Midas Displays offer a range of Organic Light Emitting Displays (OLED) in character and graphic formats which are passive technology. These emissive displays are available in a range of colours on a black background (negative mode). The standard colours are yellow and green (offering 100K hours to half brightness), but options are available in red, blue, white, and RGB. Operating temperature ranges include standard (-40 to +70 deg C) and wide (-40 to +80 deg C). Advantages of OLED technology include very low power consumption, very wide viewing angle (up to 175 degrees), and low profile display height.
The character devices are available in 8x2, 12x2, 16x1, 16x2, 20x2, and 20x4 format with 5x8 dot matrix characters. These 5V modules have built in controllers which offer 4 font sets on 1 device. These include English/Japanese, West European, Scandinavian European, and Cyrillic (Russian). Sizes are all comparable to industry standard LCD character displays.
The graphic devices are available in 50x16, 76x16, 100x8, 100x16, 100x32, and 128x64. These modules have drive voltages of 2.7, 3.3, or 5 volts depending on resolution/colour. All OLED graphic modules in the Midas range have on-board controllers and interfaces include parallel, serial, and I2C. Sunlight readable technology is available.
