Reach Technology’s new SLCD5+ serial embedded LCD controller boards, now available from Dominion Electronics , enable users to quickly incorporate SCGA (800x600) colour touch screens up to 12.1 inches into their products.
Boasting a faster processor for improved boot time, and more memory to handle images, macros and fonts, these LCD controller boards offer a marked improvement in performance when compared to previous models in the range.
The ability to use large panels and high pixel densities with these LCD controller cards allows more controls to be visible at the same time, which is important for many medical and industrial embedded LCD touch screen applications.
President of Reach Technology, Jonathan More, explains that “we created the SLCD5+ when medical and industrial customers started asking for larger screens with high resolutions.”
SLCD5+ serial embedded LCD controller boards share the form factor and mounting of existing SLCD5 embedded controller boards, and also feature:
- standard embedded LCD panel connectors
- 64MB RAM memory
- 32MB flash memory
- an SD memory card slot for storage and upgrades
- a 266MHz 32 bit ARM9 processor
- wide voltage operation of 5 to 12V; and
- ESD protection for the embedded touch screen.
