Low Power, Sunlight Readable, Chip-On-Glass Character Display

Santa Fe Springs, March 8, 2002: Densitron, the electronics and information systems specialist, has cut through price barriers by offering a rugged, 2 lines 16-characters, sunlight readable, Chip-On-Glass LCD (DV3002) at a cost as little as $5.28 each at 5,000 pieces.

Capable of surviving extreme temperatures from -20°C to +70°C, and high humidity (90%RH), it has an MTBF in excess of 100,000 hours and draws only 50 micro A for typical "normal" mode at 5V.

The DV3002 is ideal for battery powered applications where weight and harsh environment are likely to be encountered such as on process control equipment, mobile data-collection devices, and handheld instrumentation.

Measuring only 69.5mm(w) x 25.05mm(h) and just 2.85mm in thickness, the DV3002 has an effective display area of 61mm x 15.1mm, offering designers a large viewing area in a small overall package size. Its STN fluid in positive mode also offers a wide viewing angle and excellent readability under sunlight.

The built-in LCD controller incorporates a character generator offering 225 different 5x7 alphanumeric patterns and symbols to minimize programming efforts. Other display control functions include: Blink character, display and cursor ON/OFF, display and cursor shift, and display clear. The DV3002's high-speed 8-bit interface allows direct connection to many microprocessors. Alternatively, a 4-bit parallel interface may be used. No external clock is required for RAM read/write operations. Standard interface for the DV3002 is via a 14-way 1.0mm pitch flex cable (optional pin or elastomeric connections are available to solve difficult PCB mounting problems).

Delivery is stock to 8 weeks ARO depending on availability. All stock is subject to prior sale.
