The hardware

The hardware we have created is a reference design, available as a demo board that includes all the functions that you might need:

  • Compatible with a range of colour TFT LCD's with touch screens.
  • Good communications: RS232 , RS485, CAN bus, I2C/SPI, TCP/IP, Ethernet.
  • Built-in real time clock.
  • Power from 5v to 12v
  • Additional digital and analog I/O for control functions.
  • Powerful ARM processor.
  • Instant ON, unlike some Widows/Linux alternatives.

By picking and choosing only the functionality you need you can keep your hardware costs to a minimum.
