The DashDAQ™ is in a class by itself. It is a cross between a data acquisition system, diagnostic tool, automotive gauge display, and a handheld computer. DashDAQ™ uses a high performance processor to run Linux and drive a high resolution color display. Cutting edge design and high volume manufacturing allows Drew Tech to offer the DashDAQ™ technology in a compact and affordable package.

Highest resolution screen

DashDAQ™ features a high-quality TFT LCD that displays full color (16.77 million colors) on a 480 x 272 pixel high-resolution screen. The screen has an impressive 4” viewing area, 320 nits brightness, and a contrast ratio of 350:1. This is the first automotive cabin mounted display to utilize a color screen at this resolution. Many companies advertise large color displays, but just deliver bigger pixels and multi-color backlights on old fashioned, low tech monochrome screens. These are the actual images, shown at the actual resolution viewable on the DashDAQ™ display.

The first automotive platform with limitless capabilities

DashDAQ™ has all of the capabilities listed below built-in, along with the expansion capabilities from its external ports and open platform for developers. It can also host GPS software, multimedia software, videos, and much more.
