For the first week of 2017, CDTech has released the S029GQ03NS bar type model which, as the name gives away, a bar type (wide form factor) TFT LCD. Featuring an unusual 8:3 aspect ratio, this screen’s small form factor has a standard relatively average 117.85 PPI making it ideal for reliable moderate to low resolution display applications. Additonally, the wide range of operating temperatures makes for an equally wide range of applications worldwide.
The LQ047K3SX06 and LS047T1SC02 are both very popular panels for use in products such as Apple’s iPhone 6. These are 4.7″ TFT LCD screens manufactured by Sharp featuring a 314 PPI (a relatively high pixel density), 16:9 display designed for use in mobile phones. These screens come with embedded capacitive touch capabilities to make your display solution experience as easy to set-up for the manufacturer as possible, and as easy to interface with on the user end once your product is complete.
A series of previously unavailable display panels have recently become available for purchase. These are high quality TFT modules in small sizes perfect for virtual reality, smart phones, and small tablets.
This hard to find panel is widely used for tablet devices. Its built in powerful white backlight and wide aspect ratio make for a comfortable quality viewing experience. Although still currently in production, it is hard to find in the market due to its widespread usage and tendency to sell quickly. For more details, read below! Continue reading
The LQ047K3SX06 and LS047T1SC02 are 4.7″ panels made and manufactured by SHARP. Their size coupled with their portrait type design makes them especially useful in applications requiring portability such as mobile computing and cell phones.
The SHARP LQ084V3DG02 is an 8.4″ normally white transmissive panel. Mass production for this panel began late in 2008, and is currently reaching its end-of-life phase. It is very hard to find and is in high demand, as it features a wide range of enhancements allowing for use in many industrial applications.
- Kiosk displays
- Automotive displays
- Marine/Aviation displays
- Military displays
- Hand-held Devices
- Commercial Digital Signage
All panels listed below feature 1000 cd/m2, making them ideal for a variety of high ambient light applications, useful both indoor and outdoor.
Eleven thousand two hundred sixty LQ070Y5DE01 panels became available for purchase this week. This discontinued panel is still a popular choice in the automotive industry, as its high-reliability and sturdy frame helps its reliability in high vibration environments such as cars. Its moderate pixel density allows for high visibility, which coupled with its 65° viewing angle provides a low-distraction environment (direct light from the screen will find it difficult to reach the driver’s eyes, unless directly looked at).
Available in large quantities this week is the LQ043T1DG01 by SHARP. SmarterGlass currently has 9,600 panels available, though the last shipment from manufacturer was in first quarter of 2013. This is a popular panel particularly in mobile navigation and GPS units, but can be utilized for any small-display applications in industry, automotive, medical, or aviary applications.
Mitsubishi developed the AA192AA01 for mass production in early 2010 as a bar panel, typically for use in the automotive industry.
The special viewing angle is designed for use in cars, as it is visible from 80° from above, below and from the right; the viewing angle from the left is only 60° however, so that the driver of the vehicle will be distinctly less able to view the screen, providing a safer driving environment (fewer distractions).
