The μLCD43(GFX) is an intelligent graphics display that harnesses the power to deliver a diverse range of features in a single, compact cost effective unit. Embedded at the heart of the design is the PICASO-GFX2 processor, which is driven by a highly optimized virtual core engine; EVE (Extensible Virtual Engine).
An extensive range of hardware and software peripherals have been integrated into the design, to give the user freedom to adapt the module to suit almost any application. Features include; a 4.3” TFT 480×272 touch screen display, audio, micro-SD card connector, an expansion port along with a series of GPIO, I2C pins and serial comms. The μLCD43(GFX) serves as the perfect solution to be deployed at the forefront of any product design, requiring a brilliance of colour, animation or images on a 4.3’’ widescreen display.

TDK Corporation has started mass production of a new translucent passive matrix organic electroluminescent display with QVGA resolution. The UEL476 display is fabricated using thin-film technology with an organic material that emits light in response to an electric current. It features high brightness, a wide viewing angle and other characteristics that make it very easy on the eye. [via]

2.2″ QVGA Smart LCD – μLCD-320-PMD2
4D Systems designs and manufactures intelligent, cost effective modules for any embedded microprocessor based system or as an independent stand alone system. Our All-in-One smart display modules offer a simple 2 wire interface to any host processor and the command set is easy to use and understand.
The μLCD is a compact & cost effective all in one ‘SMART” LCD module with an embedded graphics controller that will deliver ‘stand-alone’ functionality to your project.
The ‘simple to use’ embedded commands not only control background colour but can produce text in a variety of sizes as well as draw shapes (which can include user definable bitmapped characters such as logos) in 256 or 65,536 colours whilst freeing up the host processor from the ‘processor hungry ‘ screen control functions.
This means a simple micro-controller with a standard serial or USB interface can drive the μLCD module with total ease.
