LCD Displays

LED/LCD displays

Displays, LCD displays, LED displays and other optoelectronics from industry-leading manufacturers are in stock and ready to ship today.

Our electronic displays are available in a number of different technologies including Liquid Crystal (LCD), Organic LED (OLED), Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Vacuum Fluorescent (VFD). Newer 'Active-LCD' displays feature 'Thin-Film-Transistor' (TFT) technology for higher contrast ratios and faster response times, required for viewing moving images. Other significant developments in the display market include the introduction of widescreen aspect ratios, in-built touch screens and LED backlighting.

Farnell's selection of displays range from basic, monochrome, single character 'seven-segment' displays through to full-colour graphic LCD displays. We offer all these display technologies in a broad range of screen sizes, resolutions, and colours. You can also take advantage of our high quality service to help you make the right design choices.
