Lumex announces the global launch of their InfoVue TFT (thin
film transistor) family of full color graphic display technology. InfoVue TFT
LCDs come in both touchscreen and standard formats and feature an extended
temperature range, LED backlighting for high contrast, and a thin profile
starting at an industry-leading 3.0 mm. InfoVue TFT technology comes with
complimentary integration support from Lumex´s team of technical design
Compatible with standard LCD drivers, InfoVue TFT technology
is ideal for a wide range of applications including medical device technology
(including display features on medical radiology equipment, monitors,
defibrillators, infusion pumps, blood gases analyzers and ventilators).
InfoVue TFT LCDs provide an extended temperature range.
Whereas standard TFT LCDs operate from 0 to 60°C, the InfoVue TFT LCD can
operate effectively at temperatures ranging from -20 to 70°C, making the
technology an ideal fit for applications that require consistent performance in
extended hot and cold environments.
InfoVue TFT LCDs use LED backlights which further increase the contrast. This
method allows for much richer colors and darker blacks than available with
alternative technologies, such as CCFLs (compact fluorescent lamps). Whereas
CCFL can offer a contrast of 150:1, an LED backlight allows for a contrast of
The RoHs compliant InfoVue TFT LCDs are available in
standard and touchscreen formats in 3.5, 4.3, 5.7, and 7.0 in. diagonal screen
sizes. The resistive type touchscreens operate in a 4 bit parallel interface and
operate well over the entire operating temperature range of the display.
