QVGA display for indoor applications

New! 3.5” QVGA display for indoor applications

Our partners at Tianma have just released a thinner, smaller, lower cost QVGA display, ideal for the industrial market, HVAC systems or anywhere that requires a smaller HMI.

Sensitive sensors without the ghosts: Avnet HMIs for surgery are strong, safe and reliable

Capacitive sensors are great – highly reliable and have a wide range of functions. But in the medical world there are some very particular requirements around the service life of such sensitive sensor technologies.

The world isn’t standard, and neither are TARTAN displays!

Stretched displays are readily available in a wide variety of standard sizes (from sizes 23.6” to 58.4”), but our customers frequently require them to be tailored to the specific needs of their applications. So, when size matters, the flexibility of TARTAN, part of the AUO Display Plus series family, could be just what you need.

Upgrade your input and swap membrane keys for PCAP

We are frequently asked if we can replace old membrane keypads with a new PCAP design. It makes sense, as the membrane design can present many problems – particularly as it ages. Simply put, membrane keys are less durable and their PET foil, which controls responsiveness, can and will break with frequent use.

Innolux High Brightness TFT displays: designed for the great outdoors

Plenty of displays need to be able to cope with the varying demands of outdoor use – think EV chargers, construction sites, agricultural vehicles, boats and many more. Displays in these highly variable locations are not only exposed to the elements but feel the full force of heavy duty use every day. As a result, Innolux has launched a new line of high brightness TFT displays that are more than up to the challenge.

PCAP in automotive applications? Yes, we can!

Capacitive sensors are great – highly reliable and have a wide range of functions. You can’t argue with their usefulness in household electronics, especially as panels in such products are becoming thinner and lighter with almost every iteration. In the automotive world, however, this isn’t exactly desirable. In this industry, sensitive sensor technology is subject to stricter requirements, both in terms of service life and environmental influences.

AUO Display+: high, customizable performance without the price tag

Thin, light, cost effective, but with industrial grade reliability and performance, AUO Display+ 15.6” integrated touch solutions are perfect for a range of indoor uses – in-flight entertainment, home automation panels, Point of Sale and kiosk applications.

Avnet Embedded expands its broad SMARC™ module product portfolio to open up new markets and applications

The compact SMARC™ computer-on-module standard has experienced tremendous success, especially for low-power applications in different markets. Avnet Embedded, one of the leading manufacturers of embedded modules, has a broad SMARC™ product portfolio with scalable processor technologies and interface features and offers its customers comprehensive design support.

New optimized solutions for industrial applications

Being a close partner to leading processor manufacturers means that we are among the first to launch a new portfolio of embedded compute modules, based on latest processor generations. These new module families – new COM Express, COM-HPC, SMARC, and OSM – mean that our customers can quickly embed the best computing capabilities into their products.

How we’re engineering touch screens to eliminate ghost touch in mission-critical applications

We build many applications for customers that require absolute precision and reliability for environments where safety and accuracy are important. We have been working with customers recently on engineering touch screens to absolutely eliminate any chance of ghost touch (false signals of touch inputs on a screen). This has required some creative thinking and deep-level engineering from our in-house display experts.
