The latest revision of video interface has now been launched by Forth Dimension Displays (ForthDD).
The interface with suffix -R5 is now available from Europe’s only LCOS manufacturer, and is capable of driving either the 96% fill factor WXGA microdisplay, or the industry leading 1280 x 1024 pixel SXGA microdisplay.
The -R5 is simply an acronym for Release 5 of the ForthDD microdisplay interface. ForthDD continue to have the second and third release of this interface on their line card with suffix -R2D and -R3 respectively, as well as the -3DM suffix interface (which essentially is the fourth interface release).
The distinguishing feature of this revolutionary new interface is the small printed circuit board, with a footprint approximately one quarter of the size of its predecessor; the -R3. ForthDD have deliberately designed this product to have a reduced footprint and to drive the display directly instead of over a cable. The interface continues to offer only the very best in microdisplay imaging quality, complimented by a more compact, lower power package to further enable the opening of new applications and opportunities.
Initial clients are located in Scandinavia, France and the USA. Each incorporate the ForthDD -R5 system into display and non-display applications alike and these predominantly include instruments from both the scientific and ophthalmic diagnosis industries.
The -R5 also provides the ideal platform for an electronic viewfinder as used in cinematography, military training and medical applications and the sales and applications team are currently hot on the heels of new design-ins being completed in the United Kingdom, France, Germany and Japan.
The -R5 will be featured at the forthcoming I/ITSEC exhibition from the 29th of November – 2nd of December (stand 1772) at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida.
Available now as a development kit and in larger volumes for series production. For more information on the -R5, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
