Digital View Introduces New Cots Controllers Designed for LCDs Used in Harsh Environments

Morgan Hill, CA, September 2007 - Digital View has introduced the HE Series of COTS LCD controllers designed to comply with the strict standards required for the harsh environments encountered in military and rugged industrial applications.

The HE-1400 and HE-1600 Series controllers are designed specifically to aid manufacturers building hardened LCD display systems for military and industrial applications. Both controllers feature wide tolerance power supplies (12 VDC ± 25%), locking connectors and low-mass tantalum capacitors for maximum tolerance to shock and vibration, Mil-spec silicon resin conformal coatings, laboratory-certified operating temperature ranges of -40ºC to +80ºC, and calculated MTBF in excess of 150K hours (HE-1600) and 200K hours (HE-1400). Both are RoHS compliant.

The HE-1400 Series is a small footprint (4.2" x 3.6"), highly integrated controller with DVI and ARGB inputs. It supports both LVDS and TTL panels and is capable of supporting 4:3 format panels at up to SXGA resolution and 6:9 panels at up to WXGA resolution.

The HE-1600 Series is a fully buffered, multi-sync interface controller providing direct analog and digital connection to a wide range of TFT panels up to UXGA resolution. Its flexible port architecture provides inputs for DVI, dual VGA channels, Composite Video, S-Video and Component Video across both 4:3 and 16:9 format panels.

The HE-1600 supports Digital View's proprietary serial port protocol, enabling all controller functions and parameters to be controlled via a built-in RS232 serial port. A subset of Digital View's serial port protocol is available for the HE-1400 Series.

A wide range of accessories are available, including audio amplifier, inverter interface board, OSD button board, OSD membrane kits and IR remote control. Digital View offers a wide range of customization options for OEMs, including custom hardware and software product variations, documentation control and revision histories and extended product lifetime programs with EOL component management to prevent product obsolescence. Both HE Series controllers come with a 3-year warranty.

Pricing for Digital View's new HE Series controllers is $110 U.S. for the HE-1400 and $180 U.S. for the HE-1600 in 1,000-piece quantities. Both are available from Digital View's distribution network. Delivery is off-the-shelf.
