Hi,

I´m looking for a big graphic display (around 3'') with a wide temperature operation. It has to be Sunlight Readable. It will be in a bike.
I´m thinking in a 4D System or GLDC (KS0108 or T6963). I would like something with controller,because I would like to control with Mega.

¿Any recommendation? I´ve looking CrystalFonz displays...
If it´s possible with color feature, it´ll be fantastic...


Thank you


Regards,



Igor R.

Exist others cheaper, it depends of  the model...

I´m not sure that a TFT or Oled will be sunlight redeable...When I try to see something in my PDA outside, it´s difficult...

It will be fitted on a motorbike... I need something redeable with high bright, wide temperature range and the electronic inside must resist vibrations.

Graphics LDC are the best in price... for sure....But nowadays are quite "retro" design.....je,je,je   smiley-grin

Are you expecting to run your bike for that many hours?  If you average 25 miles per hour you would be able to travel a distance greater then that to the moon and back before you used up the 20k hours.

It used to be that the blue's had a life of about 20k hours but nowadays the blue is more like 40k hours and the other colours much higher. It depends if you go for a decent display or not... Depends on price a little bit.

Anyway, what's wrong with a dot graphic display? who doesn't like a bit of retro?  8-)

For temperature you could just use a 20x4 display and use some 4 line text for BIG NUMBERS...

Mem,You don´t have to think only in application with the motorbike in movement....

It´s not to show temperature... I need that the display works in a wide range of temperature... like -20 to 80ºC.

The application will be like an onboard computer.... smiley-wink

Of course, with a gldc an a little of design could be something cool

20k operating hours in my car would take 60 years  smiley-wink

Anyway, if you do decide to go retro, I have a nice GLCD library for you to use:  http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/GLCDks0108  smiley

Normal commercial electronics is only specked for 0 to 70C. Going outside these ranges costs you a lot more. A military specified display is going to cost about 5 to 10 times more than a commercial display.

I´ve found CrytalFontz which has -20 to 70ºC.
With T6963 controller and 160x128 (101 x 82 mm).
It seems good!!

Any experience with this company? Another similar?
