EarthLCD offers the ezLCD series of programmable color TFT LCD modules with touchscreens for use in a wide variety of markets, including medical, industrial control, embedded applications, status monitor, avionics/nautical, home appliances, automotive, and digital signage.

The ezLCD modules incorporate an LCD, controller, LCD driver circuitry, processor, and graphic controller. Sophisticated PC-based software tools allow the user to customize firmware, graphical objects and interfaces quickly.

Connectivity for the ezLCD family is provided via serial, USB, I2C, SPI, or parallel interfaces. Users simply upload bitmap images, fonts or icons and control them with a microcontroller or PC. Existing embedded products can add a graphical user interface or status display LCD quickly and with little change to the system.

Highlighted in the series is the ezLCD-101-EDK, which features a bright 10.4-in. 640x480 TFT color LCD. The unit includes integrated touch screen, 400 Nits (Cd/M2), USB 2.0, true RS232 with +12V supply voltage, and is RoHS compliant.

Additional features include SD flash card for graphics expansion, OEM data storage, and logging capabilities. Three other models in the ezLCD family include the ezLCD-001-EDK (2.7-in.), ezLCD-004-EDK (5.6-in.), and ezLCD-104 (5.7-in.). Providing the same intelligent LCD technology, these units incorporate smaller displays and lower supply voltages.

Price ranges from $199 to $629, depending on model.
