Kawasaki, Japan and Santa Clara, CA; May 2012. NLT Technologies, together with Renesas Electronics America, its sales and marketing channel in the Americas, has introduced two new color thin film transistor (TFT) LCD modules, expanding its robust lineup of industrial wide-aspect ratio display modules. Featuring ultra-wide angle viewing and other technologies for enhanced image viewability and low power consumption, the two new 10.6-inch WXGA display modules are optimized for use in portable medical equipment, industrial equipment and industrial-grade tablets that require increased data display and reliable color reproduction with off-angle viewing and varying display orientations.

The new devices will be on display in the Renesas Electronics America booth (#343) at Display Week 2012 in the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, June 5-7.

"Increasingly, industrial and medical systems designers recognize the advantages of the 16:10 wide aspect ratio, which offers greater data display and functionality compared with the legacy 4:3 ratio," said Dean Collins, Director of Display Product Marketing, Renesas Electronics America. "NLT and Renesas led the wide aspect ratio migration into non-consumer applications, and the new display modules reflect our continued commitment to providing high-reliable displays with superior viewing performance to the industrial and medical communities."

The new 10.6-inch display modules feature ultra-wide viewing angles of 176 degrees horizontally and vertically, high brightness of 300 candelas per square meter (cd/m2) and a high-contrast ratio of 1000:1, all in a small-profile, narrow frame.
