We have been developing exciting new Lumineq displays at Beneq, where we continue to combine new display technologies and innovations with improved usability and integration.
Lumineq® free-content matrix in-glass display
Some of you may have already seen our new in-glass laminated displays, for example in Valtra’s SmartGlass tractor windshield, which was presented at Agritechnica 2017.
Sneak peek at Embedded World 2018
And if you dropped by our stand at Embedded World 2018, you got a sneak peek at several of our latest display designs, one of which was our latest addition to the in-glass family, the transparent thin film electroluminescent TASEL® matrix display, code named ‘.100’. This display was also featured at NSG Pilkington's stand at Agritechnica 2017.
A free-content matrix display for easy prototyping
The ‘.100’ is a unique free-content matrix display that serves as a transparent display in window laminates, for example in vehicular windshields and windscreens.
What makes the ‘.100’ matrix display so unique is the ease of creating and testing content. You can now change the display content through its versatile SPI interface. This makes prototyping in-glass-laminated displays incredibly easy, quick, and less expensive than designing and iterating segmented displays in the laminate over and over again.
Change content with a versatile SPI interface
You can create an animation for demonstration purposes in the ‘.100’ display by creating a stack of monochrome bitmaps that are converted to SPI compatible binary files, which are then sent to the ‘.100’ display one by one to create an animation loop. The display’s control electronics provide a full SPI interface for data input for real-life applications.
The ‘.100’ aka ELT160.60.100-07NC
This latest addition to our Lumineq in-glass family does have an official name, too, it’s called the Lumineq ELT160.60.100-07NC as it has 160 pixel columns in 60 pixel rows in the familiar yellow color on a transparent background.
Further, this new Lumineq matrix display is a transparent electroluminescent (TASEL) display without a cover glass (=NC) incorporating thin film electroluminescent (TFEL) technology with a substrate thickness of 0.7 mm.

standard animated demo available in the .100 Demo Kit
Oh, and what does the ‘.100’ stand for? Well, it is the pixel pitch, 1mm x 1mm (the square where each of the pixels sits is of this size). The pixel is rather large, making the display viewable from a greater distance, usually 1-2 meters in a typical off-highway vehicle cockpit.
We have so much more to tell you about our new ELT160.60.100-07NC matrix display, so stay tuned!
