December 03, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
These full screen units with thin frames provide, say their distributors, an HMI with real impact. Full Screen OLED pushbuttons from NKK Switches may be used to display a variety of graphics in addition to words and symbols and also provide simple video playback.

The full screen design allows larger displays to be assembled from a number of switches providing an interactive video + HMI display and control panel. The OLED display interface uses SPI Protocol enabling high-speed synchronous communications.

Applications for the OLED pushbutton switch include professional broadcast, audio, video and lighting systems, TV editing suites, air traffic control systems, arcade games and interactive displays for museums and exhibitions.

Features include the smallest class of OLED with 96 x 64 display dots, 50,000 hour lifetime, smooth and positive tactile response in operation, and 16-bit colour display. Multiple units can be combined to form one screen for flexibility in sizes and layouts: highly-reliable dust-proof gold-plated twin contacts have life expectancy up to 1,000,000 cycles.
