Trident is introducing a 5inch VGA display from Hitachi, featuring an LED backlight to provide lower power consumption and a longer life than traditional backlight technologies with the same performance.

With a brightness of 600cd/m2, the new Hitachi TX13D03VM1CAA 5inch VGA TFT display module offers excellent display uniformity and a contrast ratio of 400:1. The LED backlight is claimed to deliver bright, clear images in all lighting conditions and environments. It matches the performance of traditional CCFL backlight technologies but is more robust, uses less power, is easier to control and lasts longer (70,000 hours), while also dispensing with the need for a high-voltage inverter.

Further features - including a built-in timing controller, onboard LED backlight and dimming controller - simplify the design of the TX13D03. There is also an image flip function that enables a display image to be flipped horizontally and vertically. The 6-bit RGB CMOS data interface makes it possible to display images with up to 262K colours. The 5inch display is also available with an optional touch panel.

The display module measures 119.4mm (W) x 89.1mm (H) x 10.0mm (D) and weighs 114g. The TX13D03 also supports operation in extended temperature environments of -20degC to +70degC.
