Immediately running TFT displays: full functionality from the first minute off. After the successful 4.3" type there are also smaller and larger displays available. (e.g. 3.2", 4.3", 5.7" and 7"). For operation there is only 5V= and a serial interface like RS-232, I”C or SPI necessary.

EA eDIPTFT: Serial TFT Displays

3.2" ~ 7" TFT with Serial Interface SPI/I²C

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, I²C or SPI only.

All character sets and control /graphic functions to build-up a screen are immediately available.

  • no PC / embedded system necessary
  • low power with max. 900mW (except 5.7" and 7": 3.5W)
  • no training for a new software and programming tools necessary
  • full function already immediately after power-on
  • 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
  • and not the least important benefit: a clear price advantage compared to individualized solutions

Various character sets built-in

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) display snd all fonts can be rotated by 90° steps.

eDIPTFT70-ATP: Powerful commands

Powerful commands

Such as the touch keybargrapharea, 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.

There is a built-in self-test facility for demonstration purposes and initial testing: simply set the "Test" pin to low.

Editor / Compiler for Windows

For first steps we provide lots of demos. To use those and the internal FLASH there is a editos / compiler available. It's good to define some pre-defined screen layouts and to store TIFF, JPG, TGA and GIF animations also. The software is available for free and can be downloaded here immediately: LCD Tools for Windows.

Extremely compact

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.

eDIPTFT: Quick and easy assembly

Quick and easy assembly

Like all EA DIP modules, the EA eDIPTFT displays are simply inserted in the PCB and soldered in place. No screws, distance sleeves or cables are required, thus saves material cost and simplifies 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 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 displays are very easy to read and offers a high level of contrast. The brightness w./o. touch panel is 500~700cd/m². The design and manufacture of this display series guarantees minimum downtimes even under extreme conditions! Also a long-term availabilty is guranteed.

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.

Capacitive Touchpanel - PCAP

Capacitive Touchpanel - PCAP

Additionally to the well-proved versions with a resistive touch panel currently we do provide 2 displays with 4.3" and 7" alternatively equipped with a capacitive touch panel: EA eDIPTFT43-ATC (4.3") and EA eDIPTFT70-ATC (7").

The advantage is more transperency that leads for both sizes to again more brightness and a very contrasty display. The surface is made of glass which is hard profen against scratch, it is hygienic and resistant against all cleaning stuff. The design with its black frame grants your equipment a valuable, modern optic.

An essential detail with industrial applications ist the usability with and without hand gloves. Even when the display is put behind a 3mm glass plate it may be operated perfectly.


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=).

Getting started

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