Sharp Sets the Performance Standard With New 4.3-Inch Industrial-Grade Display

    New High-Brightness Display for Mobile and Portable Devices is One of the
Most Feature-Rich Wide-Aspect Displays Available

    CAMAS, WASH., April 25 /CNW/ - Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas has
introduced a 4.3-inch industrial-grade LCD display designed for mobile and
portable-use applications. The LQ043T1DG01 is a highly-integrated display with
touch panel that will complement any handheld or portable device design. The
display delivers superior performance in brightness and contrast, operates
over a broad temperature range, and features a wide viewing angle; all while
conserving power.

    The display offers 16 million colors, a 16:9 aspect ratio, high
brightness of 500 nits and a viewing cone of 120 degrees (H) x 100 degrees (V)
in 480 (H) x 272 (V) pixels. The LQ043T1DG01 is an excellent fit for
applications in challenging industrial and handheld environments and high
ambient light conditions. Its high level of integration means a lower parts
count. Typical applications include PDAs, portable medical equipment,
GPS/navigation, home automation control, test and measurement equipment, fish
finders, and security systems.

    "This display reinforces Sharp's technological leadership and provides
designers with a great choice when choosing a display for demanding
applications," stated Sriram Peruvemba, Senior Manager, Product Marketing at
Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas. "It raises the standard in 4.3-inch
display performance."

    As an industrial performance part, the LQ043T1DG01 is designed and tested
to meet demanding environments by providing wide operating temperatures, high
brightness, and a wide viewing angle. The display features an integrated touch
panel and a standard TFT interface (no ASIC or GSIC required). The display is
backed by Sharp's highly-recognized quality service and support.

    Key features of the 4.3-inch display include:

    --  Wide temperature range (-10 to +70 degrees C)

    --  High brightness (500 nits)

    --  Wide viewing angle (degrees) (120 (H) x 100 (V))

    --  Integrated interface

    --  Touch panel

    "The 4.3-inch display is tested to the full range of its specifications
so Sharp can ensure that it operates properly to the edges of those
specifications," explained Peruvemba, "This display truly rises above the
current class of commodity-grade parts and provides an industry-leading
