TFT LCD KITS - Panel + Interface board

CDS offers LCD Panel Kits and Touch Solutions from stock which include Display panels with interface card and Control OSD and Cable-Set, including Embedded Touch Displays and Touch Screen Components. The CDS kit solutions include a display and the driving electronics such as AD board and backlight drivers all in one package optimised for the panel of your choice. Many of the CDS displays are configured with a controller card, and internal cable sets with each of these combinations set up as an LCD display kit which ensures a single part number can be ordered at any time and our customers are guaranteed consistency of supply.

But some of our customers require TFT display kits that are slightly different to a standard kit, with for example a different firmware.  For these unique part numbers are created for each customer’s TFT display kit solution, again ensuring that traceability and consistency is guaranteed within each and every one of our TFT display kits. This could also include the different ways the internal components are handled, e.g. a medical or military company may require 100% incoming testing rather than batch testing and a unique part will identify this requirement and ISO 9001 procedures ensure the process and reliability.

Whatever your display kit solution we can deliver this for you at a very cost effective price. Just contact our technical sales team to discuss your requirements and they will create an optimised solution for you. Even if you are having issues with your current supplier we can often offer lower cost Form Fit and Function solutions to give you that improved performance and solution you require.
