Digital View Inc. has introduced its HE-1920 fully-buffered multi-sync interface controller that provides analog and digital connections for large format, high-definition TFT LCDs. The LCD controller features wide operating temperature and voltage ranges, heightened shock and vibration tolerance, and conformal coating for extreme environment applications.

The HE-1920 is the latest addition to the company's HE series of COTS LCD controllers designed to comply with the strict standards required for harsh environments encountered in military and rugged industrial applications. Designed to aid manufacturers building hardened panel display systems that require advanced capabilities such as high resolution and high definition, the HE-1920 features wide tolerance power supplies (12Vdc 25 percent), locking connectors and low-mass tantalum capacitors for maximum tolerance to shock and vibration. It also features Mil-spec silicon resin conformal coatings, a laboratory-certified operating temperature range of -40C to 80C, and calculated MTBF in excess of 100,000hrs, with full RoHS compliance.

The HE-1920 provides analog and digital connectionsPC, DVI and video interfacefor a wide range of TFT LCD panels up to WUXGA resolution (1,920 x 1,200 pixels). It features full screen image expansion of lower resolutions, image flip and invert functions, and onscreen PIP functions.

The LCD controller also features a 16bit ITU 605 bus connector designed to permit developers to independently create proprietary hardware interfaces for the controller. The interfaces provide software managed selection pins to manage multiple input configurations. Typical examples include optical inputs, additional ports, and HD-SDI.

The HE-1920 measures 179mm x 120.4mm (7inch x 4.74inch), and comes with a full three-year warranty.

Pricing starts at $269 each in quantities of 1,000. Delivery is off-the-shelf.
