Monochrome Graphic Modules
In addition to alphanumeric values on a display, some products require the use of images. If images are required, a graphic module LCD provides the desired solution. Available in Twisted Nematic (TN), Super Twisted Nematic (STN) and Film Compensated Super Twisted Nematic (FSTN), graphic modules provide a variety of display options.
TN displays are very cost effective but have a lower level of multiplex ratios when compared to the other options. STN displays can be used for larger graphics and have moderate response times. FSTN options give displays an additional compensating film that creates a wider viewing angle and less color shift. All three are quality display solutions and the solution used will depend on the design requirements of the product. Ocular can provide all three options for graphic module LCD displays and will work with your team to decide which solution is best for your product needs.
Since Ocular has been providing LCD solutions for over two decades, a sizable portfolio of reference designs is available. Ocular also provides customizable options, consulting services and a full suite of engineering services including electronic design, mechanical design, industrial design, PCB design and firmware development. Ocular’s design team has developed numerous capabilities including anti-reflective glass bonding for TFT displays that are readable in direct sunlight, high brightness LCD backlighting systems, heater-bonded LCD for systems that must operate at extremely low temperatures, shock-mounted LCDs and encapsulated LCDs for harsh environmental operating applications.

Minimum order quantities apply, contact Ocular for additional information.
|STN||Super Twisted Nematic||STN displays are used for high multiplex (larger graphics) displays with moderate response times|
|GSTN||Grey STN with bluish-black characters||GSTN displays are used for high multiplex (larger graphics) displays, utilizing a different liquid crystal than the STN for more neutral colors|
|FSTN||Film compensated super twisted nematic||FSTN displays add a compensating film to STN technology to attain wider viewing angles with less color shift|
|COB||Chip on Board||With the controller chip on the PWB, a very cost effective solution with good ESD protection is possible|
|COG||Chip on Glass||Chip on Glass construction allows for a compact solution with very high performance|
|COF||Chip on Flex||This construction attains high display performance in very compact designs|
|TN||Twisted Nematic||TN type displays provide the best response time and contrast at a cost effective point but are limited to low multiplex ratios|
