Frida Electronics Shenzen Ltd

Products

Small-sized LCDs: 1.4in, 1.7in, 3.5in, 4.3in, 7in and so on but they also can do 1024x600 and 1280x800 in up to a 10.1in IPS with LVDS. The smaller LCDs have driver ICs which have their own on-board memory, which makes them perfect for connecting to slow-speed ECs (including Arduino-style PICs and ARM Cortex M0/3/4 such ATSAM and STM32). Some of these have dual or triple configureable interfaces ("8080" style MCU, RGB/TTL and SPI) which makes it possible to potentially connect to two different input sources: one slower-style low-power EC (over SPI) and a faster more powerful SoC (over MCU or RGB/TTL) without requiring a multiplexer IC.

Their factory is 5,000 sq.m and they assemble the LCDs on-site, saving quite a lot of money compared to other LCD manufacturers as a result. MOQs are typically 1k and they can currently manufacture around 13,000 units a week.

Notes

Turns out that the slow internet speed between China-West is causing huge problems both ways. Copies of the datasheets for Frida's more popular products are here, please contact them direct for pricing (which is extremely good, please though remember that they manufacture on-demand, so you will need to respect the MOQs: if you want one-offs or very small quantities please do not waste their or your time, please look elsewhere).
