With its rich feature set, the EA eDIPTFT57-A intelligent display from Electronic Assembly is the ideal choice for implementation of interactive control in mechanical engineering and industrial electronics applications.
The high-contrast color screen, which measures 5.7 in the diagonal, has LED background illumination and a resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. Its most important feature, however, is the built-in intelligence which greatly facilitates integration of the display modules into the application. The Evaluation Kit, which is tailored specifically to this display, makes development work even easier.

Electronic Assembly supplies the kit to speed up the commissioning process and facilitate familiarization with the world of intelligent displays. It includes everything needed to get started including an evaluation/programmer board, EA eDIPTFT57-ATP color display, USB cable, touch panel, plug-top power supply (with international adapters) and a mini DVD containing software, documentation and sample macros.

The evaluation board has a USB port for communication with the PC. Interface boards with RS-232, RS-485, I²C and SPI interfaces for communication with the host are optional features but they are nevertheless included with the kit. An array of LEDs provides information about data traffic and the status of the digital outputs of the display. Two potentiometers and eight buttons are fitted to the evaluation board to emulate sensors, switches or relay contacts in the target application. The installation DVD contains a wealth of material including the development software, documentation on the different displays and a variety of sample macros and layout templates. There is no need for time-consuming graphics programming. Icons are provided in the source text editor to incorporate other programs such as compilers, terminal programs, bitmap editors and an editor to generate virtual instrumentation.

The touch screen, which has a buzzer to confirm inputs, can also group controls on the display to create a high-quality user interface.
