This product features a TFT based graphical display designed for E-blocks, which allows a large amount of data to be displayed to help reduce development time or to increase productivity in projects. The display features 128 by 160 pixels totaling at 20480 individually addressable pixels. There is also a maximum of 65,536 individual colours available for each pixel and a controllable backlight to provide maximum display visibility even in the dark. Internally the display has enough memory to automatically refresh the screen and provide a constant non-flickering display. Only the pixels that need changing have to be written to the display, therefore decreasing write times and vastly improving refresh and animation performance.
The graphical LCD is also available as a standalone module with order code EBM001. This allows users to incorporate the module into their own designs using a simple breadboard and veroboard compatible 2.54mm pitch interface and minimal set of 4 to 6 I/O pins. The display comes fitted to the module circuit board and has an extra metal shield to help protect the display from damage. The display module also features 5V tolerant inputs, allowing you to control the module from a 5V or 3V3 system. Note that the module must be supplied with a 3V3 supply voltage. The SIL headers on the display module are mirrored allowing you to fit the display module either way on the E-block.
