24 September 2012

Kyoto / Neuss − Kyocera Fineceramics GmbH and Kyocera Display GmbH "KYD" (formerly Optrex) are exhibiting the latest developments in the touch panel and display industry for automotive, medical and industrial applications at electronica 2012. Kyocera‘s New Feelings touch panel is making its European debut at the world’s leading trade show for electronics from 13 to 16 November in Munich (Hall A3, Stand 240).

The innovative New Feelings touch panel is unique as it gives users the sensation of actually pushing buttons. Trade show visitors can experience the new Kyocera “feel“ on both 7” and 10.4” displays.

Super Wide View is a real eye-opener

Further highlights at the Kyocera stand include Super Wide View LCDs in 7”, 8.4”, 10.4” and 12.1” sizes. They are easy to read even from an extremely wide viewing angle, have excellent colour stability and eliminate grey inversion. The same technology in a high brightness version for outdoor applications will also be on display.

Another brand new product in the portfolio is the Kyocera SVGA 12.1” LCD. It has a horizontal viewing angle of 170 degrees and a vertical viewing angle of 170 degrees. This new product also delivers excellent power efficiency as it incorporates state-of-the-art LED chips and light guides to reduce background illumination energy consumption and extend the product lifespan to up to 70,000 hours. The 278 x 207.5 x 9.5 mm display can also be operated in extreme temperatures ranging from -20 to +70 degrees Celsius.

Kyocera Display integrated in BMW motorbike

The Kyocera product portfolio doesn’t just include innovative wide view products, but also versatile and attractive products with small display diagonals. A wide range of landscape and portrait displays from 3” to 6.5” can be tested out at the company’s stand.

The most attention-grabbing display on show at the stand will be integrated in a BMW motorbike.
