EA DIP series displays from company Electronic Assembly provide an uncommon possibility to choose a graphic or a character display without a change of your device´s hardware.
A quality display with a high contrast and an automatic temperature compensation, easy mounting by soldering of pins into a PCB, a display maximally utilizing the module size – without overhangs and mounting openings, compatibility with industry standard graphic controllers (HD44780), low power consumption – all these are the features saying in favor of EA DIP series displays. To these benefits of EA DIP series, we can also add another uncommon feature – a possibility to change a character display for a graphic one without a change in hardware (at types of the same size). EA DIP series consists of several types as you can see in the following table.
Types with the same dimensions, for example the graphic EA DIP122J (122×32) and character EA DIP162J (2×16) and EA DIP203B (4×20) feature the same pinout, that´s why it is possible to use these types into the same PCB (at a modification of firmware of your device and meeting requirements of given types). It provides an elegant way how to create various versions of a product or to maintain a possibility of “upgrade
