The LED backlights are available in various colours including yellow/green, and white. Where enclosure height is limited we can offer modules with low profile bezels. Operating temperature ranges include standard (0 to +50 deg C) and wide (-20 to +70 deg C). Interfaces are standard 8 bit/4 bit but we can offer some displays with 4 bit only or I2C interface. Dot gaps are available in industry standard 30 micron or high quality 15 micron. The majority of character LCD controllers are HD44780 equivalent and include on board character sets, the standard being English/Japanese. Other character sets available on command are western European, eastern European, Scandinavian European, Cyrillic (Russian), and Hebrew/Arabic. We offer 5V operating voltage as standard but for low power options, we can offer 3V and 3.6V types.
