7″ SLCD5+E Resistive, Wide View

Part Number: 51-0325-421

Legacy products are available for existing customers. New modules supersede legacy modules, so they are not recommended for new designs. Reach Technology has no plans to obsolete these products, and will support them, and customers using them into the future. Read more about our approach to Long-Term Supply.

Powered by the SLCD5+E controller:

  • Two serial ports for either RS-232 or 3.3V CMOS. One port can be converted to RS-422 as a manufacturing option.

  • 266 MHz ARM9 Processor. 28MB highly reliable NOR data Flash for user downloadable bitmaps with optional RLE compression.

All 7″ modules feature:

  • Units combine a multi-function processor board and an industrial 7-inch WVGA (800×480) TFT color touch LCD.

  • Memory card slot for added flexibility.

  • Designed for long-term availability with a 10+ year processor life and a multi-sourced, industry-standard LCD form factor.
