MMS Electronics Ltd provides developers with evaluation board EA 9782-1USB for the small IPS displays from the Display Visions EA TFT product line. This board allows for quick and easy testing and adaptation of small TFT panels size 0.9", 1.5", 2.0", 2.8" and 3.5" including those with PCAP touch function (-AITC).
No specific knowledge of the hardware or software is required. Simply power up the USB on the evaluation board and the connected IPS display becomes active. Additionally when the EA 9782-1USB evaluation board is connected to a Windows PC and the startTFT.exe program is executed (which can be downloaded for free), it opens up more options to display your own images, write text, change orientation and control the brightness. The evaluation board is available on it's own or can be ordered as a bundle including the IPS colour display.

MMS Electronics Ltd has a new square graphic display EA TFT015-22AI from Display Visions. This low power, crisp and bright display with IPS technology offers all-round viewing angle and readability in sunlight.
The active area of the IPS colour display measures 28 mm square with a resolution of 240x240 pixels and 16 bit colour resolution. External module size is 32x35x3.2 mm. The high brightness of 1,100 cd/m² ensures high-contrast display even under extreme light conditions, such as bright sunlight or bright indoor lights. Unlike other LCD screens, the contrast of this IPS panel remains nearly the same at every angle, even at very oblique viewing angles. As this IPS display also uses AACS technology (All-Angle-Colour-Stability) also the colour remains the same at all angles.
EA TFT015-22AI is 16 bit RGB and has an 18 bit or 8 bit parallel and SPI control interface. The supply voltage is 3.3 V and low current consumption of typically 20 to 80 mA making this display ideal for use in battery-operated handheld devices. Wide temperature range from -20 to 70 °C.
This colour IPS panel is also available with a PCAP capacitive touch screen, part number EA TFT015-22AITC. The display with PCAP touch is slightly larger 44x46x3.5 mm and has a maximum brightness of 1,000 cd/m². The diplay with PCAP touch can easily and securely be positioned and glued onto the enclosure surface with 3M tape.
For evaluation, testing or quick connection to microcontrollers MMS Electronics supplies a USB demo board EA 9782-1USB and breakout board EA 9980-TFT. The EA 9782-1USB demo board accepts small TFT panels in size 0.9", 1.5", 2.0", 2.8" and 3.5" including those with PCAP touch function.
This 1.5" display is also available as a Smart EA uniTFTs015-ATC HMI display with PCAP touch, complete with I/O and RS-232, I2C, SPI and USB interface. The EA uniTFTs015-ATC is programmed with the easy to use drag and drop uniTFTdesigner software.
MMS Electronics supplies IPS displays in the following sizes: 0.96", 1.5", 2.0", 2.8", 3.5", 4.3", 5.0", 7.0" and 10.1". The displays are available with or without capacitive, multi-gesture PCAP touch panel.

MMS Electronics has available EA RaPICOTFT009 from DISPLAY VISIONS. This shield, designed for use with the Raspberry Pi Pico microcontroller board drives a 0.96 inch IPS TFT display EA TFT009-81AINN (without touchpanel) or the EA TFT009-81ATC (with PCAP capacitive touchpanel). This small high definition display (27.9x13.5 mm) has a resolution of 160x180 pixels. The high brightness and wide viewing angle stability of the IPS panel guarantee excellent readability, even under poor light conditions. The powerful LED backlight integrated with this IPS TFT display produces a brightness of up to 500 cd/m². As a result, the display is readability in direct sunlight or even under dazzling lights. With IPS (In-panel-switching) and AACT (All-angle-colour) technology the colour and contrast remain stable regardless of the viewing angle.
The EA RaPICOTFT009 is supplied with the software and C library, numerous functions and detailed documentation. Designed as a “shield”, it can be connected directly to the Rapberry Pi Pico.The Rapberry Pi Pico only uses one of the two SPI interfaces, and one of the 26 GPIO pins (GP13) to drive the EA RAPicoTFT009. The touchscreen version EA RaPicoTFT009TC also uses the I²C bus interface and another GPIO pin (GP8) as an interrupt.
The energy-efficient screen (max. 80 mW) is perfectly suited to various IOT applications. The small dimensions the display makes it suitable for wearables, measuring probes, sensor products and handheld electronic devices.
These IPS TFT graphic displays from MMS Electronics by Display Visions have long term product availability and are highly recommended for use in new designs.
