New Smart TFTs™ deliver low-risk, entry-level colour and touchscreen functionality to new and existing industrial and medical devices – faster, easier, and more cost effectively.

LONDON, UK – OCTOBER 18, 2010 – Anders Electronics, market leader in innovative electronic device display experience optimization, has announced the launch of its new Smart Touch Modules, a range of small to medium-sized TFT display platforms, with optional touchscreen functionality. Pre-integrated with all driving electronics and backlight drivers, the Smart Touch Modules are ready to be connected by serial port to the device host processor with almost no integration overhead.

Increasingly strident market demands for colour and touchscreen functionality have led device manufacturers in the industrial and medical space to actively seek out solutions for rapid integration of such advanced user interfaces, without impacting pre-production overhead or time-to-market.

Smart Touch Modules from Anders are highly cost-effective, off-the-shelf, entry-level TFT user interface platforms. Featuring simple, low-overhead mechanical and technical integration, and are especially suited to products with low production volumes (500-5000 pieces) - enabling device manufacturers bring their products to market quickly and cost-effectively, even without prior colour TFT LCD or touch experience

Available in a variety of screen sizes and resolutions - from 3.5" QVGA to 10.2" WVGA – Smart Touch Modules are pre-integrated with all on-board driving electronics including LED backlight drivers, and are ready to be connected via standard asynchronous serial port to the host processor. The modules are OS agnostic, and work with any operating system, or even without a host OS. The products also feature an integrated buzzer, built in real time clock, battery, and a USB Port for updating the graphics library.

Adding further value to the Smart Touch Modules, Anders offers a range of display enhancements, such as sunlight readability treatments, chemically strengthened glass, optical bonding, and EMI filters. Additionally, Anders offers GUI design and implementation, along with front panel/casing industrial design.

"Meeting market demands for colour and touchscreen functionality has become a real challenge for the non-consumer segment of device manufacturers," said Mike Logan Product Manager of Anders. "The Smart Touch Modules line was conceived to help our clients more effectively compete with products that meet market expectations for advanced user interface, without sapping scarce design and integration resources," he continued.

Anders Smart Touch Modules evaluation kits are available now for qualified clients at www.anders-electronics.com.
