Smart TFT display module supports custom user interfaces

Review Display Systems (RDS) has announced the availability of a new fully integrated 4.1-inch TFT display module.

The DWIN DMG72720T041-06WTC features an IPS (in-plane switching) TFT display with a built-in dual-core microcontroller-based ASIC, a touch controller and a fully integrated InCell capacitive touch panel.

The 4.1-inch smart module implements a UART-based serial communications display interface that enables a simple and cost-effective method of system integration and supports the development of custom user applications without the need for any additional embedded electronics to drive the display.

The display module features a square 4.1-inch, IPS TFT LCD with a resolution of 720 x 720 pixels, which enables wide viewing angles of 85 degrees in all directions, and supports 8-bit RGB data enabling a colour palette of up to 16.7million colours. A white LED backlight delivers a specified brightness rating of 400cd/m².

DWIN provide and support a free PC-hosted software development tool, DGUS (DWIN Graphic Utilised Software) that enables custom graphical user interfaces to be created and developed. A predefined application development environment supports a wide range of graphic functions and library elements.

Additionally, user defined images, icons, corporate branding, and logos can be easily uploaded to the development environment.

The development and implementation of graphical user interfaces are aided by the InCell PCap (projected capacitive) touchscreen which is fully integrated within the LCD cell. The 4.1-inch display module has outline mechanical dimensions of 82.8mm (w) x 79.1mm (h) x 6mm (d) and an active display area of 73.98mm (w) x 73.98mm (h). An operating temperature range of -20°C to +70°C is supported.

The display module also features 16MB of onboard Flash memory which enables graphics, icons, images, and text to be uploaded via the serial interface.

The DWIN DMG72720T041-06WTC display module can be configured to support graphical user interfaces across a broad range of applications such as data entry, keypad access, remote control, security systems, smart home devices, equipment control and monitoring.
