My name is Jean-François Bilodeau and I am an electronic hardware engineer based in Quebec, Canada. I work for Eaton in the substation automation division on products focused on dealing with power management. I have been in touch with Riverdi since 2016, where I bought my 1st display to create an HMI for a digital-storage oscilloscope device targeted for the automotive industry. The quality of the display and the thorough documentation was something that got me attracted to this company. The customer service has always been excellent and very responsive, from sales to engineering request for additional information not usually covered in a conventional datasheet. Since then my cooperation with Riverdi has continuously expanded from using FTDI EVE displays to LVDS and RGB based interfaces to support various use-cases within the clients I work for. Riverdi provides quality displays that I can rely on to create rich and experience-enhancing human-machine interfaces. The versatility of the offering is stunning, and I am confident that they would accommodate a custom request on-demand if needed. From my opinion, what really puts Riverdi beyond other TFT / LCD display companies is the wonderful customer service that puts a personal touch to the business exchanges, plus the fact that they do provides answers in a timely manner. I expect to continue growing my business with Riverdi as time goes and I would sincerely recommend this company to anyone getting involved with a TFT / LCD display.
My name is Hans Hameeteman. I am the sales manager for display products at Adelco Electronics in Batenburg. Riverdi has been our partner since 2014. Working with Riverdi has solved most of ours and our customers’ important problems such as product longevity, high quality, short lead times and dedicated technical support. Riverdi is a unique company that combine high volume production with longevity requirements, excellent quality, short lead times and dedicated support, including assistance with certification etc. During our cooperation, we have repeatedly found Riverdi to be a reliable partner we can rely on, providing very good quality products on short notice at reasonable prices, and a company that is truly responsive to its customers’ needs. I can honestly recommend Riverdi as a reliable partner and supplier of excellent quality LCD displays.

ST cooperates with Riverdi because we believe that such partnership brings value to our joint customers. On top of this, we also discovered that we shared some business visions about how to make it easier and faster to go from the initial stages of designing a product embedding a graphical user interface to a production ready product. The conclusion was that combining the STM32 High performance microcontrollers, with the free STM32 graphics toolchain and Riverdi displays + PCB and then merge all of this into a board support package ready to run TouchGFX, would be a compelling offering.
Designing and developing a product with an embedded user interface (GUI), can be complex, as it involves many building block and disciplines, which all requires expert knowledge. Riverdi offer is covering a lot of them, allowing the customer to focus on the most important part of the development, the GUI Application itself. And remember that this is the face of your product. Choosing such solution, the customer does not need to worry about sourcing components like the display, microcontrollers, memory, etc. or even writing low-level drivers, development the board support package or porting TouchGFX. Its all ready done. What makes cooperation with Riverdi unique is that Riverdi has been able to drive a 1280*800 display resolution in high colors, with a STM32H7 microcontroller and a TouchGFX application showing a smart home UI. This shows that Riverdi is well aware of how to exploit all the capabilities of the STM32 Graphics offering combining hardware and software in a unique solution. From the first business meetings, it was clear that we shared visions of the market for embedded GUIs. And Riverdi proved that they can go from an idea and concept to actual working hardware, very fast.
