Letterbox Displays Designed For You

What are Letterbox Displays?

Our letterbox shaped displays allow information to be presented clearly on a dashboard, instrument panel or other user interface where a traditional TFT simply won’t fit.

Customers who want to transform their system from a monochrome to a colour display, for example, in rack mounted equipment where there are height restrictions, often feel the cost of a custom display is prohibitive unless volumes are exceptional.

Our semi-custom service provides a very economical way forward and allow our customers to have the display they want in their existing enclosure, thereby saving valuable re-design cost and resources.


Custom Services


We can cut down TFT display sizes from 2.0" to 10.1" TFT to a specified height, and add touch control, FPCs and a backlight to their specification. All this at much lower NRE than a full custom TFT display of a bespoke size. As with all our displays, we can customise to suit your specific application. Take a look at the services we offer here.

The entire process, including resizing and the addition of a backlight and touch interface, are carried out at a single ISO9001 accredited site with appropriate clean room facilities.

In addition we have an 11" module with high brightness display.
