New industrial 12-inch TFT-LCDs

Louise Smyth

Two new 12-inch colour TFT displays from Display Technology Ltd offer superior performance for applications that require consistent readability in challenging conditions or full-HD with high image quality and low power consumption.

The AUO G121EAN01.2 12.1" WXGA display has outstanding white luminance of 1000Cd/m2 (typical) to display images, graphics, and text clearly under a high level of ambient light. The wide viewing angle, 89° in both axes, ensures consistent visual performance and eases use in equipment such as machine-control panels, ticketing systems, and small displays for exhibition booths, museums, galleries, or similar. The operating ambient-temperature range of -30°C to 85°C allows use in industrial or outdoor settings, and the built-in LED-backlight driver simplifies system integration.

The 12.5” LG LP125WF4-SPQ1 has an ultra-slim 2.85mm profile for use where space is at a premium. With full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution in a 290mm x 170mm outline, the LP125WF4-SPQ1 features the latest embedded DisplayPort (eDP) interface that delivers a combination of high speed and frame rate, low power -- drawing just 2.8W (typical) overall -- and low EMI. Display Technology can provide a companion LVDS-to-eDP interface board, LVDS2EDP-03, to ease integration with systems that provide only an LVDS output, such as some industrial PCs.

Each of the displays features a 30-way connector that allows simple connection to the host system, requiring only the eDP or LVDS display signals, low-voltage logic power supply, and 12V backlight power supply.
