Letterbox TFT displays suit panel and rack-mounted equipment, says KOE
Two 6.3-inch letterbox format TFT display modules have been introduced by KOE (Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics). The Rugged+ TX16D204VM0BAA and TX16D205VM0BAA displays both feature a resolution of 800 x 280 pixels, a wide 8:3 aspect ratio and in-plane switching (IPS) technology.
The displays are suitable for use in panel- and rack-mounted equipment, portable instruments, domestic appliances and smart meters. According to KOE, its IPS display technology delivers exceptional colour saturation and image stability, high contrast and deep black levels. Viewing angles of up to 170 degrees are supported left/right, up/down. The 6.3-inch display modules feature a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a white LED backlight with a specified brightness rating of 1000cd/m² for the TX16D205VM0BAA, 500cd/m² for the TX16D204VM0BAA, and a 50k hour half-brightness lifetime. These key features ensure that display images are bright, colourful and accurately reproduced, reports KOE.
The optical and environmental specifications of KOE’s Rugged+ display modules are derived from equivalent quality levels as those used in automotive grade displays. The 6.3-inch display modules have been developed for use under extreme temperature, mechanical shock and vibration environments where guaranteed and consistent display operation is essential. KOE’s 6.3-inch Rugged+ TFT display modules will provide reliable operation in extreme temperature environments with an operating temperature range of -30 to +85 degrees C, KOE reports.
The cosmetic specification of KOE’s Rugged+ 6.3-inch display modules defines zero bright dot defects, KOE continues.
The TX16D204VM0BAA’s brightness specification of 500cd/m² is suitable for low ambient light and indoor applications, and the TX16D205VM0BAA’s rating of 1000cd/m² is suitable for outdoor applications where higher brightness is required.
A 50-pin CMOS interface supports 18-bit RGB data which enables a colour palette of up to 262k colours. Both modules have mechanical outline dimensions of 167 x 69.0 x 9.0mm, with an active LCD area of 150.0 x 52.5mm.
KOE’s new Rugged+ displays can be sourced and supplied for a minimum period of five years. The KOE 6.3-inch TX16D204VM0BAA and TX16D205VM0BAA TFT display modules are available immediately from KOE’s sales channel and distribution partners.
