Featured Project: Patterned By Nature

This was a project commissioned by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh, NC and was the result of a collaboration between Hypersonic, Sosolimited and Plebian Design.

10 feet wide by 90 feet in length, this impressive LCD glass panel ribbon, composed of 3,600 panels of individually dimmable LCD glass, winds through the 5 story atrium of the newly built Nature Research Center. The purpose of this exhibit is to celebrate an abstraction of nature’s complexity represented through patterns.

Designing Your Custom LCD

Orient Display has supported customers with custom LCD displays for tens of thousands of types and models for automotive, appliances, medical, smart homes, point of sales, industrial advices, etc. Whether your design requires a small custom LCD display glass, or a fully customized LCD module, or custom monitors and displays equipped with complicated embedded control board with touch panels, our experienced engineers in North America, Europe or in China factory will assist you in designing your customized displays.

The process begins with you providing your ideas of the custom LCD display.

Procedure of a Custom Display or Custom Touch Panel Project

  • Project requirements are provided to Orient Display;
  • Orient Display customer service sends quotation to you (might come with technical suggestions according to your targeted applications). The time will depend on the complexity of the project and the time to source components, normally, it takes 1-3 days for custom LCD glass panels, 2-5 days for custom LCD display modules or touch panels.
  • Tooling order and NRE payment are submitted;
  • Orient Display engineers provide custom LCD display counter-drawings for you to approve with your signature on the drawing. The drawings might be modified several times until the designs are fully achieved your technical requirements. There can be a lot of technical discussions at this stage. The time our engineers take to arrange drawings also depend on the complexity of the project. Normally, it takes 1-3 days for custom LCD glass panels, 2-5 days for custom LCD display modules or touch panels.
  • After your drawing approval, Orient Display will start to make samples or prototypes for you to test. The lead time also varies depending on the production complexity and component/material sourcing. Normally, it takes 4-6 weeks for custom LCD glass panels, 8-10 weeks for custom LCD display modules or touch panels.
  • After your sample / prototype approval, Orient Display is ready for production. Orient Display welcomes trial production between the prototypes to large scale production so that you have the opportunity to fully test the custom LCD display or touch panel to run well in your designed products.
  • Congratulations! You have accomplished the journey of the idea, design, prototype and production in the market. The journey can take from 3 months to 3 years. Whatever the voyage, Orient Display’s engineers, customer services are proud to be part of your design. Our happiness is based on your success.

Custom LCD Glass

  • Determine the type of project: An existing project, drop-in replacement or new design so that we will know the flexibility of our ideas/opinions into the design.
  • Dimensions (Specification / Drawing / Sketch of the LCD, if available). If it is a drop-in replacement, it is great to provide files in dwg. or dxf. format.
  • Type of Application, Target Price (If you have a cost goal to achieve), forecast quantity.
  • Other technical considerations:
    • Connection (pin, zebra, heat seal or FPC);
    • LCD Mode Preference if you have an idea or let us to decide (TN Positive/Negative, STN Positive YG, STN Negative Blue, STN Positive Gray, FSTN Positive, FSTN Negative, FFSTN Negative);
    • LCD Polarizer Type Preference (Reflective / Transflective / Transmissive);
    • Temperature range (standard for indoor use or wide for outdoor use);
    • Power budget if any;

Custom LCD Display Modules

  • Determine the type of project: An existing project, a drop-in replacement or a new design so that we will know the flexibility of our suggestions into the design,

Custom Color TFT LCD Module

  • Fully custom made TFT LCD display module can be very expensive, the NRE ranges from $80,000 to $1M depending on the size and the resolution of the LCD display and the generation of the production line the LCD display to be produced. For over 99% of our projects, we are talking about the modifications of the standard TFT LCD display. There are a lot of standard color TFT displays available in the market. You are highly likely to find one matching your requirement. If you can’t find a suitable one on our website, please check with our engineers, we have a database in factory with much more types.
  • Determine the type of project: An existing project, a drop-in replacement or a new design so that we will know the flexibility of our ideas/opinions into the design,
