Embedded SMART Displays

What is a SMART Display?

A SMART display (uniTFT Smart Display) is a versatile and interactive screen that integrates computing capabilities, enabling users to interact with content, access information, and control connected devices, often found in various applications, including homes, businesses, and industrial settings.

An industrial embedded SMART display, also known as an industrial touchscreen display or human-machine interface (HMI), is a specialized type of touchscreen monitor designed for use in industrial settings. These displays are distinct from consumer-grade screens because they are engineered to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments. Industrial embedded DWIN SMART displays offer a combination of durability, intelligence, and adaptability that makes them essential tools in manufacturing, automation, and various other industries.

Industrial embedded SMART displays have emerged as a critical component in this digital transformation. These displays are not just monitors; they are intelligent tools that empower industries to monitor, control, and manage operations like never before. 

Industrial Range

The CDS Smart display (sometimes referred to as intelligent displays) range starts at a 1.3” 240×240 resolution size and goes up to a 32.0” 1920×1080 full 2K HD resolution encompassing all the key display sizes in-between, with bar (stretch) and circular variants also available. Our partnership with the TFT display manufacturers allows us to offer a strong stable supply plus the ability to bring new displays and display technology to the embedded systems market very quickly and competitively as part of CDS’s Smart Display range. The displays can be supplied both with and without touch functionality with both resistive and capacitive technologies available, a full custom cover plate service also available.

Many of the displays within the range utilize the IPS display technology producing wide viewing angles and an all-view viewing direction, this enables the displays to be used in both landscape and portrait orientations without the loss of image quality or colour. All the displays feature both FLASH and RAM memory with the standard COB variants also including an SD card slot, communication to peripheral devices is provided by integrated serial interfaces, TTL/RS232/RS485 and CAN plus a Wifi-10 interface is also available on some models.


  1. Rugged Design: SMART displays are built to withstand harsh conditions, ensuring they function reliably in industrial settings where consumer-grade displays would fail.

  2. Customization: We can tailor our SMART displays to our customers specific needs, from screen size and resolution to the inclusion of specialized sensors and connectivity options.

  3. Intelligence: These displays often include embedded processors and memory, enabling them to run applications and process data directly on the device, reducing the load on external systems.

  4. Touchscreen Interface: The intuitive touchscreen interface makes SMART displays easy to operate and allows for quick interaction with data and controls.

  5. Remote Monitoring and Control: Industrial embedded SMART displays can be connected to the cloud or an industrial IoT (IIoT) platform, allowing for remote monitoring, diagnostics, and control of equipment and processes.

  6. Enhanced Safety: In sectors where operator safety is paramount, SMART displays can provide real-time alerts and warnings, reducing the risk of accidents.
