New 3.5-inch LCD Module for Handheld Products Shines Even at 100 Nits

Camas, WA (PRWEB) April 16, 2014

Today, Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA) announced a new 3.5-inch (diagonal) TFT LCD module (LQ035Q3DY01) featuring Sharps proprietary Progressive Super View (PSV) technology. PSV enables view-ability in direct sunlight with brightness settings as low as 100 nits. This saves power and also decreases heat from the backlight, simplifying the design process. The display has exceptional image performance in both high and low ambient conditions, and is free of both parallax and metallic appearance.

PSV works by eliminating surface and internal reflections in the LCD to make the blacks more black thus creating higher contrast in high ambient light conditions. Additionally, internal reflection from the metal layers inside the LCD enhances the brightness of the LCD when white or a color other than black is shown.
