Mitsubishi Electric to Expand Lineup of Color TFT-LCD Modules with Projected Capacitive Touch Panels for Industrial Applications

TOKYO, January 23, 2013 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today the launch of 8.4-inch SVGA, 9.0-inch WXGA and 10.6-inch WXGA color TFT-LCD modules with projected capacitive touch panels that enable intuitive operation even with gloved hands. Sales will begin on February 8 at Mitsubishi Electric offices worldwide ( Initial production has been set at 2,000 units per month for each model.

Mitsubishi Electric' s existing models, launched on July 19, 2012, are 6.5-inch VGA, 10.4- and 12.1-inch XGA modules offering excellent visual clarity combined with durable 2.8mm cover glass. The three newly announced modules include one 4:3 aspect model and two with wide aspects, thereby offering additional options for industrial applications of high-quality touch-panel screens.

About Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP)
Capacitive touch is a touchscreen technology that uses two perpendicular layers of conductive material to form a grid. When a current is applied, it forms a uniform electrostatic field. The touch of a finger or other conductive object will distort the field, allowing the system to accurately track movement across the screen at multiple points. This technology is used commonly for smartphones and tablets.

Environmental awareness
The color 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.
