Toshiba displays feature LTPS technology, which enables LCDs that are significantly thinner and lighter in weight and with higher-resolution than previous generations. LTPS technology reduces energy consumption for lower operating costs and longer operating life for battery powered applications. For industrial applications, the LCD modules now offer long-life, light-emitting diode (LED) backlight systems with a Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF)1 of 100,000 hours. The series includes eight new LCD products, available in four screen sizes: 5.7-inch, 8.4-inch, 10.4-inch, and 12.1-inch. Display resolutions are QVGA (320 x 240) and VGA (640 x 480) for the 5.7-inch module, and SVGA (800 x 600) and XGA (1024 x 768) for the three larger sizes.
