DOMINION Electronics has released Matrix Orbital's range of serial and USB displays using vacuum fluorescent display (VFD) technology. They will display up to 30 frames a second, showing easy-to-read characters that are crisp, clean and well defined.
Eight user-defined downloadable characters are available and the displays can communicate over RS-232, TTL or USB.
The displays are available with 12, 24 or 25-key interfaces. An onboard memory chip allows settings to be saved. A variety of filter colour options are available including red, blue, green or grey. The grey filter is circular-polarised, allowing the display to be viewed in direct sunlight.
All Matrix Orbital display solutions are built to plug easily into customer hardware and provide a user-friendly customer interface, saving both time and money in product development and ongoing production.
