Tianma NLT USA has announced a thin and lightweight 15.0-inch diagonal LCD module with XGA resolution (1024 x 768 pixels, P/N NL10276AC30-53D) for industrial applications such as POS and ATMs. The module was developed by NLT Technologies, Ltd., a Tianma Group company, with mass production planned to start in June 2017.
The new module utilizes a slim LED backlight supported by optimized design of its backlight system. Accordingly, it has achieved a module thickness of only 6.3mm and weight of 640g, which are approximately half of conventional modules in the same size range.
Furthermore, the new LED backlight offers luminous efficiency while requiring less power consumption. Typically, a thin LCD module results in inefficient light use, leading to a tendency of power consumption to increase. However, the new module utilizing the high efficiency backlight can prevent the increase associated with the thin body and, therefore, can achieve excellent performance of 500cd/m2 luminance and 8.5W power consumption.
POS systems are widely used for sales management in distribution, retail and other industries where more compact footprints and improved designs are in high demand for terminal equipment. Consequently, thinner, lighter, and more efficient display modules are also in need. The development of this thin and lightweight industrial model meets the market need for the compact design of devices in which the LCD module is mounted thus contributing to improved convenience for users.
The prototype of new LCD module was showcased at Embedded Systems Expo 2017 (East 4-65), May 10-12, at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan, and will be featured at Display Week 2017, May 23 to 25 in Los Angeles, California, USA, in booth 1005, and at Computex Taipei, May 30 to June 3 in Taipei, Taiwan.
