3.[RFF700A9-AWH-LNN]7" 800x480 High Brightness, Wide Temperature IPS (LVDS) TFT LCD

RFF700A9-AWH-LNN is a 7” IPS TFT-LCD display featuring high brightness and wide temperature ranges. This TFT module uses IPS screen which allows users to see the display clearly at wider angles. This display also boasts its high brightness 1000 nits at typical value, with high contrast ratio (typical value) 1000:1. With the help of a anti-glare display surface, the screen doesn’t reflect light and preserves better image quality.

This TFT display module uses HX8249-A + HX8678-C driver IC which supports LVDS Interface (Low Voltage Differential Signaling). The transmission technology is mainly developed to reduce the shortcomings of high power consumption and large EMI electromagnetic interference when transmitting broadband at high bit rate, so that it can effectively achieve low noise and low power consumption.

The VCC voltage of RFF700A9-AWH-LNN ranges from 2.7V to3.6V; typical value is 3.3V. The module works within temperature range from -30℃ to +80℃; storage temperature is -30℃ to +80℃.

4. Market Status: Worldwide Electronic Component Shortage to Cause Rise in Prices

In 2020, the global electronics industry goes through unexpected disruption since the COVID-19 pandemic. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has pushed businesses go for remote working, and this has made cloud computing solutions have been played the most important role in maintaining operation business continuity. The Covid-19 pandemic has permanent affected on the way we work, as well as the way we live.

The pandemic is fuelling the growth of the Stay-at-Home Economy, Remote Working, medical equipment and 5G applications new demand. Furthermore, the automotive chip crunch began in late 2020 after the worldwide car market recovered faster than expected. A resurgence of demand for automobiles in Q4 2020 took the industry by surprise. A confluence of several events brought the industry to the brink of exhausting its manufacturing capacity especially for chips (ICs) from Q3 2020 till now and expected will continue to the end of 2021. The status bring out a big problem was that strong demand for semiconductor chips used in PCs/laptops, Cloud datacenters, AI clusters, games, medial and crypto-currency mining was already constraining the industry supply chain in late last year.

Unfortunately, these statuses have become a crisis in 2021, the prices of semiconductors are keeping rise up due to shortages in production capacity in comparison to the market demand. And shortages weren’t the only problem -- so were rising raw component prices. As demand for components rose, and not enough supply, raw material costs increased also the lead-time become longer. The imbalance between supply and demand has inflated the cost of the raw materials by two to four folds. Furthermore, the Taiwan dollar soars around 5% against US dollar from 2020 which also increased our cost. Raystar regrettably is no-longer able to absorb these extra costs by ourselves. We kindly need your understanding to share these burdens during this challenging time. Recently, our prices updated and longer lead-time reflects the current market situation. If there have further questions, please contact your Raystar Sales for further discussion.
