2015-12-24 Mitsubishi Electric to Launch Color TFT-LCD Modules With Projected Capacitive Touch Panels for Wide Industrial Application

TOKYO, December 24, 2015 – Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced
today the coming launch of two seven-inch WVGA color TFT-LCD modules with projected
capacitive touch panels with up to five millimeter-thick cover glass. Sample sales will
begin on January 5 through Mitsubishi Electric offices worldwide.


The touch panel modules with extra-thick cover glass are expected to meet increasing
industrial demands for thick cover glass, operation with gloves, multi-touch sensing, and
accurate sensing even when the screen is wet. The combination of these cutting-edge
touch capabilities and Mitsubishi’s proven TFT-LCD technologies will accommodate
diverse applications and installations.
 

Product Features
1) Projected capacitive touch panels offering top-level operability for diverse
industrial uses
- Thick, five-millimeter cover glass withstands rugged usage
- Ten-point touch operation with accurate sensing
- High-level operability, even with gloves or wet screen

2) Total touch-panel solution
- One-stop solution for TFT-LCD, touch panel and touch-control board
- Optional optical bonding (resin bonding of TFT-LCD module, touch-panel sensor and
cover glass) for clearer images in bright environments, tempered cover glass and
anti-reflection/anti-smudge surface treatment for wider application
- Factory-installed TFT-LCD, PCAP touch panel, cover glass and touch controller for
excellent reliability

Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP)
Capacitive touch is a touch screen 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 distorts the field,
allowing the system to accurately track movement across the screen at multiple points.
This technology is used commonly for smartphones and tablets.
