iLCD touch display delivers 500cd/m² for industrial applications
At embedded World 2014, a LCD touch panel offering a luminance of 500cd/m² has been presented by demmel products. The touch panel, designated the DPP-HT50, signals an expansion of the company's "Next Generation Intelligent LCD" (iLCD) technology which enables users to store all graphics, animations, fonts, text templates and macros in the flash memory of the iLCD.
The 5.0" iLCD features a 800 x 480 pixel resolution and the fast DPC3090 processor, enabling high-quality visualisations in the industry and in durable goods. Graphical elements can be designed with image processing software and used on the iLCD panel. High-end screen designs can also be created with the built-in and recently enhanced screen design commands. With these, objects like buttons or bars can be drawn, filled and given a 3D-appearance with freely definable tiling patterns and color gradients. Furthermore, assigned display areas may be changed in brightness and contrast.
The iLCD technology eliminates pixel-based programming required for conventional LCDs, thereby reducing overall development time and costs. The integrated iLCD controller offers powerful and easy to learn high-level commands. Formatting text messages with Windows fonts, displaying static and animated graphics, drawing frames and lines and controlling the touch screen can all be done quickly and simply via Ethernet, USB, RS232, I²C or SPI interfaces.
