The EA DOGXL160-7 graphic display from Electronic Assembly enhances the company’s chip-on-glass product line by adding a further display unit with 160 × 104 pixel resolution. This makes it possible to accommodate up to 13 lines of 26 characters each in normal type and 6 lines of 20 characters each in large type. Each pixel is controlled separately. The EA DOGXL160-7 also provides developers with a large range of variants and combination options with respect to color and control. Five combinations of display and background color are available as is STN and FSTN technology with high contrast. The display units can also be combined with seven different lighting schemes (white, yellow/green, blue, red, amber and green), with one model even supporting the entire color spectrum as a RGB backlight. This leads to a wide variety of variations that blend seamlessly with almost all conceivable designs.
The displays feature an integrated graphics controller of type UC1610 in addition to the accompanying graphics RAM. Developers can choose from four serial interfaces to connect to the outside world – a 4-wire, 8-bit SPI, a 3-wire, 8-bit SPI, a 3-wire, 9-bit SPI, and a 2-wire I2C. In 2-wire I2C mode, one of two base addresses can be set so that two displays can be operated using a single I2C bus.
