Campbell, Calif. – June 30, 2011 – Amulet Technologies, a recognized leader in high-performance embedded graphical user interface solutions, announced today the availability of two new plug-and-play production display controller boards for driving popular Tianma 480x272 TFT displays. Effective immediately, these controller boards will be available through Future Electronics.
The new Amulet GEMboard™ solutions - CB-TA-TM043NBH02 and CB-TA-TM047NBH01 are designed specifically to support the Tianma 4.3" and 4.7" 480x272 TFT displays. These controller boards feature the GEM Graphical OS Chip™ for color displays. Using Amulet's GUI design software tool, GEMstudio™, user interfaces can be quickly and easily developed to support a variety of embedded applications. These boards can drive 24-bit color, plus 8-bit alpha blending (transparency channel) to drive graphics found in high-end consumer electronic products.
"Adding the new Amulet GEMboards to our line of graphical user interface solutions will enhance the options available to embedded designers in implementing smartphone-like GUIs into their products," states Sean Nantel, Display Solutions Product Manager at Future Electronics. "Amulet's product solutions are synergistic with our mission of providing outstanding technical solutions to our customers."
"Customers are looking for fast and easy solutions for driving displays in production. As these controller boards are used in Amulet's 4.3" and 4.7" Tianma LCD Evaluator Kits, customers can go immediately from prototype to production without missing a beat" states Jim Todd, Sales Director at Amulet.
GEMboard™ customers, like all Amulet customers, can experience the unique benefits of designing their GUI with GEMstudio™, the easiest, fastest and most flexible graphical user interface (GUI) design software in the embedded space. GEMstudio integrates tools for visual layout, interactive PC based simulation, and programming of the flash memory in the target embedded hardware. It's a true WYSIWYG GUI design tool that requires no coding for the GUI design. Using the GEMstudio drag-and-drop GUI development environment for creating color touchscreen human-machine-interfaces (HMIs) for embedded systems allows designers to create smartphone-like user interfaces in days or weeks, instead of months, or years.
Designers can purchase these new boards through Future Electronics. Pricing varies based on volume. For more information, visit www.AmuletTechnologies.com/products/boards.html.
