Displays are in all shapes and sizes

MIDAS REVIEWNew TFT products exhibited at Southern Manufacturing 2018 by the Midas Group included micro TFTs, high resolution IPS TFTs, portrait orientation letterbox units, and all round view angle (ARVA) types. Standard RGB and mono devices were demonstrated, alongside the display enhancement products such as cover glass, multi-touch capacitive and resistive multi-touch screens (RMTS)

Round and micro OLEDS complement the company’s traditional mono and RGB OLEDs, VA technology LCDs, high resolution graphic LCDs, alphanumeric LCDs, and ultrasonic sensor ranges.

Comprehensive technical assistance services the product development, working closely with the customer to find the best solutions for a specific application. This is supported by a range of interface, interconnection, and driver board products, designed to work with a range of industry standard processors and controllers such as Raspberry-Pi, UC32, and Arduino.

Technical business development managers offer on-site demonstrations for all display products, to reduce a customer’s project concept stage. The UK-based engineering team can support the chosen product evaluation time by supplying technical support including the initialisation code. The company says it aims to minimise a customer’s time and effort in realising a new product and presenting it to an end market.

Midas also offers over 700 lines stocked through distributors Farnell, RS Components, Rapid, and Maplin, making availability for prototyping and low volume production exceptionally easy
