Typical Application—TFT-LCD Manufacturing
Manufacturing TFT-LCD (thin film transistor liquid crystal display) panels is a complicated and highly technical process. The three major stages in TFT-LCD panel production are the array, LC cell, and module assembly processes. In addition, each finished panel must also pass a series of quality inspection tests, which include defect inspection and lighting tests. The most challenging part of the TFT-LCD manufacturing process is achieving zero fault tolerance for high quality and productivity. One of our customers needed a USB-to-serial solution to transmit data between a host and quality inspection equipment in the TFT-LCD manufacturing process. In such a demanding manufacturing environment, adopting multiple ports and Moxa’s ruggedly designed UPort® 1650-16 USB-to-serial converter proved to be the best option. The UPort® 1650-16 has the following features:
