Angst+Pfister AG, based in Zürich, Switzerland, a leading supplier of mechanical and electronic components for industrial and medical OEM markets, announces the acquisition of the temperature and pressure sensor business of Smartec BV. After 35 years in sensor technology Smartec’s owner and CEO Rolf de Boer, decided to take his well-deserved retirement and sold the business to Angst+Pfister. Smartec BV successfully supplied MMS Electronics Ltd over the last 25 years with digital temperature sensors, humidity and pressure sensors. MMS Electronics is looking forward to working with Angst+Pfister AG and continuing the UK distribution of Smartec sensors products. The flagship sensor of Smartec is the SMT172 an ultra-low power, fully calibrated, high accuracy digital temperature sensor. Using the most recent advances in silicon temperature sensing the SMT172 has an absolute inaccuracy of less than 0.25ºC in the range of -10 ºC to 100 ºC with full temperature range of -45ºC to 130ºC.
Display supplier "ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY" changes after 45 years their company name to "DISPLAY VISIONS". The change of company name points out the fact that the focus of their activities has been on intelligent displays and HMI solutions as well as customer-specific displays for more than twenty years. The product spectrum ranges from simple seven-segment low power displays to sophisticated smart colour touch panel displays. Display Visions manufacture displays for Industrial automation, Information Technology (IOT), Medical instruments and Commercial application with long term product availability. MMS Electronics in Leeds is the UK authorised supplier for Display Visions. Samples and small quantities can be order easily, online from the MMS Electronics webshop. For production orders we can supply to a regular schedule or hold inventory to call off as required.
Our display supplier Display Visions was awarded the SPDEI 2021 Award in Paris. The SPDEI trophies are awarded to recognize the best component manufacturers of 2021.

MMS Electronics has a very small IPS TFT colour display available. With just 0.96 inches diagonal, the EA TFT009-81AINN LCD colour display is perfect for use in handheld devices. The high brightness and the wide viewing angle stability of the IPS panel guarantee excellent readability, even under poor light conditions. The display measures 27.9x13.5 mm (0.96") with 80 by 160 pixels. A small but high-resolution graphic displays for colour or black and white designs. The powerful LED backlight gives the display a brightness of up to 500 cd/m². As a result, the display is readability in direct sunlight or under dazzling operating lights. With IPS (In-panel-switching) and AACT (All-angle-colour) technology the colour and contrast remain stable even at very oblique viewing angles. With these small dimensions the display is particularly suitable for use in wearables, measuring probes, sensor products and handheld electronic devices.
The onboard graphics controller ST7735S offers three or four wire SPI. The release of EA TFT009-81AITC with a capacitive PCAP touch panel is also planned. The touch-panel coordinates are read from the I²C interface.
These IPS TFT graphic displays from Electronic Assembly / Display Visions have long term product availability and highly recommended for use in new designs. To speed up the design Arduino sample code for the EA TFT009-81AINN is available.
