Future Electronics – Graphics display dev board provides choice of options for sophisticated HMI designs

pg25_FE

Future Electronics’ Centre of Excellence has introduced the Amber development board which demonstrates several processing hardware platforms and various LCD displays for sophisticated but low-cost Human-Machine Interface (HMI) designs.

Developers using the Amber board can choose one of four microcontrollers from NXP, Microchip and STMicroelectronics, which have integrated graphics controller/accelerator functions.

The Amber board is also supplied with a choice of three industrial, long-term supply and high-quality displays from Tianma, in sizes ranging from 4.3″ diagonal to 7″. The
displays are available optionally with Tianma’s Super Fine TFT technology, which gives an extra-wide viewing angle. The displays are also available with or without projective capacitive- sensing touchscreen capability.

Users can quickly develop advanced, smartphone-like display graphics using the TouchGFX software design tool and graphics library, which is fully supported by the Amber board.
