Additional questions about LCDs: Is 400 nit too bright?
I know I am asking alot of questions regarding LCD displays but it is one of two areas of the system that I feel that my lack of experience will hurt the project if I choose poorly. (So I am asking lots of questions to avoid that!)
I found a 7" LCD Module that comes with everything that I need to make it work (controller, input leads) and am wondering about the specs. I am wanting to ensure that I can see the display during the day so I was told to look for monitors with a higher than 250 nit rating.
Is 400 nit rating too high? What do you guys think of the following specs:
Resolution (pixels): 1440 x 234
Active Area (mm): 154.08 x 86.58
Screen Size (Inches): 7.0" Diagonal
Dot Pitch (mm): 0.107 x 0.370
Color Configuration: RGB V Stripe
Overall Size (mm): 166 x 100 x 6.79
Backlight: "L" Shape CCFL
Input Voltage: 5 VDC
Contrast Ratio: 150/1
Brightness: 400 nit
This is for a unipac UP070W01 LCD module (The vendor that I might purchase from sells a complete kit with everything)
Please share your experience with me. Once I get this down the other area of concern is powersupply including startup and shutdown circuit. Other than that I am ready to go.
These forums are great but there is allot of varying opinions on the two topics that I have questions about and I am trying to narrow it down.
Thanks in advance for all of your help!
