The flexibility is due to the manufacturing process that Varitronix uses – the thickness is just 0.56 mm. This extremely thin design also makes the displays very light. Varitronix claims that providing the curvature specifications are not exceeded, the displays are virtually unbreakable.
The Ultra-Flexible LCD Displays use segmented monochrome TN technology and have in-cell touch capabilities. The displays have a wide operating temperature range of -10C to +60C, with a typical supply voltage of 5V. Display modes include Transmissive; Transflective; and Reflective and the inter-connection method is via heat seal FPC bonding.
With international certifications including ISO 9001 for general quality management and ISO/TS 16949 for quality management of automotive products, these Ultra-Flexible LCD Touch Displays are manufactured to very high quality standards, providing durability and long-life. Varitronix is a worldwide, technology-led company with design and manufacturing based in Hong Kong and China, and presents these flexible displays as a very affordable option for designers worldwide; expected applications will include industrial, commercial, automotive and medical markets.
