Sharp Expands LED Backlit Display Line with New Multi-media Displays

sharp-50-inch-tft-lcd-resistive-touch-panel-lq050w1la0a-smallAt the Society for Information Display’s (SID’s) Display Week 2009 conference in San Antonio, TX, Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA) announced an expansion to its LED-backlit and touch screen display product lines. Two new TFT-LCDs – one 5.0-inch panel with resistive touch and one 7.0-inch panel – deliver LED backlighting rated at 50,000 hours of operation. Additionally, both panels feature built-in LED drivers, saving engineers time, effort, and expense.

These two landscape-mode, low-reflection panels incorporate high-performance color filters for increased brightness and wider color gamut. The LEDs also deliver high color rendering and energy efficiency. The crisp, vibrant images that result make both displays ideal for multi-media applications.

“Sharp’s years of experience in developing LCDs, combined with the benefits of LED backlighting, continues to enable new horizons for industrial design,” said Dave Hagan, LCD Product Manager, SMA. “Engineers can build display-based products that are longer-life and more environmentally friendly, without having to deal with many of yesterday’s design challenges. This keeps development focused on creating amazing visual experiences.”

Sharp 5.0-inch TFT-LCD Resistive Touch Panel (LQ050W1LA0A)

The 5.0-inch TFT-LCD Resistive Touch Panel (LQ050W1LA0A)

This new Sharp 5.0-inch landscape-mode panel incorporates a four-wire resistive touch panel. Fine pixel pitch makes this panel ideal for applications such as GPS and mapping, as well as instrumentation applications like oscilloscopes. Graphics and text can be displayed on a 1024 x 3 x 600 dots panel with 262,144 colors using an LVDS (Low Voltage Differential Signaling) interface that supplies +3.3V DC for TFT-LCD panel driving and backlight operation.
