The new larger EA DOGL128-6 modules from ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY with 128x64 points can now also be operated with EA TOUCH128-2. This is a 4-wire resistive touch that has a self-adhesive back that can be glued directly onto the display. The connection is made via an approx. 25mm long 4-pole flex cable FFC with a pitch of 1.0mm. On these 4 pins 4 electrodes are led out along the sides "left", "right" and "above", "below". A suitable zero force plug is included in the delivery program.
Either a µcontroller with analog inputs or an external touch panel controller can be used for evaluation. The touch panel works like a potentiometer. The resistance of the two touch levels is a few hundred ohms. There are 2 steps to determine the print position. For the horizontal position, the electrodes "left" and "right" are connected to a voltage of e.g. 3.3V and can then measure the position value at "above" or "below". For the vertical position, a voltage is applied to "top" and "bottom" and the position value is then measured at "left" or "right".
For best readability, a backlit display is recommended when using a touch panel. The LED backlights for the DOGL modules are available in the colors white, yellow / green, blue, red, amber, green and full-color RGB and ensure excellent readability thanks to their extreme brightness and low power consumption. ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY has a wide variety of designs in its chip-on-glass DOG family. The slightly smaller DOGM series is also available with 128x64 points and also with touch, as well as the version with 132x32 points and 3 text displays with 1x8, 2x16 and 3x16 characters. In total, you have over 200 possible combinations with these products.
The above modules are usually available from stock.
