Integrated decorative-film structure, contributing to offering more flexibility to design of devices Announcing the release of “the flat resistive touch panel” Announcing the release of “ the flat resistive touch panel ”

April 5, 2012, Osaka, Japan-Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has succeeded in commercializing “ the flat resistive touch panel “ with the integrated structure of decorative film, contributing to offering more flexibility to design of the display screen used in car navigation systems and car audio systems etc.

Product name Flat resistive touch panel
Type name EMU601GD type
Sample price To be confirmed individually
( depending on specifications and quantities)
Production start April 2012
Production capacity 20,000 sheets ( converted to 7- inch)/month

As the bezel-less design ( forming the flat display screen ) of mobile devices including smart phones, tablet peripherals has come into major trend, the same design ( bezel-less design ) has been adopted in car navigation systems and car audio systems. Under such circumstances, Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has succeeded in commercializing “ the flat resistive touch panel ” offering more flexibility to design of the display screen of devices, realizing the high reliability and visibility required in automobile applications, and will commence mass-production.

Features

1. Integrated decorative-film flat structure, contributing to offering more flexibility to design of devices
2. High reliability, suitable for automobile applications
・Humidity resistance properties: Life ; 1000 hours under the condition of 65 ℃, 90 % RH
・High temperature properties: Life; 1000 hours at 85 ℃
・Heat shock properties: from -40 ℃ to 85 ℃ (1000 cycles)
3. Excellent optical properties, realizing high visibility
・Transmittance: 83 % ( typical )
・Reflectance: 8 % ( typical ) (※1)
・Haze: 11 % ( typical ) (※2)
  • (※1) Reflectance at light wavelength of 550 nm
  • (※2) In case : Hard coat-processing on the outer decorative-film surface is anti-glared (mat processing: fender type )

Panasonic's newly developed three-wavelength semiconductor laser (model number: LNCS01MR), with its one-dimensional emitting point arrangement, allows optical pickups for Blu-ray DiscTM drives or players to be miniaturized and improves their quality.

Applications

In-vehicle systems (car navigation systems, car audio systems)
Document equipments (copy, printer)
