EarthLCD Introduces "Smart" 8-Inch Color LCD Module to Meet OEM Demands for Easy GUI Programmability for Embedded Applications
San Juan Capistrano, Calif. - In response to market demand for a mid-sized programmable LCD for embedded applications, EarthLCD has introduced the ezLCD 8" intelligent color TFT LCD Module. Offering all the inherent features of the company's top performing ezLCD-101 Model, the new ezLCD-105-EDK 8" incorporates built-in intelligence and quick connectivity that provides virtually instant GUI interface.
The device's ability for turn-key GUI integration is made possible through the integral processor and LCD controller. Following quick connectivity via Serial, USB, RS-232, or SD/MMC, I2C communication port, customized bitmap images, fonts and icons can be quickly uploaded and controlled with a microcontroller or PC. With the majority of the electronic graphical components incorporated directly into the LCD, fewer components need to be purchased and stocked by the OEM or manufacturer. And the design engineer can concentrate on customizing the graphics to meet the unique intricacies of the product, rather than spending time creating complex graphical hardware and software.
With its bright 8" color 800x600 TFT display, designers can fully optimize color capabilities to provide cutting-edge competition with emerging technologies. The device includes integrated touch screen, 220 Nits LED LCD (Cd/M2), USB 2.0, true RS-232 with + 12 Volt supply voltage, and RoHS compliance. Other features include S.D. flash card for graphics expansion, OEM data storage, and logging capabilities.
In addition to being integrated into new products, the ezLCD module makes it easy to add a GUI or status display to existing embedded products with very little change to the base system. The ezLCD Module can run as a stand alone unit for use as a bitmap slideshow or remain connected to a PC as an "intelligent display" for live data feeds.
Founded in 1984, EarthLCD specializes in designing and manufacturing cost effective LCD products for industrial and OEM applications worldwide. The company's mantra of "We make LCDs Work" has successfully earned them recognition as the supplier of choice for LCD connectivity. EarthLCD is a leading "Made in USA" manufacturer of industrial grade LCD kits, LCD modules, industrial LCD touch monitors, LCD touch screens, industrial LCD displays, all-in-one panel PC's, single board computers, and LCD controller cards.
