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.
Are you struggling to see your screen in the sun, only to go inside and have an equally difficult time indoors? Backlighting is a necessity for most panels, with most environments having enough ambient light to render your screen unreadable.
Cover glass is a thin layer of material placed and bonded over a display panel, with a variety of uses. It comes in any number of standard see-through (optically clear) materials, such as glass, polycarbonate, plastic, plexiglass, or acrylic, each with a variety of benifits. Glass is standard for regular TFT LCD screens; AMOLED screens with flexibility may require a flexible plastic instead. Acrylic provides a more shatter-proof experience (but cannot be cleaned by isopropyl alcohol: it will attack the surface and dissolve the polymer chains of the acrylic plastics).
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.

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.
