LQ101K1LY04Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA) announced its new 10.1-inch WXGA LED-backlit LCD (LQ101K1LY04), ideal for computer tablet applications. Sharp technology has addressed key issues for tablets, including the prevention of pooling (image distortion) that is common with touch overlays. A 1280 x 800 wide resolution allows for superb viewing of high-resolution images, and a 160°/160° viewing angle and of brightness of 400 nits combine to deliver crisp images from any angle. Additionally, an LVDS interface helps ease the design process.

Sharp’s product line also includes a 12.1-inch WXGA ideal for tablet computers. Other Sharp LCDs featuring the popular wide resolution specification include 3.0-inch, 5.0-inch, 7.0-inch and 8.5-inch products.
