Kyocera,, Plymouth, Mich., has introduced two small-form-factor TFT (thin-film transistor) LCD displays that offer high performance and robust design.

Both products are designed to perform in harsh environment and extreme temperature applications, including outdoor control panels, construction and agricultural equipment, avionics, and other devices that require reliable performance in the most punishing environments.

The new 4.2-inch TFT LCD panel features a 480 x 272 resolution, brightness of 700cd/m², and contrast ratio of 1200:1. Featuring Kyocera’s AWV (advanced wide viewing) technology, this panel offers a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees in both vertical and horizontal directions.

It features a standard 18-bit digital RGB interface, along with a wide operating temperature range and anti-glare surface treatment. The design is based on automotive specifications, making it ideal for even the most extreme outdoor applications.

The new 5-inch TFT LCD panel is a portrait mode display that features a 480 x 640 resolution. Its optical characteristics include 800cd/m² brightness, a 500:1 contrast ratio and a viewing angle of 140 degrees horizontally and 110 degrees vertically. It features a standard 24-bit digital RGB interface and a wide operating temperature range, giving another option for devices that must perform reliably in harsh operating environments.
