KYOCERA Releases Liquid-Crystal Displays with LED Backlighting
VANCOUVER, WA -- October 4, 2006 -- Kyocera Industrial Ceramics Corporation announced that global parent Kyocera Corporation has released a new line of liquid-crystal displays (LCDs) that feature a unique light-emitting diode (LED) backlighting system instead of conventional cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFLs). The new LCD products, which Kyocera is now shipping, are designed to meet a wide range of industrial display applications, including manufacturing controls, test and measurement equipment, and medical systems. The new products are available in STN, CSTN, and TFT models, introduced initially in 4.7” and 5.7” diagonal modules. Introduction of 3.5”, 6.2”, 7.5”, 8.9”, and 10.4” modules will follow. Kyocera expects to be shipping 30,000 units per month by March 2007.
