Slim, attractive and variably: the EA DOGS104-A 2-/4-line display
Specialist display supplier ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY has added a genuine “tidbit” to its highly versatile EA DOGS product family. Featuring an extremely compact design and low power consumption, the EA DOGS104-A is the ideal display for battery-powered handheld devices. The normal configuration is 4 lines by 10 characters. Alternatively, 2 or 3 lines of double-height characters can be displayed. The dimensions are only 36 x 28mm.
Support for English, European and Cyrillic character sets in a single display is one of several special feature of the EA DOGS104-A.
With another on developers can switch between the I²C and SPI ports.
Display and backlight are separated. The two units can be configured by simply plugging them together. Various display technologies such as FSTN, STN and positive and negative display are available, and they can be combined with three different backlighting colors. The backlighting options include a 2-color version and 3-color red/green/white. The design is very compact and even in combination with the backlight unit the display has an ultra-flat profile of only 4.6 mm max.
To get up and running easily and for prototype development, an USB test board with PC connection and Windows software with free simulator are available.
