KOE announce 8.0-inch Rugged+ WXGA TFT display

Industrial LCD manufacturer KOE have announced the introduction of a new 8.0-inch Rugged+ TFT display module. The TX20D207VM0AAA features WXGA (1280 x 768 pixels) resolution, a 15:9 wide aspect ratio, IPS (in-plane switching) technology which provides exceptional image quality when viewed at any viewing angle, zero bright dot defects and robust operating characteristics.

The Rugged+ 8.0-inch display is designed for use in high reliability industrial, medical, in-vehicle, marine and aerospace applications where consistent and guaranteed operation under extreme temperature, mechanical shock and vibration conditions is paramount. KOE’s Rugged+ display modules share their optical and environmental characteristics with the same demanding standards used in automotive specification display modules.

For dedicated human-machine interface applications, IPS display technology delivers exceptional colour saturation and image stability, high contrast and deep black levels with 176° wide viewing angles (vertical and horizontal). The 8.0-inch display features a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a white LED backlight with a brightness of 1000cd/m² and a specified 70K hour half-brightness lifetime. The display module also features an integrated LED backlight driver. These key attributes deliver display images that are crisp, colourful and bright.

KOE’s Rugged+ TX20D207VM0AAA also features an enhanced cosmetic specification which defines zero bright dot defects i.e. no dead pixels with a bright failure mode. Display modules with dot defects are hugely undesirable if the dead pixels are in the central part of the viewable display area and easily observed. KOE’s zero bright dot defects specification provides users with greater confidence and the peace of mind delivered by a premium display.

Jason Tsai, Marketing Manager, KOE, said, “The latest Rugged+ display employs IPS technology, which delivers excellent optical performance with wide viewing angles and highly consistent colour presentation. KOE’s Rugged+ displays have been specifically designed and  developed to have robust mechanical, electrical and environmental characteristics that are highly resistant to vibration, shock, electro-static discharge and temperature change.”

The 20-pin LVDS interface supports 8-bit RGB colour data which enables a colour palette of up to 16.7M colours. The 8.0-inch display module has mechanical outline dimensions are 189.5mm (w) x 119.4mm (h) x 11.5mm (d) and an active display area of 173.95mm (w) x 104.37mm (h). An extended operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C and storage temperature range of -40°C to +90°C is supported.

KOE is committed to ensuring long-term product availability, with continuity of supply essential for many industrial products and equipment. The latest KOE Rugged+ displays can be sourced and supplied for a minimum of 5 years. The new 8.0-inch Rugged+ TX20D207VM0AAA TFT display module is available immediately from KOE’s sales channel distribution partners.
