Toshiba Matsushita Display Technology (TMDisplay) announced the development of color active-matrix TFT LCD modules for industrial applications that feature replaceable, long-life LED backlighting systems. A resistive touch panel can be added as an option. The LED backlights have an average lifetime of 70,000 hours or 8 years of continuous operation, much better than the typical 50,000 hours, by incorporating LEDs and optimizing the thermal design. Industrial applications can depend on components for much longer than 8 years and TMD thought of that too: the modules have been designed with a replaceable backlight structure. TMD’s industrial TFT LCDs with LED backlights are lighter, have lower electrical noise, consume less power consumption and feature adjustable luminance.
Let’s make replaceable backlights a part of standard designs for all LCDs that go into notebook PCs, LCD monitors and LCD TVs!
