BRIDGETEK ME817EV evaluation board assists with the initial development and prototyping of human machine interfaces (HMIs) based on its object-oriented graphic controller ICs. Featuring firm’s BT817 embedded video engine (EVE) device, product permits users to experiment with the latest generation of EVE technology and get a comprehensive understanding of the breadth of its capabilities. BT817 supports higher resolutions and large format displays, thus creating more compelling and functionality-rich HMIs, with greater visual clarity and enhanced video playback capabilities. Measuring 165mm x 100mm, unit has all the necessary attributes for undertaking development work relating to the graphics, audio and touch elements of the HMI. As well as audio amplification and multi-stage audio filtering features, there is an LED driver which can be used to adjust the display backlighting. Also included is a touch controller that supports 5 simultaneous touch points, plus 16Mbytes of on-board flash memory resource for storing unicode fonts, image libraries, etc.
