NEC LCD Technologies' 21.3 Inch UXGA TFT LCD

NEC LCD Technologies, Ltd. today announced that shipments of the 21.3 inch UXGA TFT (Thin Film Transistor) color LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) module, part number ‘NL160120BC27-02’, will commence October 2003. This module incorporates NEC LCD Technology’s own Super Advanced Super Fine Technology (SA-SFT).

Realizing a viewing angle range of 170 degrees and UXGA resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels the main features of this new module are as follows;

(1) High resolution achieved through an ultra wide color gamut of 72% of NTSC, brightness of 250 cd/m2, and a high contrast of 500:1.
(2) Adjustment of gamma characteristics enabled by writing the 10 bit internal LUT (Look up Table).
(3) Compact frame structure enabling 87.5% screen share.
Recently in the market for monitors for CAD and CG use there is an ever increasing need, in addition to high resolution, to achieve realistic reproduction of color, and wide angle viewing that realizes uniform viewing from every viewing angle.

NEC LCD Technologies’ Super Fine Technology (SFT), based upon in-plane switching (IPS) ultra-wide viewing angle technology, is one of NEC’s core LCD technologies. Since introducing its SFT technology, NEC LCD Technologies has made continual strides to improve its feature set. Each generation has resulted in further evolution of features.

SFT to Advanced SFT (A-SFT): NEC succeeded in increasing module response time two-fold and minimizing color shift when changing viewing direction.
A-SFT to SA-SFT: NEC substantially improved panel transmissivity enabling reductions in power consumption and raising of brightness levels.

NEC LCD Technologies is committed to developing TFT LCD solutions designed to meet the requirements of industrial and high-value added display applications.
