San Juan Capistrano, Calif. EarthLCD, a wholly owned subsidiary of Earth Computer Technologies, Inc. has released a 2.7-inch, 240 x 160 small form factor TFT color LCD display, and ezLCD-001-EDK Evaluation Kit. The display is available as a complete assembly with a built-in Earth LCD controller card mounted onto an evaluation board for easy interfacing to the LCD controller through integrated USB and serial connectivity.
Targeting OEM customers, the company has also launched a lower priced ezLCD-001 display module that excludes the evaluation board. Incorporating a 240 x 160 2.7-inch serial TFT color graphic LCD module with multi-font text layer, and RS232 and USB interfaces, the new display module offers a default serial data rate of 115200 bauds that is user changeable to any standard speeds between 2400 and 115200 bauds.
In addition, the ezLCD-001 includes SPI and I2C serial interfaces and 20 discrete inputs/outputs, and can be powered by any USB port or external power supply. An internal dc/dc converter accounts for a wide supply voltage range of 3 to 7 Vdc.
The ezLCD-001 is driven by an extensive set of graphic, text and system instructions including DOWNLOAD_BITMAP, SET_COLOR, SELECT_FONT, PRINT, LINE, CIRCLE, POINT, and SET_BAUDRATE. The firmware may be updated through the embedded RS232 interface.
The ezLCD-001 can be used as a PC status monitor, embedded system display, or integrated into a variety of industrial products.
A touch screen version is planned.
