URT Releases 7” TFT LCD Displays with LVDS Interface

Consumers are demanding more realistic video, 3-D graphics and photo-realistic images in the office and in the home. Solutions exist today to move this high-speed digital data both on very short and very long distances: on a printed circuit board (PCB) and across fibre or satellite networks. Moving this data from board-to-board or box-to-box, however, requires an extremely high-performance solution that consumes a minimum of power, generates little noise (must meet increasingly stringent FCC/CISPR EMI requirements), is relatively immune to noise and is inexpensive. Unfortunately existing solutions are a compromise of these four basic ingredients: performance, power, noise, and cost.
