Sharp Showcases Latest LCD Technology at ADEAC(October 21, 2005)
Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas:
WHO: Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas, Camas, Wash., a Sharp Corporation company. Sharp is a worldwide leader in Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) technology.
WHAT: At the Americas Display Engineering and Applications Conference (ADEAC), Sharp will highlight its broad line of Liquid Crystal Display panels incorporating the latest advances in LCD technology. The company will also announce its newest TFT-LCD displays for mobile A/V products and industrial applications.
To demonstrate its strong commitment to providing industry-leading LCD solutions for a range of applications, Sharp will exhibit an array of small, medium and large display modules for mobile/handheld, automotive and industrial/medical markets in its booth, No. 21.
Mobile/Handheld Display Highlights from Sharp
As the market for handheld media-rich devices grows, design engineers must meet needs for video and photographic-quality still images and text by incorporating displays that feature a wide range of colors, high brightness and low power consumption. Ranging from 2.0 to 8.4 inches, and in landscape and portrait orientations, Sharp's LCD modules are ideally suited for next-generation mobile devices such as handheld gaming, portable media players and portable DVD players. These modules also offer outstanding on-screen performance for PDAs, GPS devices, instrumentation and portable medical equipment.
Sharp's handheld panels on exhibit at ADEAC will include the 2.2 inch, 3.5 inch, 3.7 inch and 4.3 inch modules as well as a 2 inch cell phone display.
LCDs for Industrial Applications
Sharp's displays for the industrial market range in size from 2.0 to 28.0 inches and offer design engineers at-a-glance viewability, meaning better contrast and a wider viewing cone. With optimal contrast ratio in strong-light conditions, product longevity, broad operating temperatures, durability, and high resistance to shock and vibration, as well as a low total cost of ownership, the modules provide reliable solutions to industrial design challenges.
Among the applications for these modules are process control and programmable logic control systems for factory automation, human machine interfaces such as ATMs, outdoor kiosks used for mass-transit and public information, security/surveillance, and factory automation. They are also ideal for medical systems applications such as patient monitoring.
Sharp's 6.4 inch, 7.0 inch, 12.1 inch, and 15.0 inch LCD displays for industrial applications will be demonstrated at its ADEAC booth.
Breakthrough LCD Technology on Display
Also on display in Sharp's booth will be proprietary LCD technologies including:
-- Advanced-TFT (AD-TFT) Technology, which combines reflective HR-TFT LCD technology with backlit Transmissive LCD technology to offer bright, high-contrast images in almost all ambient lighting conditions.
-- Super Mobile LCDs combine Sharp's proprietary Advanced Super View and Advanced-TFT LCD technologies to enable devices with excellent visibility in any lighting situation, while offering a wide viewing angle, high contrast ratio, and superior color reproduction.
-- CG-Silicon is a next-generation LCD technology developed jointly by Sharp and Semiconductor Energy Laboratory Co., Ltd. (head office: Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan; president Shunpei Yamazaki). CG-Silicon mounts a screen and its peripheral circuits on the same substrate, which will result in high-density, multifunctional, and energy efficient mobile devices.
Sharp experts will make the following presentations at ADEAC:
-- "TFT LCD Technology for Industrial Applications," by Noel C. Giamello, Sharp Field Application Engineering Director, Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas, Tuesday, October 25, 3:40 - 5:20 pm, Holladay Room.
-- "Making Dreams a Reality for the Large Area LCD Market," by Thomas A. Spears, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas, Thursday, October 27, 10:30 am - 12:10 pm, Multnomah Room.
In addition, Sharp, along with a consortium of Oregon LCD technology specialists, is sponsoring the ADEAC conference special event on Wednesday, October 26, 2005, 7:00-10:00 pm at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI), one of the nation's top 10 science museums. OMSI is located at 1945 SE Water Avenue, Portland, Ore.
