Slim, attractive and versatile: the EA DOGS104-A display

EA_DOGS104-A_02Specialist display supplier Electronic Assembly has added a genuine treat to its highly versatile EA DOGS product family. Featuring an extremely compact design and low power consumption, the EA DOGS104-A is the ideal display for battery-powered handheld devices. The normal configuration is 4 lines by 10 characters. Alternatively, 2 lines of double-height characters or 3 lines (1 double-height and 2 normal-height) can be displayed. The dimensions are only 36 x 28 mm.

Support for English, European and Cyrillic character sets in a single display is another special feature of the EA DOGS104-A.

The EA DOGS104-A is also highly versatile. Developers can switch between the I²C and SPI ports.

Separation of the display and backlight functions is another special design feature. The two units can be configured by simply plugging them together. Various display technologies such as FSTN, STN and positive and negative display are available, and they can be combined with three different backlight colors. The backlighting options include a 2-color version and 3-color red/green/white. The design is very compact and even in combination with backlighting the display has an ultra-flat profile of only 4.6 mm max.

To get up and running easily and for prototype development, a USB test board with PC connection and Windows software including free simulator are available.
