Kyocera Corporation, a world-leading electronic device manufacturer, introduced a robust 5.7” LCD display with an ultra-thin profile specifically designed for portable industrial devices using the VGA standard.
Like consumer electronics, next-generation industrial devices will be smaller, slimmer and lighter; however, industrial applications will still require higher performance and durability in harsh environments. Kyocera’s new ultra-thin, lightweight LCD module is an ideal candidate for handheld devices used in demanding industrial applications, including laboratory testing and measurement, automotive maintenance, medical diagnostics, and marine instrumentation, among others.
The new 5.7” TFT-LCD (part number: TCG057VGLAAANN-GN20) features 640 x 480 resolution, slim bezel and an ultra-thin profile — with outline dimensions of 127.2mm x 100.4mm x 6mm, and an active display area of 115.2mm x 86.4mm. It provides brightness of 450 cd/m2 with a contrast ratio of 500:1 and viewing angle of 160 degrees vertically and horizontally. It also features a standard LVDS interface, an operating temperature range of -20 to +70⁰C, storage temperature range of -30 to +80⁰C, and built-in LED driver circuit.
The built-in LED driver circuit incorporates a PWM dimming control, which achieves a wide LED backlight dimming range of 0.1% to 100%. This is particularly useful in meeting equipment design requirements where a highly dimmable display is needed. Having the LED driver circuit built in also helps to simplify the design process and reduce external component requirements. Kyocera’s built-in LED driver ensures a more cost-effective solution.
