Now available with 2.9" Touch

The new bigger EA DOGL128-6 Modules from ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY with 128x64 dots now can be used with the EA TOUCH128-2. This is a 4-wire resistive Touch with a self glueing backside to stick it directly to the display surface. For the connection it has a 4-pin flexible cable FFC with a pitch of 1.0mm and a length of about 25mm. On these 4 pins 4 electrodes along the sides „left", „right" and „top", „bottom" are connected. A fitting ZIF connector can be supplied also.
For utilization it can be used either a µController with analogue inputs or a separate external touch panel Controller. The touch panel works like a potentiometer. The resistance value of the 2 touch levels is in the range of several hundred Ohms. To evaluate the position of the touch you need 2 steps. For the horizontal position you have to put a voltage of e.g. 3.3V to the "left" and "right" electrodes. Now you can measure the position value at the „top" or „bottom" electrodes. For the vertical position you have to put the voltage to „top" and „bottom" and measure the value at „left" or „right".
For best readability when using a touch panel it is recommended to use a display with back light. The LED-back lights for the DOGLModules are available in the colours white, yellow/green, blue, red, amber, green and full colour RGB. The extreme high brightness at low power consumption make sure that the readability is excellent. ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY has various designs in their chip-on-glass family. Available is a little bit smaller DOGM-Series also with 128x64 dots and also with touch as well as a version with 132x32 dots and 3 text displays with 1x8, 2x16 and 3x16 character. With these products you have in total more than 200 possibilities for combinations.
All above mentioned modules are normally available ex stock.

Most brilliant graphic displays

are found in EA DOG-series. The super bright backlight is extreme even and available in various different colours. Also a RGB backlight is included. The contrast and viewing angle of the STN and FSTN displays is without any reproval. More than that: the unbelievable compact design and the integrated graphic controller with SPI interface makes it straightforward.
The displays will be soldered direct onto a pcb, and for programming there are ready made character sets and some routines for initialisation available. Furthermore there is a testboard for easy USB connection and a gratis simulation software for Windows on hand. Outstanding is the low current consumption of 150~350uA only at single supply +3.3V (depends on display size). There is no additional voltage needed. Contrast is held steady over unsteady supply voltage and over the whole ambient temperature automatically. Contrast adjustment is done via software control. Because this display series was developed for industrial application, operating temperature range is wide with -20 up to +70°C.
Optionally display can be equipped by a touch panel. ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY does offer the EA DOG-series with 132x32 and 128x64 dots (2 different sizes). With 7 different backlights these display do match to every design. The white backlight e.g. is perfect for battery powered systems because it is bright enough even at low current of 5mA. Last but not least all displays are with all colours available ex stock !

3.3V Graphics LCD

With their width of 34 and 56mm 2 new graphics modules come to market as the smallest ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY ever had. Both displays EA W128 are equiped with an integrated graphics controller KS0713. Supply voltage is 2.4~3.6V and thanks to the built in charge pump there is no additional supply voltage required. Contrast is set by software. Interface can be switched from 8 bit data bus to serial SPI with CLK, SID and SOD. As a standard both displays are available with and without EL backlight. Backlighted versions provide very best contrast for various environments. Low power consumption with less than 1mA and a thickness of 1.6mm make these modules perfect for mobile applications. Resolution of 128x64 dots is good for 21 characters and 8 lines and even for many graphic symbols. This flexibility opens a wide range of application possibilities e.g. in mobile data terminals, medicine diagnostics and a small lowcost display for monitoring aswell.

DIP LCD - fixing itself

There are no more srews, pin header or flat cable required for mounting the new displays from the DIP-line. Designed within a dip case like an integrated circuit with two pin rows there are a lot of advantages: Viewing area is nearly as wide as the outline dimension (61x19mm at an outline of 68x27mm). Tickness is less than 11mm even for LED backlighted modules. At this moment there are 3 different versions available. Two of them are character displays, one with 1x8 and 11.48mm character height and the other one with 2x16 and 6.68mm characters. Both are software- and hardware-compatible to the HD 44780 standard. The graphics version provides a solution of 122x32 dots and comes with a controller SED 1520. Because of their identically pinout and outline dimensions all types can be replaced by another module from the dip line. The displays are all made with modern supertwist panels and where shipped with a brightness adjustable led backlight. Power consumption for that is typically 70mA.

Slim Graphic LCDEA P120

A new supertwist liquid gives the LC graphic display EA P120 from ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY the best contrast available on small LCDs. The module has a resolution of 120x32 dots, enough for 4x20 characters with a height of 4.55mm. Larger characters (e.g. 9.7mm at 2x15 chars. or 20.8mm at 1x8) and graphs can also be displayed. Many different character sets are available on disc. The display is also available with LED or EL backlight. Wide operating temperature range from -20 to +70°C is standard. A graphic controller SED 1520 makes connecting to an 8 bit databus very easy. Power supply requirement is +5V and typically -1.7V with a current consumption of 800µA max. For low power applications 3.3V operation is possible. The most important aim when developing the module was to maximize the viewing area, and minimize the dimensions (62x22.4mm by 68x39mm). A depth of 6.2mm makes the reflective and EL lighted modules especially suitable for handheld applications. The price of the EA P120 is below that of a standard 4x20 character display - but with a full graphic feature!

4-20mA Loop Powered Panel MeterEA 4220

Only two wires are needed to connect EA 4220-CL to your signal source. No soldering or special connectors - the wires will be plugged into screw terminals; decimal points are selected by jumpers. Mechanical mounting is even more simple: Just push the snap-in box (90x50mm) into your front panel - Ready. Since the input signal ranges from 4 to 20 mAmps, there is always enough energy to supply the low-power panel meter. Versatile adjustments for zero offset and span make the module suitable for a wide range of applications. Excellent contrast is achieved by the easy to read LCD display with 3½digit and 18mm / 0.7" digit height. A precison band gap reference offers a more constant readout than on other panel meters. For other applications there are three more, similar modules in the same box: EA 4220-AT measures current from 0 to ±20mA. Due to this input range, a supply voltage (5V/<20mA) is needed. Don't worry about INLO and GND potentials - the on-board DC/DC converter guarantees isolation of supply and signal input. EA 4220-VTB is a 0 to ± 2V voltmeter with more than 100 MOhms input resistance. Supply voltage (5V/<20mA) and input signal are isolated by an on-board DC/DC converter. A special feature is that the read-out at 0V input can be shifted. EA 4220-VB voltmeter offers the same input range, but can be supplied with a DC voltage of 5V ... 12V ... 24V (other supply voltage on request). In most applications only three wires are needed: Supply, Ground, InHigh.
