I was interested to see if ChatGPT could help write apps to interface with Digital View LCD controller boards. To set a bit of context, all Digital View LCD controller boards support RS-232, some models have quite extensive command sets with the option for us to add more on a custom engineering basis if needed. I copy pasted the complete RS-232 command set section from the controller board manual to ChatGPT as a starting point. A PC running Windows or a small custom circuit based on a microcontroller are two examples I thought to start with. Having worked through this with various iterations I ..read more

Enabling Innovation in Display Applications In today’s fast-paced digital age, the prominence of digital displays extends far beyond our personal devices. They are instrumental in non-consumer sectors such as medical, transport, defense, industrial, and marine operations, enhancing efficiency, productivity, and safety. However, a central challenge these industries often grapple with is how to make these displays visible from specific viewing angles when it isn’t possible to position the display appropriately. This is where the innovative engineering concept of display redirection comes in ..read more

Maybe I should ask, what are quantum dots, and why should we care that they are in our televisions? I am assuming you have seen the numerous ads referring to quantum dots. Certainly, quantum dots sound like something from science fiction or fancy marketing, but they are quite real and beneficial to displays. What are quantum dots? The simple answer is: quantum dots are nanoparticles that convert light from one color to another, ie from one frequency to another. Why are quantum dots important? Again the simple answer, quantum dots are important because some colors of light are easier to produce ..read more
