The LCD Dot Matrix for Versatile Driver Information 860178
This paper describes a LCD dot matrix which is able to display information from various subsystems like
Driver Information System
Service Interval Counter
Today, independent displays are used at various locations within the instrument cluster or in the console. Modern display technology and the down-sizing of electronic packages allow an integration of a sophisticated multi-purpose information system even into the confined space of the cluster.
A modular design for the electronics allows a variation of information content from basic to high-line versions.
Design proposals based on a 32 × 32 LCD dot matrix are shown and an outlook into the future of high-resolution displays will be given.
