TOKYO, July 25, 2013 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today the launch of 15-inch XGA and 19-inch SXGA color TFT-LCD modules with projected capacitive touch panels that enable intuitive operation. Sales will begin on August 23 at Mitsubishi Electric offices worldwide (www.MitsubishiElectric.com/semiconductors/). Initial production has been set at 1,000 units per month for the 15-inch model and 500 units per month for the 19-inch model.
The 19-inch module with projected capacitive touch panel will be presented at IPC & Embedded Expo 2013 in Shenzhen, China from August 1-3 and International Touch Panel and Optical Film Exhibition 2013 in Taipei, Taiwan from August 28-30.
The two additions to Mitsubishi Electric's DIAFINE lineup have larger screens and offer additional options for a broader range of industrial applications of high quality touch-panel screens compared to existing XGA modules ranging from 6.5 to 12.1 inches and WXGA modules ranging from 9.0 to 10.6 inches.
Highly reliable and widely applicable touch-panel solutions
- Wide range of solutions, including TFT-LCD, PCAP touch panel, touch controller and driver software, for diverse industrial applications
- Factory-installed TFT-LCD, PCAP touch panel, cover glass and touch controller for excellent reliability.
- Multiple options, such as tempered cover glass and anti-reflection/anti-smudge surface treatments, for diverse operational environments.
Excellent visual clarity combined with tactile operation via cover glass
- Proprietary detective processing for smooth, accurate response to finger movements, even gloved fingers.
- Ultra-thin, highly conductive sensor lines with proprietary TFT array technologies for excellent clarity.
Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP)
Capacitive touch is a touchscreen technology that uses two perpendicular layers of conductive material to form a grid. When a current is applied, it forms a uniform electrostatic field. The touch of a finger or other conductive object will distort the field, allowing the system to accurately track movement across the screen at multiple points. This technology is used commonly for smartphones and tablets.
