Display Interfaces

The last ten years or so have seen great developments in the area of electronic displays, driven largely by advances in mobile phone and LED technologies. What used to be considered a luxury is now mainstream. The volumes are so high now on mobile devices and LEDs that prices have become economical for everyday products.

This has also made multilingual interfaces possible, where the linguistic differences in the interface are simply stored in on-board memory, or even avoided completely through the use of appropriately designed icons.

mSemicon specialises in the following display technologies:

LCD - Liquid Crystal Displays

  • Colour LCD displays, with or without touch (capacitive or resistive)
  • Monochrome LCD displays
  • Alphanumeric displays, with or without backlighting
  • Custom LCD displays

General LED displays

This refers to simple displays where LEDs are used as indicators, for example, to indicate that an electronic device is “ON”.

Software and drivers

Sophisticated displays require on-board firmware in order for them to operate. mSemicon writes this software in house.
