Display manufacturer and supplier Midas Displays has announced the introduction of a new range of micro and round OLED displays. The new OLED displays feature compact mechanical dimensions, exceptional brightness and contrast performance, and three different colour options.
The new micro OLED displays feature highly compact mechanical dimensions enabling these display modules to be used in a wide range of industrial equipment including hand-held, portable and wearable technology applications. An array of formats and resolutions are available including portrait mode with 48 x 64 pixel resolution and module dimensions of 13.9mm (w) x 22.0mm (h) x 1.26mm (d), two Landscape mode modules with 64 x 32 pixel and 64 x 48 pixel resolution, and module dimensions of 14.5mm (w) x 11.6mm (h) x 1.26mm (d), and 18.46mm (w) x 18.1mm (h) x 1.3mm (d) respectively, and a Circular mode format with 128 x 128 pixel resolution and module dimensions of 36.98mm (w) x 41.23mm (h) x 2.05mm (d).
All modules are available in three different colour mode options: blue on black, white on black and yellow on black. Excellent optical performance ensures bright, clear and concise images with a contrast ratio of 2000:1 and a specified brightness rating of up to 180cd/m². Viewing angles of 160° in both horizontal (left/right) and vertical (up/down) directions ensure the display image is easily visible from all viewing positions. Half-brightness lifetime is specified as up to 50K hours (depending on colour mode).
Paul Banham, marketing director, Midas Displays said: “Our new micro OLED product range has been specifically designed and developed to meet the needs of the industrial market, and as a result the technical specifications, product quality and longevity of supply are in accord with industry requirements. The OLED technology used in the new modules has been derived from a commercial, wearable product range, and we fully expect demand for the new industrial grade products to be strong.”
The micro OLED modules feature I²C, 3/4 wire SPI and 8-bit 6800/8080-series Parallel data interfaces and support 3V logic operation. The modules are fully compatible with the industry-standard SSD1306BZ graphics controller. TAB (Tape Automated Bonding) construction is used in the manufacture of the OLED modules, and an operating and storage temperature range of -40°C to +80°C enables reliable operation in extreme environments.
Compact size, low power and exceptional optical performance ensure that the new micro OLED displays are ideal for portable and wearable applications in industrial, commercial, leisure and medical market segments. All of the new micro and round OLED display modules are now available from Midas Displays sales channel partners and franchised distributors.
