TOKYO--(Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today it has developed a 16:3-aspect, 19.2-inch color TFT-LCD module, named the AA192AA01, that facilitates a broad range of wide-format display and design solutions. It also offers excellent performance, including extended backlight life thanks to white light emitting diodes (LEDs), and an inverter-less design.)--
The module will be available beginning April 1 through Mitsubishi Electric sales sites in Japan, Europe, China, South Korea and Taiwan. The cost in Japan will be 80,000 yen, including consumption tax.
TFT-LCD modules with aspect ratios of 4:3, 5:3 or 16:9 are used extensively in various applications and environments today. Even wider modules are now in demand for use in kiosk displays, information monitors, and entertainment applications such as gaming. Mitsubishi Electric’s 16:3-aspect AA192AA01 is expected to help meet such needs with the following main features:
1) Allows flexible design of customer products
As TFT-LCD modules have become wider, concerns about durability have also grown. Through improvements in structure design, however, Mitsubishi Electric has successfully created a highly durable module measuring 496.5mm (W) x 109.2mm (H) for the display of 16:3 ratio images (1920 x 360 pixels). With its very wide aspect ratio, the AA192AA01 will provide manufacturers greater flexibly to create new products incorporating extended designs and displays.
2) Long lifespan and inverter-less design
The use of white LEDs enables the module to achieve a minimum backlight lifespan of 60,000 hours at room temperature (25 degrees C), making it suitable for long-use applications. The inverter-less design eliminates the need for high-voltage inverters, and the module also features built-in LED driver circuitry, both of which help to lower product costs.
3) Unrivaled operating temperature range and clear, vivid visual reproduction
Like other Mitsubishi Electric TFT-LCD modules, the new AA192AA01 boasts a market-leading operating temperature range of -30 to 80 degrees C, enabling it to withstand harsh environments. It also features Mitsubishi Electric’s proprietary color conversion technologies for adjusting or replacing colors lost due to LCD characteristics, resulting in clear, vivid colors and images.
4) Environmentally conscious construction
As with other Mitsubishi Electric TFT-LCD modules, the new AA192AA01 is fully compliant with the widely recognized Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), and is completely mercury-free.
