SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- May 14, 2013

Renesas Electronics America Inc., a premier provider of advanced semiconductor
solutions and authorized display representative in the Americas for NLT
Technologies (NLT), has expanded its touch panel technology portfolio with the
successful development of nine mid-size color LCD modules with factory
installed projected capacitive (PCAP) touch panel technology. Ranging from
6.5- to 15.0-inches in size, the new LCD modules offer the increased
durability, smooth operator interface, multi-touch functionality and clear
image quality required for use in touch-panel displays designed for industrial
and professional applications, such as factory automation and test and
measurement, as well as medical equipment and in-flight entertainment systems.

The new PCAP modules will be showcased in Renesas Electronics America and NLT
Technologies’ booth (#301) at Display Week 2013, May 21-23, at the Vancouver
Convention Center in Vancouver, Canada.

“The use of touch-panel displays with multi-touch functionality is on the rise
for industrial and medical applications, as users recognize the advantages
that technologies like PCAP provide for their display applications, which
often require operation in harsh or rugged environments,” said Omid Milani,
Vice President, Display Business Unit, Renesas Electronics America Inc. “The
new PCAP modules offer the added benefit of being optimized for NLT’s LCD
modules and carrying the NLT factory warranty on the display, the touch panel
and the touch panel controller board.”

Total Touch Solution

The PCAP technology is part of NLT Technologies’ portfolio of touch-panel
capabilities, which also includes resistive touch panel solutions. The
investment in PCAP technology is another example of NLT Technologies’
continuing commitment to developing innovative and value-add product offerings
to our customers.

As part of its total cost of ownership (TCO) strategy, which includes
consistent and stable long-term product support, NLT Technologies and Renesas
Electronics America are supplying the LCD module with touch panel and touch
panel controller board direct from NLT Technologies’ factory. As a result, the
PCAP displays are covered by the same factory warranty NLT offers on all of
their industrial LCD products – a key value add for customers. NLT
Technologies and Renesas Electronics America also provide support for touch
panel drivers and tuning software, allowing customers to easily design NLT’s
touch-panel displays into their end products.

NLT Technologies’ PCAP touch panel solutions also offer valuable component and
structural options such as optical bonding, surface treatment, or cover glass.
This allows end product designers greater flexibility and more display options
depending on the end use of the display.

NLT Technologies continues to invest and develop new PCAP products, and with
the addition of the new products, the PCAP family of products is now comprised
of fourteen models in eight sizes. The company will continue to expand their
touch panel product lineup as well as develop new applications for the
company’s primary markets.
