Newhaven Display is an American company specializing in the design and production of a wide range of LCD, TFT, OLED, and VFD displays. The manufacturer is continuously looking for new solutions and is dedicated to developing convenient tools and easily implementable solutions, and to providing support to engineers and programmers.

All these factors have contributed to the creation of two interesting series of displays by Newhaven Display, which are now available straight from our stock.

2.7" OLED touchscreen displays

A new series of graphic OLED displays includes 2.7" modules featuring 128x64 pixel resolution. They are equipped with a factory-installed capacitive touchscreen. As multipurpose products, they can be connected to a control system via a 20-pin flexible flat cable (FFC) or a 20-pin socket. In both cases, the user can construct devices that are capable of communication through a parallel or serial peripheral interface (SPI), compliant with e.g. Arduino modules, as well as almost all, even the least advanced, models of modern microcontrollers. The maximum image contrast ratio reaches up to 10000:1 and is programmable. The color emitted by the monochromatic display can be yellow or white.

The clear display and the responsive touchscreen are a perfect match.

The capacitive touchscreen boasts an incredibly short response time and can detect up to 5 points of contact simultaneously. While designing the module, the manufacturer made sure to reduce the emissions and impact of electromagnetic interference (EMI). The products are mainly intended for industrial control panels, Internet of Things (IoT) applications, smart devices, etc.

3.5" TFT displays with an MIPI interface

The displays are ideal for building handheld gaming consoles

When it comes to compact TFT displays, the 3.5" display size has become a standard. There are many variants of these modules available on the market, however, the solutions from Newhaven Display offer several significant features that are not commonly exhibited by other products.

Above all, the displays are made with the use of IPS TFT technology, which allows for a shorter response time, higher contrast, and a wider viewing angle while displaying more accurate colors (in contrast to "classic" modules). It is also important to mention the resolution of the displays, which is as high as 640x480 pixels. All of these features guarantee that the image is sharp and of exceptional quality.

The manufacturer has also made sure that the displays are convenient to use – the built-in controller makes it easier to control the display via a microcontroller and provides additional EMI shielding to reduce the risk of electromagnetic interference.

The main difference between the old and the new products offered by the supplier involves the implementation of the MIPI DSI bus (Mobile Industry Processor Interface Display Serial Interface), which is a new and fast interface used for communication with microcontroller systems. The standard was designed with these exact display modules in mind. It uses four data lanes for fast transmission of data to the display, ensuring a high refresh rate. Thanks to this, the users can enjoy smoother animations, deeper colors, and improved comfort of use. The MIPI DSI interface also offers reduced image compression and requires less cache memory (buffer).

The display is available in two variants: standard or with a built-in capacitive touchscreen. The products are intended for demanding applications, medical and industrial equipment, and multimedia devices such as video game consoles (e.g. for retrogaming) based on SoC circuits or single-board computers.
