How long is the expected backlight lifetime of a Saia PCD® Web Panel MB (PCD7.D4xx)?

FAQ #100918

According to the Technical Data section within the flyer 26-435 (E6) the "Life expectancy" of a Micro-Browser Web-Panel depends on the screen technology as shown in the following table:



MB-Panel Type Screen Technology        Life expectancy
 PCD7.D435TLCF          TFT (color) 40.000 hours (about 4.5 years)
 PCD7.D457BxCF STN (grayscale) 80.000 hours (about 9.1 years)
 PCD7.D457SxCF STN (color) 40.000 hours (about 4.5 years)

The time indicated above means the operation time of the backlight until the brightness of the back light has decreased by about 50% (so the panel will not "die" but only the luminosity will have decreased). In order to increase this duration, the backlight can be switched off with the screen saver functionality of the panel.
