LCD Solutions

Segmented displays are used in a wide variety of applications, ranging from meters to portable medical devices to thermostats to exercise equipment. Microcontrollers with integrated LCD drivers can directly drive segmented displays with letters, numbers, characters and icons. Developed to meet the low power design requirements, these MCUs help extend battery life in end applications. LCD microcontrollers offer easy and scalable LCD solutions.
