LCD Controller - VP7

LCD Controller

The VP7 is the ideal LCD controller for applications that require high fidelity analog or digital video conversion, re-sizing, and frame rate conversion for resolutions up to UXGA.



Supports standard and custom video formats

Converts a wide variety of video formats including RS-343 to LVDS, RS-170 to LCD, RGBHV to TTL, and custom video formats

Video retiming and reformatting

Video area-of-interest control, resizing, retiming, and reformatting

Video input sync

Supports video sources with sync-on-green and composite video syncs

Programmable power sequence

Programmable TFT power sequencing for unique operational modes


Simulated cockpit displays

Configurable video electronics for simulated cockpit displays

Ruggedized tactical displays

LCD controller for ruggedized tactical displays

Embedded applications

With its low-profile design and locking high-density Hirose connectors, the VP7 is ideal for space-constrained displays

Custom display solutions

Perfect for applications that require a configurable lcd controller

Optimized for Embedded Applications

With its low-profile design and locking high-density Hirose connectors, the VP7 is ideal for space-constrained displays. The RS-232 interface allows easy updates even after the VP7 is installed in your display.

User Programmable

With fully customizable input and output timing parameters, the VP7 can be configured for your unique application. If your display or video input source changes, simply reconfigure the VP7.

Supports Standard and Custom Video

In addition to converting analog RGB for TFT panels, the VP7 is great for digitizing interlaced video formats such as RS-343, RS-170, and STANAG. The VP7 can also be programmed to support custom or non-standard video formats.

Looking for enhanced capabilities? Check out the VP14

If you require higher resolution or other capabilities, consider the VP14 LCD Controller.  The VP14 is the same size, with nearly identical pinout, as our VP7 industry standard LCD controller and includes several enhancements over the VP7.
