Reach is easy to work with. There’s a comfort in working with somebody that knows what they are talking about.
We help embedded engineers who need to add a display or touch screen to products quickly and cost-effectively. The engineers want to:
The engineers design a broad variety of products, from hotel room kiosks to medical control systems to tugboat engine monitors. They typically work for manufacturers of custom electronics products including industrial and medical equipment. Customers
Engineers we work with represent the entire spectrum of company sizes, from large organizations, like Steris International, a billion-dollar-plus sterilization systems company, to one-man engineering consultancies. However, the type, size, and duration of the project can determine whether Reach is a match. For example, hobbyists and companies not considering a board-level solution are not a good fit.
Technical support is wonderful. We have asked stupid questions, and they have always been patient and called us back, and that is something we don’t get a lot of from support at a lot of other companies we deal with. So you can give the team a pat on the back for always being there when we have some crazy questions or some problem.
Reach has been involved with embedded LCDs for more than 20 years. We started with monochrome displays, moved up to color STN (passive) displays, and now focus on TFT color modules. Our engineers have vast experience with the complexities of embedded LCD displays, including cabling, signal levels, timing, backlight powering, and dimming. When you buy from Reach, you’re putting our embedded LCD knowledge, experience and expertise on your team. Team
A standard asynchronous serial port connects your system’s microcontroller to the Reach serial LCD controller. Simple ASCII commands are used to draw images, text, controls, and other interface elements, on the screen. The controls report back over the serial line when they are activated or changed. Images are stored on the serial LCD controller in flash memory. How It Works
