The latest news from Avnet Embedded.

Is this a true revolution in visual interfaces?

In a world where so many things are declared ‘revolutionary’, we try to exercise caution. But the combination of Ultra-Low Power TFT (Thin-Film Transistor) and Projected Capacitive Touch (PCT™) has opened up new possibilities for energy-efficient human-machine interfaces (HMIs). To us, it feels like the word definitely qualifies here, but we should probably take the opportunity to explain why, how these technologies work, their importance in the market and their advantages over ePaper displays.

Bright, brighter, brightest? Why a display backlight system is more than meets the eye

To begin with, the human eye doesn’t perceive light in a linear way. So, if you’re looking to achieve a super-bright result, your display will need a huge amount of energy – more than double, in fact. For energy critical devices, this often means compromising brightness for battery life and the decision is taken to run with a low brightness display.
