Are you aware of the ft81x series of the Chip given its ability to mirror the output being successful in being used for heads up display ??

I currently have a newhaven screen despite it being suitable for screen to be readily in direct sunlight or does not have enough brightness to read the text displayed when reflected onto headsup display reflect film on the windscreen in the middle of the day on full sunny conditions

Are you aware of a chip bright enough to be able to display and reflect content into heads up reflective film and allow the content to be clearly and easily read when in brightness of midday sun

I am using the display with arduino board

You have commented

“duty cycle defaults to max, however this ..,.”

Can you please advise how I set this during initialisation

If I do not set it does it mean the brightness level will not be at its max level

Is the brightness level on the 81x chip the same, higher or lower than the 80x chip

No point me moving to 81x chip unless I am sure the brightness can be set max to achieve  readability as head up display on windscreen of car in middle of the day in full sunlight

I welcome your reply and thank you in advance.

Please advise f the ft800 chip is able to display data in mirror so it can read whilst Reflected on a windscreen as a heads up display on a car

Also the pwm value for the backlight is that defaulted to max from the factory ???
