  • Mobile: Computer and Telecommunications


  • LED: Segment and Dot Matrix Light Emitting Diode (LED) technology has been around for many years and is currently in use in many display applications, especially in large screen formats
  • LCD Active: TFT (Color) Currently the most dominant form of flat panel display technology, LCD displays offer benefits in terms of size, weight, and power consumption. The Active Matrix LCD, sometimes referred to as Thin-Film Transistor, incorporates a transistor behind each sub-pixel element, which can be individually controlled.
  • LCD Passive:
    • Monochrome Characters
    • Monochrome Graphics
    • Color Graphics - Passive LCD technology relies on sending an electrical current along the display edge column and row to reach a particular sub-pixel.
  • Electro-Luminescent (EL): EL is a solid-state display technology that is extremely rugged, durable and particularly well-suited for applications—especially military—demanding extreme operating conditions.
  • Vacuum Florescent: VF technology is a kind of triode vacuum tube with three electrodes, which are: Cathode Filaments, Control Grids, and Illumination Anodes. They offer high brightness, wide viewing angles, and wide temperature ratings.
  • Touch Screens are often used as an alternative—or in addition to—traditional human-machine interface technologies. Because of their intuitive nature, touch screens are often used in applications where the user cannot be trained to interface with the device. Kiosks and point of sale devices exemplify these applications.
  • Display Controllers: Capabilities for display controller integration cover the entire range of display technologies from the simplest segment controllers to full speed analog and digital video interfaces.
