Overview

Noritake offers a variety of TFT modules that can meet your application needs.

  • GT-1P
    DVI & Touch via USB

    • Available Screen Size
      5″, 7″ and 10.1″
    • DVI
      (Digital Visual Interface)
    • HID Compliant Touch
    GT-1P

    SBC/PC ready. GT-1P is suitable as an embedded touch monitor for PCs or single board computers (SBC) that have digital video output (HDMI Type A connector). GT-1P supports EDID and touch via USB is HID compliant, so plug and play is possible.

  • GT-CP
    Command Controlled

    • Available Screen Size
      4.3″, 5″ and 7″
    • Command-based Operation
    • On-board Memory
    GT-CP

    GT-CP offers intelligent command operation that works with high or low-end microcontrollers and can easily be used in an embedded GUI application. Powerful commands minimize host overhead and improve development efficiency. Built-in memory allows for quick and easy access to multiple language font tables and user-defined interface graphics.

  • GT-EP
    iDev OS Host System

    • Available Screen Size
      4.3″ and 7″
    • On-board Memory
    • SD Card Expansion
    • Peripheral Device Control
    GT-EP

    GT-EP integrates an embedded controller and a touch TFT module that works with iDev OS, so the display itself controls the embedded GUI application. Various peripherals can be controlled using the module’s built-in functions (SPI, PWM, etc.). All features can easily be programmed with the iDev TFT development environment.

How it’s Possible

Compared to existing ITO touch panels, Noritake FLETAS® Metallized Projective Capacitive Touch technology achieves superior sensitivity. This includes its ability to operate with thicker cover glass and gloves.

Dry Condition Comparison

Noritake’s FLETAS® Touch Panel has a greater signal to noise ratio than that of ordinary touch panels. As seen in the animation below, the touch signal does not get anywhere close to the surrounding noise on Noritake touch panels. Ordinary touch panels have a lower signal strength and surrounding noise sometimes comes very close to the same height as the touch signal. This can result in a false touch.

Wet Condition Comparison

Noritake’s FLETAS® Touch Panel has a greater signal to noise ratio than that of ordinary touch panels. As seen in the animation below, noise reduction also helps Noritake touch panels perform in a wet environment. Minimal noise promotes a very stable and easy to detect peak point.
 
 

What are the different types of touchscreens and how are they used?

Touchscreens are input devices such as touchpads positioned over the TFT panels that allow user input and function display. There are various types of touchscreen technology available nowadays, and we described what are the differences and how they used, in the web article. Please click here to see the web article.

Cover Glass

The touch panel on the front of this product uses an ultra-thin glass sheet. Do not apply excessive force to the touch panel directly. It is designed to be used behind a protective and transparent front panel or cover glass.
Additionally, an air gap between the touch and front panels should be designed in to allow for deflection.
