4.3″ gen4 Series Intelligent Display Module with DIABLO16 Graphics Controller

The gen4 4.3” Diablo16 Integrated Display Modules are part of the latest gen4 series of modules Designed and Manufactured by 4D Systems.

The gen4 series was designed specifically for ease of integration and use, with careful consideration for space requirements and functionality.

There are two resolution options with the 4.3″ modules, Standard Resolution (480×272) and High Resolution (800×480). Both resolution options have the same touchscreen options mentioned above. High-Resolution models feature -HR in their name. Both are mechanically identical, so Standard and High-Resolution models can be used interchangeably for mechanical mounting solutions.

These specific gen4 modules feature a 4.3” colour TFT LCD display, and come with options for Cover Lens Bezel (CLB), Resistive Touch and Capacitive Touch. They is powered by the well-known 4D Systems Diablo16 Graphics Processor, which offers an array of functionality and options for any Designer / Integrator / User.

The 4.3” Diablo16 Integrated Display Module features a TFT LCD Display, and is capable of Touch Detection, microSD memory Storage, GPIO and Communications, along with multiple millisecond resolution timers, and Audio Generation.

The gen4 Series is 100% compatible with the Workshop4 IDE and its 4 different development environments, providing the user with a wealth of options for programming and controlling their system.

The gen4 series of Integrated Display Modules feature a 30-pin ZIF socket, designed for a 30-pin FFC cable, for easy and simple connection to an application or mother board, or for connecting to accessory boards for a range of functionality advancements.

The gen4 series of modules have been designed to minimise the impact of display-related circuitry and provide a platform suitable for integration into a product. Application boards can sit flush on the back of the gen4 display module if required, as the display-related electronics sit inside the plastic mounting base, leaving the application board surface clear for User circuitry.
