RDS introduces small TFT display modules for portable applications
Display solutions and embedded systems provider, Review Display Systems (RDS), has introduced a new range of small size TFT display modules.
The TFT display modules are available in a wide range of sizes and resolutions including 1.4 inch (240 x 240 pixels), 1.77 inch (128 x 160 pixels), 2.4 inch QVGA (240 x 320 pixels), 2.8 inch QVGA (240 x 320 pixels), 3.5 inch HVGA (320 x 480 pixels) and 4.3 inch WQVGA (480 x 272 pixels).
They feature IPS (in plane switching) technology which ensures highly consistent image reproduction and colour saturation from all viewing angles (up or down, left or right). Contrast ratios are specified from 500:1 to 800:1.
High brightness, white LED backlights provide brightness specifications ranging from 500cd/m² up to 1000cd/m². As a result, the images are readable even in sunlight, in high ambient light or outdoor environments.
Justin Coleman, display business manager, RDS said, “The new range of high-performance, small-sized TFT modules . . . . will enable RDS to support a diverse range of portable and static applications including in-vehicle devices such as dashcams, domestic monitoring and metering equipment, and e-mobility systems”. The company can also offer semi-custom display options to meet user specific requirements.
Display data interfaces include SPI (serial peripheral interface), eight- and 16-bit MCU and 18-bit and 24-bit RGB. The wide operating temperature range of -30 to +80 degrees C ensures the display modules are suitable for reliable operation in extreme temperature environments.
Projected capacitive (p-cap) and resistive touch panel options are supported to enable the implementation of on-screen graphical user interfaces. Review Display Systems can also offer user-defined display customisation to meet application specific display requirements.
RDS can provide display demonstrations, sample displays available from UK stock, and full design-in support for a wide range of display-driving embedded hardware solutions.
