Sharp Microelectronics has added multi-touch PCAP (Projective Capacitive Touch) displays to its all-LED backlit TFT LCD line up. The two new panels are 7.0-inch and 10.4-inch diagonal, with additional sizes expected in the future, including a 4.3-inch (diagonal).
Both Multi-Touch displays include an associated drive module. A built-in PWM backlight driver and standard 18-bit interface also ease product integration. Input methods for the glass PCAP overlay include Bare Finger, Gloved Finger, or Conductive Stylus. Sharp also added Automotive-Grade displays for Industrial Applications (IA); additional Wide Aspect Ratio and high-brightness LCDs; “Performance Consumer” LCDs for select applications; and a competitively-priced “Value IA” line.
The 10.4-inch (diagonal) LQ104V1DG81TP01 is suggested as ideal for the most rugged Industrial Strength applications, with high specification ratings for shock, vibration, operating temperature, brightness, and contrast. The module features wide viewing angles (horizontal: 160° | vertical: 145°), 400 nits of brightness, 800:1 contrast, and a 50,000-hour-rated LED backlight.
Availability and Pricing:
One-piece sample pricing is as follows:
7.0-inch: (LQ070Y3DG05TPxx) – $215
