Camas, WA (PRWEB) May 21, 2014
Today, Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA) announced two additions to its high brightness TFT LCD module line-up. The new LQ150X1LG96 15-inch (diagonal) display delivers 1000 nits out of the box for superb viewability in environments with high ambient light. Another new 15-inch (diagonal), the 600 nit LQ150X1LG11, provides a form-and-fit LED-backlit upgrade path for Sharp’s popular LQ150X1LGB1 CCFL LCD.
These panels complement last year’s release of Sharp’s 12.1-inch (diagonal) LQ121S1LG86 (which delivers 1500 nits of brightness) to create a suite of high brightness products available under full Sharp warranty and without any need for third-party brightness add-ons. The LCDs also feature built-in LED drivers, which makes the panels easier to integrate into finished products. All three panels are Landscape Mode and feature an LVDS interface. The new displays will be on show at Display Week 2014 in San Diego, CA, June 3 – 5.
