NKK Switches announced the availability of its OLED SmartSwitch and SmartDisplay high resolution programmable switches. These switches offer high contrast more brilliant pictures, 180-degree viewing angles, full colors, lower power consumption, fast response times and no backlighting requirements. These programmable pushbutton switches and displays feature a programmable and changeable OLED module with 65,536 colors in 16 bit mode, and 256 colors in 8 bit mode. Both devices are capable of displaying full-motion video. The emissive devices are operated by commands and data supplied via the SPI communications protocol. The switch is capable of 64RGB x 48 pixel resolution, and the display 52RGB × 36. The wide viewing area of the switch is 15.5 mm × 11.6 mm (horizontal × vertical), and the display is 12.9 mm × 9.9 mm (horizontal × vertical). NKK’s OLED SmartSwitch and SmartDisplay are suited for a variety of applications requiring a graphical user interface or real-time sequencing. They are said to simplify complex multi-decision operations in string-dependent switching systems. Applications include audio-video broadcast workstations, industrial control panels, medical equipment and communications systems.
