Rugged TFT display has automotive specs

Industrial LCD manufacturer Kaohsiung Opto-Electronics (KOE) has introduced an eight-inch Rugged+ TFT display module, designed for use in high reliability industrial, medical, in-vehicle, marine and aerospace applications where consistent and guaranteed operation under extreme temperature, mechanical shock and vibration conditions is paramount.

The TX20D207VM0AAA features WXGA (1280 x 768 pixels) resolution, a 15:9 wide aspect ratio, in-plane switching (IPS) technology which provides exceptional image quality when viewed at any viewing angle, zero bright dot defects and robust operating characteristics.

The Rugged+ display modules have the optical and environmental characteristics with the same demanding standards used in automotive specification display modules, reports KOE.

For dedicated human machine interface (HMI) applications, IPS display technology delivers colour saturation and image stability, high contrast and deep black levels with 176 degrees wide viewing angles (vertical and horizontal). The display features a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a white LED backlight with a brightness of 1000cd/m² and a specified 70k hour half-brightness lifetime. The display module also features an integrated LED backlight driver for images that are crisp, colourful and bright, says KOE.

The Rugged+ TX20D207VM0AAA also features an enhanced cosmetic specification which defines zero bright dot defects i.e. no dead pixels with a bright failure mode.

The 20-pin LVDS interface supports eight-bit RGB colour data which enables a colour palette of up to 16.7M colours. The TX20D207VM0AAA display module has mechanical outline dimensions are 189.5 x 119.4 x 11.5mm and an active display area of 173.95 x 104.37mm. Operating temperature range is -30 to +85 degrees C and a storage temperature range of -40 to +90 degrees C is supported.

The latest KOE Rugged+ displays can be sourced and supplied for a minimum of five years. The eight-inch Rugged+ TX20D207VM0AAA TFT display module is available immediately from KOE’s sales channel distribution partners.
