Smart-Touch LCDs from Saelig
Programmable touch-screen LCD.
Pittsford, NY — Saelig Company Inc. has introduced ezLCD compact Smart Touch LCD modules, aimed at speeding time-to-market for products requiring an interactive color graphics display. The all-in-one modular design combines a color LCD, touch screen, control electronics, memory and I/O, with an easy-to-use USB-programmable firmware environment for quickly creating a graphic client or a standalone intelligent display.

According to the company, ezLCD-301-QK is a rapid, cost-effective way to implement a touch screen color LCD into virtually any application. The 2.6-in. (66mm) display (400 x 240 pixel), coupled with USB 2.0 and RS-232/TTL interfaces, allows access to a powerful built-in microcontroller and 4MB of flash memory, which can store fonts, bitmaps, and macros.

Operating on +3.3V, ezLCD-301-QK consumes less than 100mA, and operates over a 0-to-60°C temperature range. Simple ASCII-command-driven software is provided (Windows 7, XP, Linux, and OSX Operating System compatible) which allows users to quickly customize macros, graphical objects, fonts, images, and interfaces, dramatically shortening design cycles.

A serial terminal program allows for rapid development under Windows, Linux, and OSX operating systems. Ready-made software widgets include Analog Meter, Buttons, CheckBox, Dial, Radio Button, Slider, and many others. Macros and GUI Widgets can create a working user interface prototype within hours. ezLCD Smart Touch LCD modules work with any microcontroller, including the popular Arduino boards. With the EarthSEMPL macro language and built in I/O, ezLCD modules can replace panel meters, simple HMI, operator panels and temperature controllers. ezLCD-301-QK provides a comprehensive, easy to use starting platform for designing compact graphics into an existing or new product application. A custom USB cable to interface with the module's 16-pin connector is also supplied. ezLCD modules make a visually appealing alternative to character modules, vacuum florescent displays, STN passive matrix displays, or more complex graphic LCD products.
