KYOCERA UNVEILS TOUCHSCREEN LCD MODULES WITHOUT FRONT GLASS
Kyocera Display Group innovations expand product range for sensitive applications
09 December 2014
Kyoto / Neuss – Japanese technology company Kyocera, one of the leading manufacturers of electronic products, is expanding its range of liquid-crystal displays to include two new 7” widescreen (800 x 480 pixels) WVGA on-cell touch LCD modules with built-in touch sensors: the TCG070W VLRPC-GD117 and TCG070W VLRPC-GD118.
Both modules feature a capacitive touch sensor built into the display’s front glass. Combining these two separate components into one results in a compact on-cell touch display with excellent optical performance from just a single manufacturing process. The five-point multi-touch screen controller is also included. In addition, screened circuits help significantly reduce EMC problems.
These displays are especially well suited for lightweight applications where an additional front glass would be intrusive or for applications that already feature a front glass for design reasons. The wide temperature range of -30 °C to +80 °C plus the Super Wide View 170° viewing angle also make these modules even more versatile.
The module measures 169.8 mm x 109.7 mm x 9.2 mm and includes a built-in LED driver for easy integration, eliminating the need for additional backlighting components for the display. In addition, the LVDS interface guarantees easy operation using a 20-pole plug. The touch sensor’s output can be checked using USB or I²C. A Raspberry-based evaluation kit is also available.
An additional 12.1” WXGA (1280 x 800 pixels) on-cell touch display is currently in development. Kyocera will begin accepting orders for the new module in February.
The combination of long-term market availability and local technical support make these LCD modules a perfect match for both industrial applications and medical devices.
Moreover, Kyocera is committed to the development of environmentally friendly products and works to reduce the use of hazardous substances in manufacturing. The company’s products comply with the EU Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) guideline.
