27 colour field sequential LCDGTK announces the launch of a new 27 colour negative mode field sequential LCD product into the market. The new module is fully customisable and offers exceptional performance characteristics including a 200:1 contrast ratio, response time of 7 ms and wide viewing angles. It has an integral RGB backlight and in full colour operation can withstand an operating temperature range of between 0 to 70°C. If used in 4 colour mode, the temperature range extends to between -20 to 80°C.

This new technology is extremely cost effective in comparison to traditional TFT technology, and is ideal for use where full graphical display is not required. Unit costs for this product are typically 50% lower than traditional colour TFT technology, but there are significant additional cost savings in terms of R & D and programming.

"We believe we are the first company in Europe to launch this product," said Clive Dickinson, Business Manager for Optoelectronic products at GTK. "The technology is ideal for a number of diverse applications and we have already seen interest from customers who consider this an entry-level colour product, enabling them to upgrade their display technology without all the costs associated with TFT technology."
