Camas, Wash. -- Sharp Microelectronics of the Americas (SMA) has unveiled its 1.33-inch (diagonal) Color Memory LCD graphics display. The 8-color LCD module offers ultra-low-power consumption, enabling longer time between recharges for small display products with a battery. It also enables designers to meet the growing demand for "always-on" devices such as smart watches that show a full array of data at a glance without needing to "fire-up" the device, said the company.
The high-resolution display – part # LS013B7DH06 - delivers smooth graphics and simple video capability, which delivers richer content than many cholesteric, electrophoretic, and other bi-stable, "e-ink" type display solutions – all with lower energy requirements, said Sharp. Transmissivity allows for the addition of a backlight for visibility in low ambient light.
Sharp introduced its first Memory LCD monochrome graphic displays in 2009. Memory LCDs feature embedded 1-bit memory in each pixel, which results in minimal power usage from the display's single supply, even while updating images. Other features include a lightweight, thin two-glass design, plus an integrated driver and simple I/F connectivity.
The LCD will be on show at Display Week 2015 in San Jose, Calif., June 2 – 4.
