The 4Duino-24 is an 2.4 inch Arduino IDE programmable display module that combines the uLCD-24PTU, Arduino Leonardo, and ESP8266 WIFI. Packed with features this standalone module brings you great graphics, resistive touch capability and internet access; making it perfect for Arduino based IoT applications.
The modules-on-the-go (MOTG) series from 4D Systems provide a plug-and-play interface to the gen4 range of DIABLO16 and PICASO intelligent display modules. This open interface standard responds to the demand for additional display module interface and communication capabilities. The MOTG approach provides an extremely quick and convenient method of adding a host of low-profile connectivity options to the gen4 display modules.
The gen4 series from 4D Systems is a new range of slim and sleek display modules with a new optional optically bonded cover lens bezel for seamless and cost effective integration of a Graphical User Interface to virtually any application. These display modules are designed specifically for ease-of-use and rapid development cycles, with careful consideration for space requirements and functionality.
The 4DCAPE-70 from 4D Systems is a 7.0" LCD CAPE, specifically designed to provide a primary display for the Beagle Bone Black, allowing direct connection and usability. The Beagle Bone Black connects directly to the back and provides everything the CAPE requires such as power and display signals. Another CAPE can be added to the secondary connectors on the back of the 4DCAPE-70 if required. The 4DCAPE-70 is not compatible with the previous Beagle Bone.

This CAPE is also available with a resistive touch, and is directly connected to the Beagle Bone, which eliminates the need for a separate power source. The 4DCAPE-70 utilizes the drivers developed for the CircuitCo LCD7 A3, however provides a different form factor and pricing point to the LCD7.

The CAPE features 7 push buttons below the screen, LEFT, RIGHT, UP, DOWN, ENTER, RESET and POWER, along with 2 LEDs to indicate Power and User Status (normally heartbeat). 4D Systems also supplies a 4.3" version of this CAPE, the 4DCAPE-43.

Winstar Display released a new version of the standard WH1602B series. The WH1602B is a 2x16 character display with a VATN LCD (Vertically Aligned Twisted Nematic) that provides sharper contrast, high brightness and great viewing angle. VATN displays operate in a negative mode with a transmissive polarizer and are therefore easier to read in dark environments.

The built-in controller IC of the WH1602B allows you to choose between the following interface options: 6800 parallel, 4 line SPI or I2C. Each interface option has a different model number. The displays are available in 5 colors, white, green, red, blue, yellow/green.

About Vertical alignment (VA) displays: When no electric current is running through the liquid crystal cells, the cells naturally align vertically between two substrate panes of glass which blocks the transmission of light from the backlight. This renders the crystals opaque and results in a black display screen.
When an electric current is applied, the liquid crystal cells shift to a horizontal position between the substrates allowing light to pass through resulting in a white display screen.

The WF57S and WF62A series from Winstar are monochrome graphic TFT displays with a diagonal of resp. 5.7 and 6.2 inch. The TN positive LCD, applied in the active matrix TFT, results in high contrast/brightness and short response times. In short, the mono TFT display performance is much better in contrast, brightness and response time than traditional monochrome LCD module. These displays are sunlight readable.

Driving these displays is easy. There is no need for an external controller board to drive the MCU control, yet they still offer the same performance characteristics as full color TFTs.

Depending on the setting these displays can operate in 2, 4 and 16 shades of gray scale modes. The WF57S and WF62A series support several user selectable communication modes : 3 - or 4-line serial interface and an 8 -bit parallel interface compatible with standard systems with 8080 or 6800 family.
Also worth mentioning is the option to turn the device into a sleep mode without clearing the memory contents of the display.

These high performance monochrome TFT-LCDs are the ideal solution in circumstances where there are fewer requirements for full color displays such as automotive and industrial applications.

More and more applications with larger displays (such as digital signage) require optical bonding. CiVUE is now capable to apply optical bonding on displays up to 70 inch.

CiVUE optical bonding technology affixes a cover lens directly onto a flat panel display and eliminates the air gap between them. This reduces the reflectance as low as 0.2% and increase the contrast ratio in a high ambient light environment.

This technology also allows designers and mechanical engineers to design a larger cover lens or leave out the front bezel for less total thickness, rather than the traditional bezel design. This is because not only can the bonding layer provides better impact absorption, but also better support to the cover lens.

Winstar provides Character OLED display and Graphic OLED modules. They offer COB/COG/TAB construction PMOLED.
PMOLED do not require any backlight and filtering systems.

PMOLED stands for Passive-Matrix OLED, which relates to the way you control the display. A PMOLED display uses a simple control scheme in which you control each row (or line) in the display sequentially (one at a time).
PMOLED electronics do not contain a storage capacitor and so the pixels in each line are actually off most of the time. To compensate for this you need to use more voltage to make them brighter.

PMOLED displays are restricted in resolution and size. PMOLED displays are usually small (up to 3" typically) and used to display character data or small icons: they are being used in wearable devices, small gadgets and sub displays.

Winstar has formfit replaceable PMOLED displays in her portfolio, to exchange existing STN and FSTN designs.

PMOLED Displays are available in Yellow / Green / Red / White / Blue.
