NEC 3.5-inch LCD with System-On-Glass Technology


Those crazy cats at NEC are at it again, creating a 3.5-inch LCD screen that features System-On-Glass technology. From what I gather, that means that everything involved in the displaying of information is contained on that slim little plate of glass.

Thanks in part to the LTPS (low temperature poly-silicon) construction, you get a “significant reduction in the glass substrate periphery wiring and the number of connections with external circuits.” This results in “four times higher density than that of conventional 3.5-inch QVGA products.” Yup, you get full VGA. Other niceties include high luminence (200cd/m2), high reflectance ratio (10%), and reasonably high contrast (150:1).

Apparently, it can even be converted into a touchscreen! Applications include PDAs, personal navigation systems, and other similar portable devices.
