Compact colour displays deliver high brightness, sunlight readability and low power consumption
09 May 2007
The latest 2.2” TFT displays from Anders Electronics will help designers to optimise the user machine relationship (UMR) while providing a rapid and cost-effective route to migrate existing products from mono to colour. Designed to address the widest possible range of application requirements, the Anders 2.2” colour TFT range offers high brightness, low-power operation, sunlight readability and a variety of interfaces, as well as touchscreen and semi-custom options.
Suitable for applications ranging from hand-held consumer devices to portable industrial applications, the new QVGA (240 x RGB x 320 pixel) displays offer a choice of transmissive and transflective technologies, brightness levels up to 200cd/m2, and contrast ratios as high as 300:1. A variety of interface options and low power consumption cross the range ensures maximum design flexibility.
The MTF-T022BHNLN and VGG243212 are a-Si TFT transmissive displays with typical brightness levels of 200cd/m2 and 160cd/m2 respectively. Respective contrast ratios are 250:1 and 300:1. The TD022SREC6 is a transflective display that uses LTPS (low temperature poly-silicon) technology to minimise power consumption while delivering a typical brightness of 195cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 150:1.
All of the new products feature 65k colour output, with the a-Si TFT displays also capable of 262k operation. Microprocessor interface options include 8-bit, 9-bit, 16-bit and 18-bit parallel connectivity depending on the display chosen. Additionally, the VGG243212 supports SPI-3 and SPI-4 interfaces and offers a selectable 6800/8080 series MPU interface.
Each of the new displays incorporates LED backlighting and offers high levels of integration to minimise requirements for external components. The MTF-T022BHNLN and VGG243212, for example, have an on-board LCD controller and a built-in DC/DC controller.
In addition to the standard products Anders can also supply semi-custom 2.2” solutions based on the new displays. The company also provides comprehensive support ranging from development kits and application notes to dedicated field application engineers.
