Introducing the 8-inch Letterbox format TFT from SGD and RDS

RDS is proud to announce the availability of the new 8-inch letterbox format TFT screen from Solomon Goldentek Display (SGD Model GWTS80MNFG1E0). Many automotive manufacturers are moving towards smart rear-view mirrors. These devices are letterbox format screens that can display not only a simple rear-view but also other information such as tyre pressures, SAT-NAV and communications status. The new display from SGD was designed with this automotive application in mind, specifically with regard to the car rear-view mirror. However, it also has other applications such as digital signage, monitoring and medical systems.
