Display Object Recognition

Seek out your ‘phygital’ with object recognition over PCAP

When you want people to interact differently with your touchscreen, what do you do? For example, you might want to bring the benefits of a product to life using an interactive table, where different aspects of the user experience are displayed as you move it around the surface. Or perhaps you have a touch display that would be more user friendly with a ‘dial’ function? Not easy to achieve with just fingers. How do you bring the physical and digital together in an easy and fun way?

Change the way you source displays with SimplePlus

Four whole months. Imagine what you could achieve in this time, while you waited, patiently for your touch displays to arrive. In the past, this was normal. For a simple display stack with generic coverglass and display drivers, an engineer could expect to a sixteen-week lead time. Sometimes more.

Wireless PCAP Technology: efficiency comes cable free.

Cables. We expect, like us, you have a love/hate relationship with them. On the one hand, for most applications when a TFT is connected to a touch, the complete Stack is connected over a short cable to a board. And that works just fine. After all, for this kind of application, a wireless PCAP makes no sense.

Bringing clarity to the world of MIPI and LVDS

Where displays are concerned, plenty of acronyms fly around. MIPI is one, LVDS and RGB/TTL are some others. You’d expect all three to be completely different, but life is never that precise, is it? For example, MIPI displays also use LVDS standards and as puzzling as that might sound, there are actually some fairly sound reasons for it.

Spotlight on Embedded – July 2023

Welcome to the July issue of Avnet Embedded Spotlight. After the announcement from Intel that they are stopping direct investment in their NUCs, we’ve got a range of alternatives for you. We’ve also got some brand-new boards for you. Here’s what we’ve got for you for July…

Landscape or portrait, MipiPlus 5.5” fills the gap

Thin, light, low power, low brightness, our industrial customers have fully embraced the MipiPlus range for its excellent value and our ability to integrate it into their products seamlessly. So, it will come as no surprise that we are able to offer another new addition to our ever-growing portfolio.
Medical displays

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.
