Liquid crystal display (LCD) modules are commonly used in a variety of applications that are a part of our everyday lives. Full color TFT LCD modules are being used in a range of products, and have been implemented in everything from small handheld devices to large scale monitoring systems. Over the last few years 4.3” displays have been very popular in embedded system designs, but up until recently this screen size was almost completely restricted to a 480x272 resolution. The new 4.3” WVGA TFT LCD module is available with a 480x800 resolution, which significantly improves image quality and provides a much more common resolution for user interface integration.
This new 4.3” LCD uses specialized glass with In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology to give extremely viewing angles of 80° minimum all the way around. This ensures that the user can easily read the display no matter how the product is positioned. Other features include an onboard TFT controller, a wide range of serial & parallel interface options, high efficiency LED backlight, 800:1 contrast, fast response times, and wide -20~70°C operating temperature. Also available with optional standard resistive or projective capacitive (PCAP) touch panels.
