Amulet develops OS colour chip for LCDs
Amulet Technologies has announced the introduction of its first colour graphical OS chip for LCDs and touch panels, now available in the UK through specialist distributor Advanced Power Components.
Amulet developed the colour chip - the first in a range of new Amulet chips - to enable OEMs to meet rising customer demand for sophisticated and eye-catching interactive graphical displays in such diverse products as home appliances, consumer electronics, medical equipment and automobiles.
Amulet's new colour chip is an 'all-in-one' GUI solution.
It includes all of the hardware and software needed to create and drive colour-rich, compelling user interfaces.
GUI creation is performed in dynamic HTML with simple drag-and-drop authoring tools, enabling designers to create and test the actual production-ready UI before handing it off to engineering for application integration.
Amulet's advanced graphical operating system is royalty-free.
Its built-in microprocessor manages all GUI functions, freeing up the host micro to run the application more efficiently.
The chip also features a power management controller for low power operation.
Amulet's integrated LCD controller supports 24-bit colour and alpha-blending on active and passive displays up to 12in.
The processor supports USB 2.0, TWI, UART and SPI interfaces, and can be directly connected to four-and five-wire resistive touch panels.
Amulet offers the chip in two packages: 208-PQFP and 225-ball LFBGA.
Graphic formats supported include PNG, GIF and JPEG and GIF animation.
