Fujitsu Expands Line of Standard, Wide-Aspect Ratio Touch Panels

Fujitsu Components America Inc.

Sunnyvale, CA, May 15, 2008

Touch Panel applications
Responding to the market growth of wide-aspect ratio LCDs, Fujitsu Components America, Inc. today announced an expanded line-up of standard, wide-aspect ratio, 4-wire resistive touch panels. The devices fit available wide-aspect ratio LCDs to eliminate custom development costs for OEMs and shorten their product time-to-market.

Touch panels in Fujitsu’s expanded line have 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios and come in the following diagonal-inch sizes: 6.5, 7.0, 8.0, 8.9, 9.0, 10.2, 12.1, 13.3, and 15.3. Options for Palm Rejection and Light Force touch activation are also available.

According to Bruce DeVisser, Fujitsu Components’ touch panel product marketing manager, demand for wide-aspect ratio, touch-enabled displays is increasing in many consumer, industrial, and medical applications due to the increasing high-resolution graphics and video content, which has a landscape orientation in a 16:9 aspect ratio. In addition, using a touch panel instead of a keyboard allows more product area to be devoted to a wider/larger display, notes DeVisser.

The RoHS-compliant, wide-aspect ratio touch panels are available immediately. Single-piece suggested resale prices range from $21.43 for a 6.5-inch to $73.82 for a 12.1-inch.
