Our parallel displays come in many different sizes ranging from 1 lines x 8 characters to 4 lines x 40 characters.
Alphanumeric or high-speed Graphic LCD
Color LCD options available are white, yellow-green, amber, red, green and blue
Can operate in temperatures from 0 to +50 degrees C in the the normal range and -20 to +70 C in the extended temperature range.
Voltage available: 5.0V (and some 3.3V)
Contrast control with STN (Supertwisted Nematic) or FSTN (Film-compensated Supertwisted Nematic)
2 light transmission modes available:
Transmissive - Transmissive LCDs have a transparent rear polarizer and do not reflect ambient light. A backlight is required and will work best in low light conditions.
Transflective - Transflective LCDs are a mixture of reflective and transmissive types with the rear polarizer having partial reflectivity and combined with a backlight. Can be operated in direct sunlight without loss of clarity.
Reflective - By combining a reflector with the rear polarizer, ambient light is used to illuminate the display in reflective mode. It works best in an outdoor or well-lit office environment.
Operational Life: LED backlights offer a long operating life - 50,000 hours minimum. The advantages of LED backlighting are its low cost, long life, immunity to vibration, low operational voltage, and precise control over its intensity.
Wide variety of fonts available from Hebrew to Cyrillic to European
Other parallel displays available: Vacuum Fluorescent (VF.D) and Polymeric Light Emitting Diodes (PLED)
