TOKYO, November 26, 2018 - Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it has established mass-production technology for a new curved (concave) color TFT-LCD module that combines environmental ruggedness to withstand extreme temperatures and an attractive design, making it ideal for use in automobiles and leisure boats. The module offers a curvature radius from 700mm to less than 1,000mm and optical performance equivalent to that of flat screens. Mitsubishi Electric is now accepting orders for the new module.

Curved Color TFT-LCD module with newly developed technology
(800mm curvature radius)

The new module will be exhibited at bauma CHINA 2018 in Shanghai, China from November 27 to 30.

Product Features

Mass-production technology for TFT-LCD module with curvature radius of 700mm to under 1,000mm
- Efficient, stable production realized through optimized mechanical design and TFT panel design with consideration for curvature tolerance
- New mass-production technology ensures fast, high quality production with one-stop solution covering everything from TFT panel production to bonding of curved cover glass
