SMK Develops Direct Bonded LCD Module
Offering Outstanding Visibility Even In Sunlight

   SMK Corporation has developed a standard liquid crystal display (LCD) module “CapDuo Touch – Hunt” in which an LCD and a capacitive touch panel are directly bonded.
   It features high visibility with 50% lower reflectance*1, achieved by employing a high-brightness LCD, that displays clearly even under sunlight, with direct bonding technology*2. SMK is capable of doing direct bonding in-house, enabling integrated production and quality assurance.
   The new module uses “CapDuo Touch” series, a touch panel consisting of a single sheet of glass with X and Y sensors on the front and back surfaces respectively. It allows for gloved hand operation and touch detection even while water droplets are on the panel. Also, its bridgeless structure brings a superior appearance.
   It is suitable for a wide range of applications where high visibility and durability are required such as outdoor-use displays for motorcycles, ships and construction equipment.

*1 Compared with SMK’s air-gap bonded conventional model
*2 Direct bonding (optical bonding) is the process of adhering a touch
    panel directly to an LCD. Unlike the conventional air-gap bonding,
    this method eliminates the air gap in between and minimizes the
    reflection, thus contributing to an improved readability.

Motorcycles, ships, construction equipment, and other displays for outdoor use.
