We have partnered with display module specialist Truly Semiconductor to create a round colour TFT display with or without touch with affordable NRE and tooling cost structures.
Is a circular display affordable?
The answer is yes. There are standard modules available, but the key point here is that we can work with you to create the display you actually need. With our affordable NRE and tooling cost structures most customers will be able to specify the exact size they want rather than compromise with an off-the-shelf standard product.
One example of a standard module is the 1.22" display with an overall diameter of 37.79mm, and an active area of 30.96mm diameter. The round LCD display can be driven from a 4.6V supply and operates at temperatures of -20 to +70 degrees Centigrade. The LED backlight runs from a 2.9V power supply.
