7.0″ gen4 Series Intelligent Display Module with DIABLO16 Graphics Controller

The gen4 7.0” 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.

This specific gen4 module features a 7.0” colour TFT LCD display, with non-Touch (D), Resistive Touch (DT), Capacitive Touch (DCT), or Capacitive Touch with CLB (DCT-CLB). It also features a Wide Viewing Angle (WVA) option, giving IPS-like viewing angles compared to a standard TN display. It is powered by the feature-rich 4D Labs Diablo16 Graphics Processor, which offers an array of functionality and options for any Designer/Integrator/User.

The Diablo16 processor features include 16 customisable GPIO, capable of PWM, Serial, I2C, SPI, Pulse Out, Quadrature Input, and Analog Input.

The 7.0” Diablo16 Integrated Display Module features a TFT LCD Display, capable of Touch Detection, microSD memory Storage, GPIO and Communications, and multiple millisecond resolution timers 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.
