LCD Technology Overview
(aka: Alphanumeric displays) include a controller driver chip that converts the customer’s firmware to letters, numbers and punctuation marks. They are built in standard configurations such as 8×1, 16×2, 20×4 etc. The first number represents the number of characters in each row; the second number represents the number of rows. Additional options include LED or EL backlight, Wide temperature fluid and FSTN film for sharper contrast.
(aka: dot matrix displays) allow the user to display not only characters, but also graphics. The more dots the display contains, the sharper the graphics. These are available in standard configurations such as 128×64 and 122×32. The first number represents the number of dots along the ‘X’ axis or horizontal, the second number represents the number of dots in the ‘Y’ or vertical axis.
(aka: static or direct drive displays) allow the user to customize the size of the glass and select the icons/numbers to be burned into the ITO glass. Focus Displays can help you choose the best fluid type including: TN, STN and FSTN. Interface(bus) options include 4:1 mux, direct drive and SPI. Segment displays are the lowest cost custom LCD technology available.
Thin Film Transistor displays are the most popular type of color LCD module currently in use and can be seen in such applications as cell phones (older models), laptop computers and digital cameras. They can display up to 64M unique colors and operate to a temperature as low as -30C. They are easy to integrate with various interfaces (bus) types including: RGB, 8 bit, 16 bit parallel and SPI.
Organic Light Emitting Diodes are a newer type of color display technology. They offer many of the same features of a TFT, but with the added benefits of being: thinner (there is no backlight), requiring less power and operating in temperatures as low as -40C.
Vertical Align Twisted Nematic technology is a new type of fluid used in both character and segment displays that operate in negative mode. VATN fluid provides a wider viewing angle then FSTN or DFSTN and produces a true black background. LCDs can be fully customized to meet your design requirements.
There are two main types of touch screens available for LCD displays: Resistive and Capacitive. We are able to customize either technology and integrate it with your LCD. Resistive touch screens offer a lower unit and tooling cost, but limit the user to single touch applications.
