NEC Electronics America, Inc. announces the expansion of its portfolio of thin-film transistor (TFT) liquid crystal display (LCD) modules for mobile applications with the introduction of three new 2.7-inch (6.8-centimeters-diagonal) quarter video graphic array (QVGA) amorphous silicon, TFT color LCD modules. The new NL2432HC17-07A module offers high luminance of 550 candelas per square meter (cd/m2) and a high contrast ratio of 400:1 making the module suitable for many handheld applications. LCD module developer and manufacturer, NEC LCD Technologies, has optimized the module design to achieve a slim profile of 2.6 millimeters (mm) thick, breaking the 3 mm barrier. With integrated features such as a timing controller and DC/DC converter, the new module benefits system manufacturers by reducing their development costs and time to market. 

NEC Electronics America is also introducing two additional color 2.7-inch LCD modules. The transflective QVGA NL2432HC17-04A module features NEC LCD Technologies’ super-reflective natural light technology (SR-NLT), high reflectivity of 35 percent, a contrast ratio of 150:1 and luminance of 140 cd/m2. The transmissive NL2432HC17-05B module has QVGA resolution, high luminance of 350 cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 400:1. All three of the new products are part of NEC Electronics America’s growing portfolio of small-sized LCD modules designed to display information clearly in a variety of mobile industrial products, such as handheld bar code scanners and handheld ordering terminals.
