Mitsubishi Electric Launches 8.4-inch & 10.4-inch Color TFT-LCD Modules

Tokyo, January 12, 2012 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today the launch of its new 8.4-inch VGA and 10.4-inch VGA color TFT-LCD industrial-use modules. The models feature high brightness and high contrast ratio, wide viewing angle, wide-ranging operational temperatures and a low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) interface. Sales will begin on February 1 through Mitsubishi Electric offices globally (see Initial production has been set at 3,000 units per month for each model.


Product Features

1) Greater production efficiency thanks to LVDS interface
In recent years, the use of LVDS interfaces in TFT-LCD modules has become widespread due to their ability to run at very high speeds at low noise. Adoption of an LVDS interface reduces production costs by exempting the need for customers to change the interface depending on resolution.
2) Long service life and inverter-less backlight realized by using white light emitting diodes (LED)
-At a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, the LED backlight has a typical operating life of 100,000 hours.
-A high-voltage inverter is not required.
-A circuit board-embedded LED driver enables a compact, low-cost design.
3) Same dimensions, etc. as existing model for simplified, low-cost replacement installation
The TFT-LCD modules are compatible with Mitsubishi Electric's existing models (8.4-inch VGA: AA084VG01, 10.4-inch VGA: AA104VH02) in terms of dimensions (width and height) and the location of mounting holes, which means the existing model can be replaced easily and at low cost.
4) Environmental awareness
The TFT-LCD modules are fully compliant with the European Restriction of the use of certain Hazardous Substances in electrical and electronic equipment (RoHS), and are completely mercury-free.
