3.2" ~ 7" TFT with Serial Interface
The world wide first intelligent TFT displays
As the first in the world we do provide TFT displays with 3.2", 4.3" and 7", which are immediately running and do provide from the first minute the full functionality. These displays do require a single supply 5V= (EA eDIPTFT32: 5V= or 3.3V=) and an interface RS-232, I˛C or SPI only.
All character sets and control /graphic functions for the display and the touch panel are immediately available.
There are a lot of different fonts in various sizes built-in already. Additionally all Windows fonts can be included (also cyrillic, hebrew etc.). For vertical usage (portrait mode) all fonts can be rotated by 90° steps
such as the touch key, bargraph, area, picture, animation, centered strings... are already built-in. You can therefore create the screen layout you want with just a few, easily understood commands. All the commands are based on coordinate specifications and can therefore be applied and moved to the nearest pixel.
Editor / Compiler for Windows
For 1st. steps there is an Editor / Compiler software available. With that the internal FLASH can be used to define some pre-defined screen layouts. It is able to store TIFF, JPG, TGA and GIF animations. The software is available for free and can be downloaded here immediately: LCD Tools for Windows.
This innovative displays are designed extremely space-saving to maximize the viewing area simultanously. There is no PCB overhang and no contact pads for connectors or cables. The viewing area is also optimally sized.
The integrated graphics controller, built-in temperature compensation and integrated negative supply also help reduce the PCB size. Moreover, no additional electronics are required for the optional touch panel: even a touch controller is already built in.
Quick and easy assembly
Like all DIP modules, the EA eDIP TFT displays are simply inserted in the PCB and soldered in place. No screws, distance sleeves or cables are required, thus saving material costs and simplifying construction. This results in a saving of between 2 and 4 minutes per module during assembly!
For a standard screw mounting (e.g. together with the optional mounting bezel), the displays do come with 2 additional mounting clips for easy screw mounting.
Communication via serial interface (RS-232, I²C, SPI)
There is something to match every system: depending on the configuration, the connection can be established via an RS-232 (CMOS level), SPI or I˛C bus interface. Also the touch panel communication is done via the same serial interface line.
State-of-the-art display technology
Only top-quality materials are used. As a result, this displays are very easy to read and offers a high level of contrast. The brightness w./o. touch panel is 500~700cd/m˛. The design and manufacture of this display series guarantees minimum downtimes even under extreme conditions! Also a long-term availabilty is guranteed.
Optionally, we can also supply this display with an analog touch panel which can be used for all types of input. An integrated touch controller is responsible for representing and labelling the keys as well as for their interpretation. What is more, the shape, size and number of the keys can be modified whenever required at runtime. This permits a clear, well-organized screen layout that helps eliminate operating errors.
Device adaptations for foreign countries and languages are simple to implement even in tiny runs thanks to the variable labelling. This includes Cyrillic and Arabic.
With an extended standard temperature range of -20..+70 °C, rapid response times are guaranteed down to -20 °C. Even the essential temperature compensation is already built-in. The displays are designed for +5V single-supply operation (EA eDIPTFT32-A: 3.3~5V=).
The starter packages does contain everything to get very fast and easy familiar with them:
