA-SFT) technologies deliver reliable color reproduction and enhanced viewing performance even in off-angle viewing conditions for use in portable broadcasting, medical and industrial. Demonstrations will feature:

  • The new SFT-TFT 9.0-inch full high-definition (FHD) LCD module
  • Two new UA-SFT 10.6-inch LCD modules also featuring NLT Technologies' ColorXcell integrated color enhancement technology
  • Four mid-size wide-aspect ratio display modules ranging from 9.0 up to 15.3 inches

Representatives from NLT Technologies will also present two technical papers:

  • "Analysis of Two Type of Multi-Domain IPS Viewing Angle Characteristics", Wednesday, June 6 at 10:40 a.m. EDT (Session 28)
  • "A 10.4-in. On-Cell Touch-Panel LCD with Correlated Noise Subtraction Method", Wednesday, June 6 at 3:30 p.m. EDT (Session 37)
