TFEL displays take Munich Electronica 2012 in stride

Espoo, December 3rd 2012

This year’s 25th International Trade Fair for Electronic Components, Systems and Applications, or Munich Electronica 2012, as it is better known, proved to be a success for thin film electroluminescent (TFEL) displays and the Lumineq product portfolio. TFEL-displays, which were promoted for what they really are designed and used for, rugged displays for extreme conditions, gained a great deal of publicity and resulted in a great success with abundant customer inquiries at the show. Transparent TFEL-displays (TASEL), which combine crystal clear transparency with the reliability of standard TFEL-displays, were given a sizeable part of marketing space and message, resulting in perhaps the biggest impact on the visitors.

Mr Gerald Smid, Program Applications Manager for Lumineq products, comments: “We have a strong portfolio of industry-proven TFEL displays, some of which are exposed to the cruelest of environments, like the oil- and gas fields in Siberia, where operating temperatures frequently drop to –60 °C. People clearly want to see, with their own eyes, what technology can withstand these extreme conditions and still function without any slowdown. Also, our Transparent and Segmented EL displays, TASEL, have turned out to be very interesting to markets where aesthetics and the technical abilities of a product are equally important. I mean products, where a reliable and accurate display must also be beautiful, as part of the viewing experience.”
