Custom Display Solutions Built to your specifications

Written by: Review Display Systems Ltd | Published:

Here at RDS display systems are an integral part of us, we have been designing and developing custom display solutions and systems for many years. Working closely with clients we develop systems that suit their exact needs for an HMI or system with considerations for functionality, the limits of the settings, its facets and how these will affect the display itself.

Aesthetics also come into the equation, a front panel formed purely of glass looks smart and can be shaped, need a graphic on the bezel, no problem with our ability to print and it gives the display an edge over the standard black bezel templates. We also need to consider the environment where the display will be used. Does it need to be robust, are the conditions hazardous, is sunlight a problem. These days displays need to also have a strong body, be embedded with smart display features which can include virtual keyboards and swiping mechanisms.

So, what goes into a Display System?

The Baseboard

RDS has a comprehensive range of embedded systems and boards, from single board computers, wide temperature SBCs and modules which come in many form factors including PICO-ITX, Mini-STX, Micro-ATX and ATX together with a full range of processors. Controller options are also available from chip only to dedicated boards capable of supporting most common operating systems. Utilising bespoke ARM based systems, we can include a range of add-on features including Wi-Fi, Ethernet, CanBus etc. Custom design of boards to any shape or size using selected components to meet specifications are all assembled and tested by us.

  • Custom PCB’s of any size
  • ARM based solutions
  • Bespoke electronic design
  • Custom BIOS work to ensure the longevity of operation
  • Custom baseboard design for SOM-based CP solutions
  • Custom power and cooling solutions
