Reach Launches 5.7” Touchscreen Display Modules

Products give engineers a way to quickly add an interface to medical or industrial products that demand long-term availability. New off-the-shelf modules offer proven hardware and full software support to speed development and reduce production risk.


Fremont, CA  May 5, 2016 — Reach Technology, Inc. today announced two new Linux Touchscreen (linuxtouchscreen.com) 5.7” modules that help engineers add user interfaces with scrolling, sliding, transparencies, 3D graphics, and animations. Like all Reach products, these modules are designed for long-term availability with a 10+ year processor life and a multi-sourced, industry standard LCD form factor.

The  5.7” Standard Resistive Display Module (Product Part: 51-0406-181) and 5.7″ Standard PCAP Display Module (Product Part: 51-0406-191ES) use VGA (640×480) LCDs with LED backlight and come with integrated touch.
