NEWARK, CA--(Marketwire - May 5, 2009) - SMART Modular Technologies (WWH), Inc. ("SMART" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: SMOD), a leading independent manufacturer of memory modules, solid state drives, embedded computing subsystems, and TFT-LCD display products, today announced the introduction of its 22" wide TouchScape E Series displays. Expanding SMART's existing family of 15, 17, and 19" E Series products, the new larger TouchScape displays are RoHS-compliant and are optimized to provide high levels of image quality and robustness to support the kiosk, gaming, ATM, and digital signage markets.

The new E Series can be used as a direct replacement in designs that already incorporate the 2239L displays from Elo TouchSystems, Inc. "Competitively priced, the SMART TouchScape E Series offers a broader variety of TFT options as well as enhanced resistance to fluid and dust intrusion," said Joe Kotas, SMART's Vice President of Business Development for Display and Embedded Products, "These features are critical for improving the display's durability and longevity."

Designed with protective glass, surface acoustic wave (SAW), and capacitive touchscreen options, the 22" E Series displays are available with either a wide viewing angle TFT (~178 degrees) for applications that demand enhanced viewing from extreme angles or with a lower-cost twisted nematic (TN) TFT providing normal viewing angles (~170 degrees). The entire E series product line features a 16:10 aspect ratio, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 300 cd/m2 typical brightness. "The TouchScape E Series supports high-impact graphics while offering a range of standard sizes and customized options, providing our customers with competitive advantages for their application-specific designs," added Kotas.

Sampling now, the TouchScape 22" E Series displays are specifically designed for long-life, high-usage applications where display quality and reliability are critical. SMART will showcase its line of embedded and display products at booth #919 at KioskCom to be held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 6-7, 2009.
