3.5” HVGA TFT with integrated graphics display range
GTK announced the addition of a 3.5” HVGA TFT with an integrated graphics controller on the FPC, enabling users to interface directly with the display eliminating the need for any additional graphics components on their PCB.
The TFT comprises a four-wire resistive touchscreen, which is polarised with a 6 o’clock viewing angle. From a performance perspective it boasts 240 cd brightness, 320x480px resolution and a 500:1 contrast ratio. It uses a serial interface and connects to the PCB via a ZIF connector.
Clive Dickinson, Business Manager for Displays at GTK, said: "This is a really innovative advance in Display technology and helps OEMs save space on their PCB and speed up their graphics design element of new product designs. This is suitable for any application that requires a graphic controller and is perfect for products that need to be compact in size, such as handheld diagnostics, time-attendance systems or smart home devices."
There are customisation options for this display, including custom graphic ICs and brighter backlights (up to 1,000 cd). The resistive four-wire input can be replaced with a capacitive touchscreen and designers can also explore additional options such as antimicrobial touchscreens or even completely touchless UI solutions. GTK’s technical experts can provide support and guidance to OEMs helping them to design the right display for their specific application.
