Avnet Embedded is introducing the new Memory LCD type LS010B7DH01 from Sharp, an ultra low-power display incorporating for the first time a circular active display area of 12,868 pixels. At a diameter of 1-inch (2.5cm) with 128 × 128 pixel the new Memory LCD provides excellent resolution and a sufficient display area for the full graphic black and white visualization of content. Excellent legibility in all light conditions is ensured by the 14:1 contrast ratio of the high reflectivity LCD. Thanks to the display area’s 0.25% transmissive ratio, the new Memory LCD can be fitted with a backlight so that the screen content can be easily recognized in the dark. With its circular shape, the LS010B7DH01 is particularly suitable for wrist-worn devices requiring extended runtimes. These include not only wristwatches but also endurance and mountain sports computers as well as medical tele-monitoring devices. The circular Memory LCD can also be used as screen for E-bikes speedometers, fitness equipment or thermostats.
Like all Memory LCDs, the LS010B7DH01 features very low power consumption with a mere 10 µW for static images, and, even with a regular display content refresh rate of 1 Hertz, the LCD consumes only 45 µW.
