Endrich Bauelemente Vertriebs GmbH (www.endrich.com) is setting a new standard for the connection of display with the intelligent standard interface - iSi50. At the iSi50 interface all signals like data, LED-Backlight and Touch Panel lead out by the flat foil cable.
All displays are equipped with an integrated backlight driver, which can be controlled by PWM or an analog signal. The power supply of the complete TFT modules including backlight and PCAP is done via a single voltage of 3.3V. So an additional power supply for the backlight is not necessary.
Endrich offers the iSi50 interface concept with two different TFT-lines. One line is cost-optimized and for the industrial sector and the second line is designed for sunlight readable High-End-Displays with a brightness up to 1.000 cd/m².
The sizes 3.5”, 4.3”, 5.0”, 5.7” and 7.0“ are available since January 2016. Also each size is available without touch panel, with resistive touch panel or with capacitive touch panel (PCAP).
Furthermore all modules of the iSi50 interface concept are compatible to each other. Hereby the compatibility refers not only to the different sizes, but also to the two display lines. Those features are really unique on the market and offer a big benefit, especially for manufacturer of products for different performance levels.
Together with our industrial partners Endrich took special attention for a simple mechanical mounting. This means, the control board on the backside of the TFT is mounted dimensioned so that the display with a surrounding frame can be very easily mounted into the housing.
Additionally the connector on the backside is always arranged horizontally to the display centre. This means, the position of the slide plug must not be altered if a customer plans any size change of the display. So the customer saves additional costs for an additional PCB layout. The new generation of a projective-capacitive touch-panel is based on the mutual capacitance-technology. All PCAP-sizes are equipped with an integrated controller on the flat foil cable. This PCAP IC belongs to only one IC family. If customer would like to change the TFT size incl. PCAP, just small software adjustments are necessary. Also the sensitivity of the sensor on the PCAP controller can be adjusted, which is a special feature of this generation. By default, the touch surface is closed to the display outside edges.
If desired, the protective glass can be made customized and optically bonded to the display. In addition, the glass coatings "antireflective" and "anti-fingerprint" are available.
The entire Endrich range includes displays for a variety of industrial applications, ranging from medical technologies and home automation through to the high-end consumer sector.
Due to the large product range and the comprehensive product-specific know-how of its employees, Endrich is one of the leading display specialists in the central of Europe.
