7-Inch Color Display Module Provides Wide-Screen Panel at Low Price Point

New Reach Technology product exploits the 7-inch LCD popularized by DVD players to create a ready-to-deploy module complete with controller board, LCD, and touch screen

Fremont, CA -- Reach Technology Inc. (www.reachtech.com), today announced a new 7-inch display module that gives customers access to the wide WVGA screen size that offers extended control area. The module uses a 7-inch LED backlight TFT panel suitable for industrial, long-life applications.

Reach Technology's 7-inch module comes complete with an SLCD5 controller board, LCD, backlight driver, and touch screen. Reach's display module technology and simple-to-use programming tools make GUI interface and integration easy. This helps customers reduce time-to-market and development costs. The company is currently shipping these units in small quantities and will have full production by the beginning of May.

The 7-inch LCD is an ideal size for a broad range of control surfaces. The wide screen ratio creates an ideal user interface space and gives customers looking for a screen larger than 5.7-inches a good value. Even though the 7-inch module is nearly as wide as the 8.4-inch module, it costs 40% less.

"We created the 7-inch module when one of our medical customers needed a screen bigger than the 5.7-inch, but at a lower price point than the 8.4-inch," said Jonathan More, President for Reach Technology. "This 7-inch display module gives our customers good bang for the buck."

The module has a steel mounting bracket with convenient mounting holes that makes the display easy to mount. Power requirement is 5VDC, and two serial interfaces are supplied.
