Transonics launch I²C “Chip on Board” LCD from Displaytronic
News Release from:
12 June 2012
Transonics plc the London based leading supplier of electronic components and logistics solutions, announces the availability of the Displaytronic (a division of Zettler) I²C interface Chip-on-Board (COB) LCD module for information display on board-to-board systems. By integrating a special IC in the LCD display module, any system using the I²C control bus can communicate with the liquid crystal display module directly.
Now more than 30 years old, the I²C bus replaces complex parallel interfaces with a simple yet powerful two-wire serial structure, simplifying chip-to-chip communications. Carrying data one bit at a time it performs inter-chip addressing, selection, control, and data transfer, simply becoming another slave address on the bus.
Designing-in the Displaytronic ACM2002EI-FL-YBW I²C display simplifies hardware design, component count and time to market of end products. Connection via just four wires (VDD, VSS, SDA, SCL) is all that is required to control the display.
Standard features of the Displaytronic ACM2002EI-FL-YBW includes bus clock speed up to 400 KBit/s, assignable slave address to avoid slave address conflict, instruction table compatible with LCD controller ensures no extra commands are required.
Samples of ACM2002EI-FL-YBW with I²C interface are now available for customer testing. The new LCD display is based on the successful ACM2002E-FL-YBW and has the same optical characteristics and mechanical dimensions.
Daniel French, Managing Director of Transonics plc, Comments, “The new I²C interface LCD module from Displaytronic will simplify the design of board-to-board information display in industrial and instrumentation systems.”
