The company says that, “ since its launch on the smallest display sizes, the semi-custom service has been very popular, allowing many designers to transform their system with a colour display instead of a mono character unit. There are a great many applications where a standard TFT won’t fit – for example, in rack mounted equipment where there are height restrictions. Yet the cost of a custom display is prohibitive unless volumes are exceptional. Our semi-custom service provides a very economic way forward.”


andersDX semi-custom service is based on a novel manufacturing process. Customisation is carried out at an ISO9001 accredited site, with the appropriate clean room facilities. The entire process, including resizing and the addition of a backlight and touch interface, are carried out at a single site. The NRE costs are a fraction of those associated with a full custom display and the minimum economic order is low.


On this service, the company has 2.8 in., 4.3 in. and 7 in. colour TFT displays and is in the process of developing a 10.1 in. display. Customers can have these displays cut to their specified height, and add touch control, FPCs and a backlight to their specification.


The company adds, “It has been shown again and again that the user interface has a huge impact on the user’s perception of their equipment, and is a real differentiator in the market. The andersDX semi-custom service allows customers to transform the user interface, adding a colour graphics display of exactly the same size as their existing letterbox character module. It also gives the opportunity to introduce touch control and other enhancements.”
