Mitsubishi Electric Launches 7-inch & 10.6-inch Color TFT-LCD Modules

Tokyo, November 21, 2011 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today the launch of its 7.0-inch WVGA and 10.6-inch WXGA color TFT-LCD modules featuring white light-emitting diodes (LED) and extended backlighting. These industrial-use modules, suitable for outdoor applications such as digital signage and marine electronics, offer super-high brightness and high contrast ratios, super-wide viewing angles and wide-ranging operational temperatures. Sales will begin on December 12 through Mitsubishi Electric offices globally (see These industrial-use modules will be presented during the SPS/IPC/DRIVES 2011 in Nuremberg, Germany on November 22-24. Initial production has been set at 2,000 units per month for each model.

Both models are expected to help meet the increasing demand for TFT-LCD modules offering high brightness, wide-ranging operational temperatures and wide-angle viewing for varied outdoor applications. Features of the new 7.0-inch WVGA and 10.6-inch WXGA TFT-LCD models are as follows:

Market-leading brightness, contrast and wide viewing angle
-Super-high brightness of 1,000cd/m2 and high contrast ratio of 1,000:1 for easy viewing even in bright outdoor environments.
-Super-wide 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles for highly functional visibility and extra flexibility for off-center installations.
Market-leading operational temperature range
-Exceptional wide-ranging operational temperatures from -30 degrees C to 80 degrees C, allowing the modules to be exposed to severe climatic environments in outdoor applications.
Long-life and inverter-less backlighting
-At 25 degrees C, the white LED backlight unit has a typical long life of 100,000 hours.
-A high-voltage inverter is not required.
-A circuit board-embedded LED driver achieves a compact, low-cost design.
Environmental awareness
The TFT-LCD module is fully compliant with the European restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS). It also is mercury-free.
