KAWASAKI, JAPAN, April 27, 2017 — NLT Technologies, Ltd. (NLT, President: Deshu Yu; Head office: Kawasaki, Kanagawa) announces development of “NL10276AC30-53D”, a thin and lightweight 15.0-inch LCD module with XGA resolution (1024 x 768 pixels) for industrial applications such as POS and ATMs. Its mass production is planned to start in June 2017.

The developed module utilizes a slim LED backlight system, resulting in a thinner and lighter body. Its width is 6.3 mm and its weight is 640 g. It is approximately half as much compared against conventional modules in the same size range.

Furthermore, the new LED backlight with excellent luminous efficiency has lower power consumption. Often a thin LCD module has an inefficient light generation, leading to a tendency to increase power consumption. However, the new module with the high efficiency backlight can prevent the increase associated with the thin body and, therefore, excellent performance of 500 cd/m2 luminance at 8.5W power consumption are achieved.

POS systems are widely used for sales management in distribution, retail, and other industries. A compact footprint and improved design are often required for such kind of terminal equipment. Consequently, thinner, lighter, and more power-saving display modules are needed. The development of the thin and lightweight model meets the market needs by enabling more compact designs of terminals, which will also contribute to improved convenience for their users.

The prototype of new LCD module will be shown at “Embedded Systems Expo 2017” (East 4-65), May 10-12, at Tokyo Big Sight in Japan, “Display Week 2017”, May 23 to 25 in Los Angeles, California, USA, in booth 1005, and “Computex Taipei”, May 30 to June 3 in Taipei, Taiwan.
