Sharp’s GEN 8 Fab Begins Production of Large-Size Industrial Application (IA) LCD Modules
Sharp Devices Europe (SDE) has announced two additions to its broad range of industrial LCD panels, the 15-inch LQ150X1LX95 and the 19-inch LQ190E1LX75. The new displays are the first of their kind to be made from eighth-generation (8G) glass substrates.
The new displays boast contrast ratios of 1500:1, symmetrical viewing angles (L/R, U/D 85°),
built-in LED drivers, and more than 70% of the NTSC colour gamut. The panels also feature
