Visual TFT is a standalone application used for rapid development of graphical user interfaces for TFT displays. Software generates code compatible with mikroElektronika compilers: mikroC, mikroBasic and mikroPascal, for all suported MCU architectures: PIC, dsPIC30/33, PIC24, PIC32, AVR and ARM. Software implements intuitive environment and many drag-and-drop components which can be used for building applications easily and fast.

In a wide portfolio of development tools for displays from company Electronic Assembly can be found evaluation boards for development of applications with eDIP displays family, including a connectivity via all common industrial interfaces.
Everyone who already ever designed his own development board knows, that it takes a lot of time to design, construct and assemble such a board. That´s why a ready-made development board at an affordable price is always a big simplification. EA EVALeDIP320-TFT70 development kit is a beautiful example of such a set, as it provides an immediate access to a full display functionality and it comes rich-equipped. At the same time it meets a criterion of an acceptable price, because the difference in price of the development board and the display itself is approx. 50 Eur only.
EA EVALeDIP320-TFT70 enables to develop applications in an elegant way and to use all possibilities of 5.7“ and 7“ Electronic Assembly displays. The development kit contains an evaluation board (USB), 7″ display with a touch panel, CD with SW and drivers, 5 small PCBs enabling a communication through industrial interfaces (RS232, RS485, I2C, SPI and RS232-CMOS level), USB cable and a line adapter. The development kit enables to also develop applications, which use input/output pins of the display – 8 push-buttons and 2 trimmers enable to control I/O pins and simulate analog signals, while 8 LEDs indicate logic levels at the corresponding outputs. Another LEDs indicate data traffic and a beeper/ loudspeaker serves as a touch feedback. An advantage of Electronic Assembly displays is, that black-anodized aluminium frames (bezels) are available for many types.
Further information will provide you the EA EVALeDIP320-TFT70 and EA eDIPTFT70-A datasheets. A 5.7” display will be available in the nearest period. In case of interest in Electronic Assembly products, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org

LG Display has announced a 5-inch, full HD LCD panel for smartphones – the highest resolution mobile panel to date, giving a clear indication that the 720p display on your current top-end smartphone won’t reign supreme for long. This new, 5-inch Full HD LCD panel is a step forward from the existing mobile display technology and is based on AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) technology. It features a 440ppi and 1920×1080 resolution, providing, for the first time, Full HDTV quality on a smartphone. We had first carried a story about AH-IPS displays, way back in May 2011 and LG had announced then that they were indeed developing AH-IPS panels for smartphones. Here’s how AH-IPS improves on the existing technology.

uLCD-14 replaces the previous model uLCD-144. The new type remains a full software compatibility, that’s why if you already have an application designed for uLCD-144, you can use them without any modification.
The only main change is the connector, instead of the original 1×9 THT pin header a new 2×5 SMD pin header is used with an added +5V output through a protection schottky diode. The new uLCD-14 module, also marked as uLCD-144-G2, features the same excellent properties like other members of uLCD family.
Properties of the module are mainly determined by the used Goldelox chip, able to work in a slave, as well as stand-alone mode. It is also possible to use the 4D-Visi graphic development environment, considerably simplifying and accelerating a development of graphic applications. A detailed description of features common to all 4D Systems modules you can find in our article. Detailed information will provide you the uLCD-144-G2 datasheet.

nabil’s blog: Bike Computer V0.1 Build - [via]
I’ve build the first prototype of my bike computer and have been developing the firmware for a couple of weeks now. Everything except the temperature sensor, accelerometer, servo headers, and Li-ion fuel gauge have been populated.
There have been a few minor electrical bugs like forgetting resisters for the ISP programmer, but nothing too difficult to fix for the next prototype. The bigger problems have appeared in the software world. First, the I’ve filled all 32K of the ATmega memory mainly because of lengthy sensor configurations, USB libs and FATFS. Second, RAM has become an issue when processing things like NMEA strings or drawing complex graphics. I’ve realized there is no point in having a vibrant TFT LCD screen if the 16MHz ATmega can only achieve millisecond refresh rates, which is why I’ll probably switch to some ARM processor for the next prototype. Maybe I’ll go with the STM32F4 series.

This cute pocket oscilloscope is a perfect companion to your tool box. For beginners, its a good starter scope – it is not as complicated as a benchtop scope so its easy to use. For advanced EE’s, its useful as a scope-on-the-go, for field-debugging, when you don’t want to drag your scope over, or when a floating-ground is needed (it will naturally do ‘differential’ measurements as long as its not plugged into a computer USB port). It’s not a terribly fast scope, best used for signals up to 100KHz, and it is only a single channel, but we still find uses for it all the time, especially with analog projects!
- Portable and lightweight, only 76 grams and 95mm x 62mm x 13mm
- 320×240 Color TFT display
- Built in Lithium polymer battery, USB rechargeable
- Waveform storage and playback to microSD card slot (microSD card is not included)
