The first intelligent graphic display
- 320x240 - ¼VGA 5.7" -
- 240 x 128 pixels -
sheet eDIP240-7 (838KB)
sheet eDIP320-8 (1,0MB)
This is how graphics programming will look in the future: no more "pixel
programming" but, instead, efficient operation with extensive drawing
functions and fonts. The advantages are obvious:
- no time-consuming graphics programming
- drastically reduced time-to-market
- tested functions validated hundreds of times
flexibility thanks to powerful commands and a variety of interfaces
(RS-232, I²C, SPI)
- extremely compact construction
- and not the least important benefit: a clear price advantage compared
to individualized solutions

Samples are available
built-in fonts in different sizes (see picture opposite). All the character
sets can be enlarged to up to 4 times their original size. A command allows
you to rotate them by 90° for vertical presentation. Separate character
sets such as Cyrillic or Chinese can be additionally integrated at any
such as the touchkey with menu function, clipboard,
bargraph, centered strings...
You can therefore create the screen layout you want with just a few, easily
understood commands. All the commands are based on coordinate specifications
and can therefore be applied and moved to the nearest pixel.
There is a built-in self-test facility for demonstration purposes and
initial testing: simply set the "Test" pin to low.
Simulator / Editor / Compiler for Windows
Helpful for the development, but also powerful for 1st. steps is the simulator
software for Windows (EA eDIP240-7). With that internal EEPROM can be
used to define some pre-defined screen layouts. Software is available
for can be downloadedhere immediately: LCD
Tools for Windows.
Even communication of simulator via serial interface of PC or via terrminal
is possible. Thus a complete and elegant development tool is provided
This innovative display has an extremely space-saving design that simultaneously
maximizes the viewing area: there is no PCB overhang and no contact pads
for connectors or cables. The viewing area is also optimally sized.
EA eDIP240-7: Dimensions: 113x70x11mm - Viewing
area: 96x61mm (4.2")
EA eDIP320-8: Dimensions: 138x105x10mm - Viewing area: 121x93mm
The integrated graphics controller, built-in temperature
compensation and integrated negative supply also help reduce the PCB size.
Moreover, no additional electronics are required for the optional touch
panel: a touch controller is already built in.
Fast, easy assembly
Like all DIP modules, the displays are simply inserted in the PCB and
soldered in place. No screws, distance sleeves or cables are required,
thus saving material costs and simplifying construction. This results
in a saving of between 2 and 4 minutes per module during assembly!
3 different interfaces (RS-232, I²C, SPI)
There is something to match every system: depending on the configuration,
the connection can be established via an RS-232 (CMOS level), SPI or I²C
State-of-the-art display technology
Only top-quality materials are used. As a result, this display is very
easy to read and offers a high level of contrast. The design and manufacture
of this display series guarantees minimum downtimes even under extreme
Optionally, we can also supply this display with an analog touch panel
which can be used for all types of input. An integrated touch controller
is responsible for representing and labelling the keys as well as for
their interpretation. What is more, the shape, size and number of the
keys can be modified whenever required at runtime. This permits a clear,
well-organized screen layout that helps eliminate operating errors.
Device adaptations for foreign countries and languages are simple to implement
even in tiny runs thanks to the variable labelling. This includes cyrillic
With an extended standard temperature range of -20..+70 °C, rapid response
times are guaranteed down to -20 °C (max. 3 seconds). Even the essential
temperature compensation is already built-in. The displays are designed
for +5V single-supply operation.
The package EA START-eDIP240 and EA STARTeDIP320 contains everything to
get very fast and easy familiar with them:
