Sharp Expands Its Small TFT LCD Line-up for Personal Audio Visual (PAV) Applications

09.Jul 2014

Sharp Devices Europe has announced two additions to its small TFT LCD line-up. The two continuous grain silicon (CGS) displays include a 1.6-inch (1.56” diagonal) transflective colour LCD suitable for use with wearable technology and a 2.95-inch diagonal SVGA+ LCD. The new displays were conceived for personal audio visual (PAV) applications.

The 1.6-inch LS016B8YUxx is a thin, high-performance panel for wearable product designs. As a transflective display, it is highly reflective (10% reflection ratio). As a result, the backlight can remain off in most cases to reduce power consumption. The 180 x 180 pixel display can also switch between monochrome and RGB colour modes while achieving an 800:1 contrast ratio for crisp images and superior outdoor readability.

The 2.95-inch LS030B3DXxx landscape-mode panel delivers 366 ppi (pixels per inch) resolution thanks to its high aperture ratio. A highly transmissive colour filter enables exceptional brightness levels of up to 600 nits while a polarizer allows for a contrast ratio of 1000:1 (typical) making this display ideal for outdoor applications. Excellent viewability is ensured by Sharp’s new wide view angle technology. The panel includes a chip-on-glass (COG) driver with an internal controller and power supply, making it easy to integrate the LCD in PAV applications.
