New Vishay Telefunken Four-Digit Display Provides High Visibility Under Harsh Lighting Conditions
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA-June 29, 2001-A new four-digit clock display that maintains superior luminous intensity even under direct lighting has been announced by Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE VSH).
With a typical luminous intensity of 4 mcd per segment at 10 mA, and a 10-mm digit height, the new Vishay Telefunken TDCG1050 maintains full visibility from a distance of up to 7 m. To further increase visibility, the device features a green emission color, a dark surface, untinted segments, and an active colon between the second and third digits.
The TDCG1050 provides a common anode circuitry and is operational from -25°C to 85°C. For applications requiring alternate design needs, floating dot point, common cathode, or multiplex mode versions are available.
A compact 14-mm by 40-mm design and slim, 7-mm height profile makes the TDCG1050 suitable for a wide range of applications, including video, audio, and TV products, elevators, temperature displays, medical instrumentation, and balance displays.
The TDCG1050 is the first device in a new high-end display series from Vishay built on leading-edge AllnGaP and GaN technologies. These high-efficiency, high-visibility components will increase the choices available to designers for any display application where maximum performance is required.
Samples and production quantities of the TDCG1050 clock display are available now, with lead times of six to eight weeks for larger orders.
