New RGB Backlight LCD Displays

  Published: 31/03/2021

Midas Displays are pleased to announce the addition of more character, and graphic options to our RGB LCD range. These LCDs show an appearance of black characters, or dots, on an RGB backlight, which allows the user to choose any single colour for the backlight. The most recent additions are a new size 2x16 character module, two 4x20 character displays, and a 240x128 graphic option. More options are being developed and will be available early in 2022.

LCDs are traditionally offered as one colour text, or graphic, on one colour background. These new displays give the user much more freedom with how the display will look in their application, as the backlight on these displays are full colour RGB. The ability to choose any single colour as the backlight at a time also gives the user the option to use the display to suggest status within an application, such as hot or cold.

Mark Lovick, Sales Manager, Midas Displays said, “Our RGB LED backlight displays are fantastic products. They enable the user to show a traffic light style status on their product, for example red for warning, and green for okay. RGB backlights can also be used to create any colour backlight appearance, which means the customer is no longer fixed to a single colour background once they have purchased a certain display. We are pleased to now offer several character options, as well as a couple of graphic displays, within the RGB backlight range. We expect these displays will be very popular, and many more will follow”.

The 2x16 option, and the 4x20 displays are chip-on-board construction, making them easy to mount, and have both English, and Japanese, font sets. These character displays all have Parallel interface. The 240x128 graphic option is also chip-on-board construction, and Parallel interface.

Midas will add to this selection of RGB LCD displays soon. Please see the current range listed below.
