New RGB Backlight Character LCDs
Midas Displays are pleased to offer character RGB LCDs. These new character LCDs show an appearance of black characters, on an RGB backlight, which allows the user to choose any single colour for the backlight. Midas have two 2x16 modules available, with the option of either SPI, or parallel, interface.
Character LCDs are traditionally offered as one colour text, on one colour background. These new displays give the user much more freedom with how the display will look in their application, as the backlight on these displays are full colour RGB. The ability to choose any single colour as the backlight at a time also gives the user the option to use the display to suggest status within an application, such as hot or cold.
These new 2x16 displays have been added to the RGB LCD range, which includes a very popular 128x64 graphic RGB LCD, MCCOG128064B12W-FPTLRGB. Midas hope to add more options to this range soon.
Mark Lovick, Sales Manager, Midas Displays said, “Our RGB LED backlight displays are fantastic products. They enable the user to show a traffic light style status on their product, for example red for warning, and green for okay. RGB backlights can also be used to create any colour backlight appearance, which means the customer is no longer fixed to a yellow/green background, or white background. The 2x16 module is the first character display to be offered within the RGB backlight range, with many more to follow”.
The 2x16 displays are chip-on-board construction, making them easy to mount, and have both English, and Japanese, font sets. There is a parallel interface option, as well as an SPI interface option.
