New LCD Controller from Digital View Features Universal LVDS Interface
Morgan Hill, CA, February 2005 - The new AL-1280 display interface controller from Digital View, Inc. is a compact, multi-sync interface for analog RGB connection to a wide range of LVDS-interface TFT type LCD panels. Supporting panel resolutions from 640x480 up to 1280x1024 pixels, the AL-1280 features automatic up-scaling of lower resolution inputs onto a higher resolution flat panel display.
Designed to provide an easy-to-use display interface solution with a small form factor (107mm x 92mm; 4.2" x 3.6") for industrial, medical, transportation, signage and military applications, the AL-1280 controller is specifically designed to meet the needs of system integrators, value added resellers and OEMs who need the flexibility to interface with a wide range of LCDs to satisfy custom application requirements.
"The controller's Universal LVDS Interface feature - ULI(TM) - ensures compatibility across the wide range of LVDS interfaces found in current LCD panels and does so in the most cost-effective manner," said Dusty Perryman, Director of Sales for Digital View's Display Electronics division. Digital View's ULI(TM) feature will be gradually phased into the company's entire range of controllers supporting LVDS panels, he said.
The AL-1280 offers very high reliability with an MTBF in excess of 100,000 hours, multi-panel support (VGA, SVGA, XGA, and SXGA formats) and standard analog RGB (ARGB) input (15 pin D-sub).

With support already in place for panels from Sharp, NEC, AU Optronics, LG Philips, Toshiba, Mitsubishi, Chi Mei, Fujitsu, Hitachi, CPT, Hyundai and Samsung, the AL-1280 will be available from all Digital View offices and distributors.
