Vishay Announces New 128 x 32 LED Graphics Displays with Drive Electronics and + 5-V HC CMOS Level Video Interface
New Bright Red and Neon Orange LED Displays Designed as Solid-State Alternatives to Popular Plasma Displays
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — August 7, 2009 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced two new 128 x 32 LED graphics displays with drive electronics and a + 5-V HC CMOS-level video interface. Designed as replacements for the popular APD-128G032 plasma display module, the new LED displays offer designers a choice of bright red (LEE-128G032B) or neon orange (LEE-128G032-1) colors while both offer high brightness and superior viewing characteristics in a slim package.
The new LEE-128G032x LED displays have four to five times the life of a plasma display, reducing maintenance and replacement costs. With a 12.75-in.(323.85mm) x 3.15-in.(80.01mm) viewing area, the LED displays are optimized for low- to medium-level information content and are suited for applications such as pinball machines and other arcade games, slot and gaming machines, process control, POS terminals, medical equipment, message centers, and automatic teller machines (ATMs).
Featuring a very low 1.1-in (19.0-mm) profile, the LEE-128G032x displays have large .65-in (16.51-mm) x .45-in (11.43-mm) characters for long distance readability, offer a high contrast ratio of > 30:1, and provide a wide viewing angle of >°150°.
The LEE-128G032-1 display provides all the same features as the LEE-128G032B while providing an identical matching color for displays built on plasma technology, compared to which it uses only half as much power from a single ± 5-V supply.
Single piece and production quantities of the new LED displays are available now, with lead times of 10 to 12 weeks for larger orders.
