Kyoto / Neuss – Japanese technology group Kyocera, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of electronic products, has increased the backlight lifespan in 26 of its LCD modules to 100,000 hours.
The long-life portfolio includes standard modules and modules that are suitable for use in extended temperature ranges, extremely bright light (Super High Brightness (SHB)), and in applications that require very wide view angles (Advanced Wide View (AWV)) in sizes between 4.3 and 12.1 inches. The modules are particularly suited for extreme applications that require 24-hour operation over extended periods in difficult environments.
“The improved efficiency of the backlights in our LCD modules has allowed us to reduce wasted energy and increase the lifespan of the unit. That represents another trend-setting contribution from the Kyocera R&D team and is in line with our company-wide environmental strategy and our efforts to reduce electrical waste by producing reliable components,” explained Eberhard Schill, Manager of Distribution & Marketing at Kyocera Display Europe GmbH.
Additional advantages enjoyed by Kyocera’s manufacturing customers include the availability of components over long periods and local technical support. A Raspberry Kit is available for those that require a simple example setup.
Kyocera is committed to developing environmentally friendly products and is working to reduce the use of hazardous substances in manufacturing. Of course the company’s products also comply with the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances guideline.
