Topway TFT LCD Display can shorten product’s time-to-market
Shenzhen Topway Technology Co.Ltd. has launched their TOPWAY Smart TFT LCD module, which embeds LCD driver, controller and MCU, in a color LCD module with digital brain. A thin-film-transistor liquid-crystal display (TFT LCD) is a variant of a liquid-crystal display (LCD) that uses thin-film-transistor (TFT) technology to improve image quality such as brightness and contrast.
A TFT LCD is an active matrix LCD, in contrast to passive matrix LCDs or simple, direct-driven LCDs with a few segments. Smart TFT LCD sets engineer free from tedious display programming, so that product engineer can focus on product development. Smart TFT LCD module can help users greatly reduce product’s time-to-market. And the product is more reliable with high EMI tolerance.
Taking over the duty of displaying content and respond to touch event, Topway launched Smart LCD module couple years ago. Smart LCD is a TFT LCD display module embedded with MCU, display engine and touch controller. Simple serial commands are all that is needed to interact with the screen, no more pixel programming.
Smart LCD module is between traditional TFT LCD module and HMI device. HMI device works as a standalone unit with higher cost. Topway Smart TFT LCD provides a cost effective way to quickly implement human – machine interface:
- Graphical UI Editor, enables quick user interface construction, speeds up product’s time-to-market
- Preloaded UI design in smart LCD, provides speedy showing and updating
- Embedded display engine, reduces main board workload and over-all cost
- Built-in Lue Script language engine, empowers rich and friendly user interface
- RJ45 port, supports long-distant update and easy expansion
- Unified body, improves EMC performance and increases reliability
Smart LCD module works with five basic items:
- Page – container for one UI screen, it holds page elements
- Element – functional display unit on a page. Such as Action, Character, Image etc.
-9 action type elements
-6 character type elements
-6 image type elements
-8 graphic type elements
- Call Function – function that can be triggered by Page start, Touch Key or Virtual Touch Key press action
-14 keyboard functions
- VP Variable – a RAM area for holding temporary value. It supports host access, on-screen keyboard input and value operations
- Image Resource – images linked by elements or pages for displaying, including background images, icon and animated images
Topway’s UI Editor for smart LCD module provides a zero-coding way to construct human machine interface. User can drag & drop above basic items onto page and set up their properties according to need.
