KAWASAKI, JAPAN, SANTA CLARA, Calif., DUSSELDORF, Germany, May 27, 2014 — NLT Technologies (NLT), together with its sales and marketing channels in the Americas, Tianma NLT America, and in Europe, Renesas Electronics Europe GmbH, has announced the successful development of a new 19.0-inch color LCD module with factory installed projected capacitive (PCAP) touch panel technology.

 

The newly developed 19.0-inch model is the currently largest size in NLT’s PCAP family, which adapts PCAP touch panel in LCD module, both developed and produced by NLT Technologies. It incorporates NLT’s proprietary Super Fine TFT technology (SFT) that achieves high luminance, wide color gamut and ultra-wide viewing angles and is ideal for use in professional display applications such as medical equipment.

 

Total touch solution

NLT offers total PCAP solutions, that include the LCD, touch panel and controller board, direct from NLT’s factory. This is important for customers since the PCAP displays are covered by the same factory warranty NLT offers on all of their industrial LCD products. NLT also offers support for drivers and tuning software of touch panel, allowing customers to easily design NLT’s touch panel displays into their end products

 

Long-term support same as Industrial LCD

NLT’s PCAP products offer the same long-term support program, high quality and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) benefits as offered for their industrial LCD products.

 

Various PCAP Options

NLT’s PCAP touch panels offer valuable component and structural options such as bonding, surface treatment, or cover glass. This allows end product designers greater flexibility and more display options depending on the end use of the display.

Recently, the use of touch panel displays with multi-touch functionality is rapidly expanding in consumer applications like smart phones or tablet devices, as well as in industrial and medical applications. The increasing demand for PCAP touch panels continues due to their distinguished image quality, durability, and various construction design possibilities.

NLT Technologies continues to invest and develop new PCAP products. The newly developed 19.0-inch model is the currently largest size in its PCAP family allowing more data to be shown on the display. Furthermore, it incorporates NLT’s proprietary Super Fine TFT technology that achieves high density and ultra-wide viewing angles without compromising brightness or color gamut even in off-angle viewing conditions. Therefore it is expected to be utilized for professional use such as medical equipment.

The prototype of new LCD module will be showcased at Display Week 2014(#1320), June 3-5, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California in USA.

Main specifications of the new LCD modules can be found in the attachment.
