CSTNCanada has introduced a new 128 x 64 pixel chip-on-glass (COG) display with white LED backlighting. The new 2.7-inch LCD module uses COG technology to reduce its size and cost.

COG technology allows for a thinner display since it doesn't require a PC-board or bezel, said the company. This display is suitable for text and graphic applications in handheld portable devices where size, power consumption, and quality are concerns.

The new DG-12864-COG-WFBLW-H display offers a 9.6:1 contrast ratio and a viewing angle of 40. The operating temperature is -20C to 70C. The efficient three-diode white LED backlight allows the module to be used for both indoor and outdoor applications. In power saving sleep mode, the display uses less than 2?A. The display supports eight-bit parallel or serial interfaces and has a built in dc/dc converter for ease of design integration.

Samples are priced at $10.25. Production pricing is $8.75 in quantities of 10,000.
