The 7-inch EA eDIPTFT70-ATP made by ELECTRONIC ASSEMBLY sets new design standards for interactive operator control systems. Brilliant display quality,
800 x 480 pixel resolution, built-in intelligence and innovative, user-friendly features provide the ideal platform for development of interactive controls. For example, a virtual keyboard can be embedded directly into the graphic display, and the display is also capable of providing acoustic feedback to the user.
These features make it much easier to program an interactive user interface. A virtual keyboard can be generated on the touch panel screen with just a few instructions which resemble high level language programming code. The keyboard functionality includes an Edit Box which enables users to view what they have entered and make any necessary corrections prior to submitting the data.
The acoustic features of the display are equally impressive. Developers can provide a broad spectrum of acoustic feedback ranging from simple key clicks to brief jingles which act as warning or status messages.
Programming is very simple and straightforward. Powerful instructions which resemble high level language code enhance productivity during solution development and reduce time to market. Lines, areas and bar graphs can be defined and displayed with a single instruction. Defining the appearance, size, placement and function of keys and buttons is equally fast and easy.
The EA eDIPTFT70-ATP offers a number of other features which support user-friendly programming and sophisticated image design including a flash memory to store fonts, images, animation and macros. Eight pre-defined fonts are provided. A set of parameters is available for scaling and modifying the fonts. TrueType fonts can also be imported. Input data can be displayed on pre-defined virtual analogue instruments which can be tailored to suit the needs of the user. Built-in macro pages and string tables are provided to support multiple languages, an important consideration for equipment, machinery and systems which are destined for export markets.
An evaluation kit is available to help you get your EA eDIPTFT70-ATP development project started. A USB port provides connectivity to a PC where actual software development takes place.
Integration of the intelligent display into a device or system controller is very easy from the technical standpoint. Three different ports are available for communication with the system. Only one supply voltage is needed. A mounting bezel is available as an option. The product series includes 6 other displays in sizes starting from 3.2 inches.
