Monochrome display with the intelligence of the “big ones”

15 APRIL 2011

Electronic Assembly has integrated a graphic controller into its eDIP128-6 family of displays. This is the first time that the company has offered a monochrome 128 x 64 pixel display with a built-in graphic controller. For cost reasons, it had not been possible to do so in the past. The display is also available with a touch panel, making it the ideal solution for machine control applications in a wide range of industries. The built-in graphic controller makes it much easier for developers to design sophisticated control panels into their equipment, machines and systems. The displays come with eight character sets (fonts) built in. Graphic commands which provide the same ease of use as high-level languages are available to program functions and position characters and bitmap images with single-pixel accuracy. No need for additional software or drivers. No time-consuming and error-prone machine level programming. The eDIP128-6 drastically reduces time to market. More than 256 macros can be stored in the onboard EEPROM. Developers can pre-define display content as complete images which can be stored in the non -volatile memory for immediate use. The touch panel can be used to create a user interface. The developer can define touch-activated controls on the display.
