This is how graphics programming will look in the future: No more "pixel programming" but,instead, efficient operation with extensive drawing functions and fonts. The advantages are obvious: no time-consuming, graphics programming, drastically reduced time-to-market.

EA eDIP series Serial Graphic

Serial Graphic Displays with built-in Intelligence!

- 128x64
- 160x104

This is how graphics programming will look in the future: no more "pixel programming" but, instead, efficient operation with extensive drawing functions and fonts. The advantages are obvious:

  • no time-consuming graphics programming
  • drastically reduced time-to-market
  • tested functions validated hundreds of times
  • unparalleled flexibility thanks to powerful commands and a variety of interfaces (RS-232, I²C, SPI)
  • extremely compact construction
  • all in all a clear price advantage compared to individualized solutions

Character sets / Powerful commands

7 built-in fonts in different sizes (see picture besides). All the character sets can be enlarged up to 4 times their original size. For vertical presentation, a command allows you to rotate them by 90°. Separate character sets such as Cyrillic can be integrated at any time.

Such as the touchkey with menu functionclipboardbargraphcentered strings...
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.
There is a built-in self-test facility for initial testing: simply put the "Test" pin to low.

Editor / Compiler for Windows

Helpful for the development, but also powerful for 1st. steps is the simulator software for the EA eDIP240-7. With that internal EEPROM can be used to define some pre-defined screen layouts. Software is available for can be downloaded here immediately: LCD Tools for Windows.
Even communication of simulator via serial interface of PC or via terrminal is possible. Thus a complete and elegant development tool is provided for free.

Extremely compact

This innovative display has an extremely space-saving design that simultaneously maximizes the viewing area: 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: a touch controller is already built in. The communication is done via serial interface RS-232, I2C or SPI.

Fast, easy assembly

Like all DIP modules, the 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!
The displays EA eDIP320-8 and EA eDIPTFT43-A do come with additional mounting clips for easy screw mounting.

3 different interfaces (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 I²C 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 display is very easy to read and offers a high level of contrast. The design and manufacture of this display series guarantees minimum downtimes even under extreme conditions!

Touch Panel

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 (max. 3 seconds). Even the essential temperature compensation is already built-in. The displays are designed for +5V single-supply operation.

Low Power - no boot sequence

A most modern technology provides a power consumption of less than <1W only (EA eDIPTFT70-A: 3.5W) - under full functionality! Reducing the backlight brightness reduces the power consumption once more. And even if the display was switched off totally, it runs within a few 1/10 seconds again. If the external components are not immediately running, then an automatic start screen can be stored in internal FLASH.

Getting started

The starter packages does contain everything to get very fast and easy familiar with them:

  • TFT Display with Touch Panel
  • USB-Programmerboard or USB-Evalboard
  • DVD with driver for Windows, Editor, Compiler and Demos: the ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY LCD-Tools
  • Cable and data sheet
  • 5 additional interface boards for RS-232, RS-485, I²C and SPI with the EA EVALeDIPxxx
