Founded in 1991, Powertip has grown profitably through the years to become one of the true leading manufacturers of Liquid Crystal Display technology. Today, Powertip employs some 3,300 manufacturing and engineering personnel within its factories located in Taiwan and China. With a total of 90,200 square meters of manufacturing space, Powertip is fully equipped to handle the market needs for Colour TFT, chip-on glass (COG), chip-on film (COF), tape-automated-bonding (TAB), chip-on board (COB) and surface-mount technology (SMT) LCD modules. With over 79 different formats (comprising of over 1000 configurations) of standard LCD module, Powertip is uniquely positioned in the marketplace to offer a total display solution to its customers, very few manufacturers of both monochrome and colour LCD modules have this diversity of standard products.

Powertip’s focus for their TFT LCD range has been the small to medium sized displays, with displays from 1.44″ QQVGA to 12.1″WXGA.  They have built up a comprehensive range of modules with many different options within the same module format, with each one offering a solution to meet a specific need or application.

TFT LCD Modules with 4-Wire Resistive Touch

Many applications can benefit from the use of touch, the simplest and highly economical option is our 4-Wire resistive technology. Whilst resistive technology may not seem as glamorous as the latest Capacitive sensors it still offers good functionality for many of today’s demanding applications.  Powertip’s range of modules featuring resistive touch is again very comprehensive with options from a 2.0″ QQVGA to a 7.0″ WVGA with differing specifications to meet most applications and requirements.

 TFT LCD Modules with Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP)

Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP or PCT) offers superb performance in today’s industrial and commercial applications. Powertip’s PCAP touch offers up to 10 simultaneous touches, this allows the user to utilise the pinch n pull and the swipe gestures that today’s smartphone and tablet users come to expect from their touch technology. The range of sizes and options available follows Powertip’s philosophy that one product does not fit all applications so there are a number of options and specifications available on nearly all sizes . Sizes start at 2.0″QQVGA through to 12.1″WXGA and cover all the popular industry standard footprints.

  • High Transmissivity of +85%
  • Up to 10 simultaneous touches
  • High reliability
  • Durable and scratch resistant
  • Customisable glass cover lens
  • Flush fitting for seamless front bezel designs
  • Unaffected by glass safe solvents and cleaning chemicals

TFT LCD Modules with HDMI Input

Powertip have also developed a small line up modules with an embedded HDMI board secured to the rear of the display with the same footprint as a Raspberry PI/TinkerBoard allowing for easy integration.

  • The HDMI board also includes LED backlight and Vcom circuit support.
  • Multi-touch Capacitive Touch options are available with a USB interface for quick and easy installation into you application.
  • Brightness can be adjusted by touch gesture or by GPIO PWM control.

A-Series, 4 in 1 TFT Modules

This range of TFT LCD comprises of 3.5″, 4.3″, 5.0″ and 7.0″ panel sizes all with the same pin assignment and connection method. All the panels include the V-Com circuitry and support a wide analogue input voltage of between 5V ~ 15VDC.  The panels are equipped with a long life LED backlight providing a brightness of 1000cd/m² (non-touch variants) which is suitable for full sunlight viewing. All sizes can be supplied with either a 4-Wire resistive or the latest GG or OGS Projected Capacitive touch sensors, including borderless options.

  • Multiple panel sizes, 3.5″ (320×240), 4.3″ (480×272), 5.0″ (800×480) & 7.0″ (800×480)
  • Pin Assignment and connection method common to all sizes.
  • V-COM circuitry built-in.
  • 5V~15VDC power supply input.
  • LED backlight connections on the panels FPC
  • Long life LED backlight, 50khrs
  • High brightness LED backlights, 1000 cd/m² (non-touch variants)
  • 4-Wire Resistive and GG/OGS Projected Capacitive touch sensor options (including borderless)

The A-Series, 4 in 1 range is also supported by Powertip’s M4 evaluation board which is compatible with all panels within this range.  The board includes the ARM Cortex-M4 (STM32F429IGT6) processor and has all the common connections required. The TFT LCD connects directly to the RGB display connector on the M4 board so there is no need for  interim cables for both the panel and touch sensors, this enables developers to be up and running and evaluating our panels in a very short period of time. For further information on the M4 Evaluation board please contact us at sales@craftdata.co.uk or call 01296 332000.
