  • 1x 40 backlit LCD??

    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if there is such a thing and if so where I could find one. The height is an issue here, since I intend to use this LCD as a backup for my TFT when it's folded in the dash, so a LCD which height is about the thickness of my TFT, say a bout 1cm or 0,5 inch...

    cheers!

    Hi Marsjell

    Wow.. now that's gonna be a small display..
    Don't you have any casing around the tft ? I guess it would be a bit thicker when you've got some casing around it..
    Anyway.. them smallest display I found at eio was 30mm wide (2x40) so I guess this is too wide for you...

    However Densitron LCD have got 1x40 lcd's (LM4131) but they're 33mm wide.

    But it sure is an nice idea !
    Keep us informed !

      The casing it what makes it +/- 16mm the TFT is only 8mm, I'm using 2,5mm plexiglas(is this english? ) for the "front" and 4mm for the back. I wanted it all to be as compact as possible... thanks for the link BTW, I looked at a couple of LCD's and I noticed that the case for each LCD makes the outside dimensions about double the viewing height, isn't there a manufacturer who puts the electronics behind the LCD instead of above and below it? I don't care about the thickness of the LCD....

        Timeline has some 1 character high LCDs (both 16 X 1 and 40 X 1) but they don't list dimensions on their site. Might be worthwhile to give them a call.
