Engineers tell us getting a custom LCD display module up and running from scratch is time-consuming and expensive. There is a steep learning curve, it takes their focus away from their core competencies, and little changes cause big problems related to maintaining the solution over time. The risk of higher development costs, missed production targets, and maintenance headaches cause them to look for something other than a home-grown solution. So they turn to Reach Technology off-the-shelf modules.
If our standard modules are not a fit, we can provide customized ones if you have sufficient production volumes. There are two ways to create custom modules:
- Take a standard display module and decide what parts you do not need. We will depopulate the board and do a custom build. The production volume requirement is greater than 500 units. If this is the case, you can start with a standard development kit with all the features and figure out which parts of the module you need to use.
- We can design a custom display module if the standard display modules do not suit your needs, either because you want a different panel, or need an interface we do not include. Custom module design requires a production volume of 1,000 units or more.
