EarthLCD.com announced the immediate availability of its ezLCD-302 smart LCD module. The unit provides a desirable solution as a graphical user interface (GUI) for outdoor applications. Its all-in-one modular design unites a reflective color LCD, control electronics, memory and I/O, with an easy to use USB programmable firmware environment. Serial terminal software (included) and the EarthSEMPL language (Simple Embedded Macro Programming Language) allows users to customize macros, graphical objects, fonts, images, and interfaces, shortening the design cycle. The new ezLCD-302 features a 2.7-inch diagonal, highly reflective, color TFT LCD providing 240 x 160 pixel resolution, high contrast ratio, 4096 colors, LED front light, and low power consumption. Its intelligent control module is highlighted by a 16-Bit Micro-controller, 4 Mbytes of Flash Memory, USB 2.0, SPI, I²C, and RS232/TTL interfaces. The module operates at a +3.3-V supply voltage, draws less than 140 mA, and offers a -10 to +60°C operating temperature range. It is RoHS compliant, and employs a mechanical outline of 3.73 x 2.145 inches. Is is positioned as a credible alternative to outdoor readable character displays, vacuum florescent displays, FSTN passive matrix displays, or more complex high bright graphic LCD products.
