Press release, October 25; Yvonne Yu, DIGITIMES [Monday 25 October 2010]

Tokyo - (Business Wire)--Mitsubishi Electric announced today the launch of its 5.7-inch, QVGA color TFT-LCD module with a white LED. This industrial-use model features high brightness, long backlight life and a built-in LED driver in a low power consumption LCD module design. Sale of the module begins on December 1, 2010 on Mitsubishi's website.

In recent years, TFT-LCD modules are widely used in a variety of applications such as factory automation, measurement equipment and commercial and industrial inventory control. These applications require modules to be slim, compact, and lightweight, and also call for high brightness with low power consumption and longer operational life. With this addition to its lineup of industrial-use TFT-LCD modules, Mitsubishi Electric aims to meet the needs of its customers.

Product Features

1) Market-leading long-life backlight with high brightness and low power consumption

At a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius, the LED backlight has a typical operating life of 100,000 hours
450 cd/m2 high brightness for better visibility in bright environments
Total power consumption (including backlight) is reduced to 1.83W, which is 44% less than the previous model of AA057QB03.

2) Built-in LED driver

An LED driver is built into the module to achieve a more compact design and lower product cost
High-voltage inverter not required

3) Slim, lightweight construction design of less than 9mm

Improved backlight structure design reduces thickness to 8.8mm, which is 32% thinner than the previous model of AA057QB03
Module weight is 165g, which is 14% lighter than the previous model of AA057QB03.

4) Environmentally conscious construction

The TFT-LCD module is fully compliant with the European RoHS directive, and is completely mercury-free.
