MikroElektronika, the embedded solutions company that dramatically cuts development time by providing innovative hardware and software products based on proven standards, is unveiling a portfolio of over 100 smart display development boards that enable multimedia applications to be built simply and quickly.

The company's mikromedia product range represents industry's largest portfolio of smart displays and includes a wide range of sizes, styles and touchscreen options.

Mikromedia TFT LCDs are offered from 2.8in diagonal (mikromedia 3 types) to 7in diagonal (mikromedia 7), with or without bezels, to suit a wide variety of microcontrollers including Microchip PIC, STMicro STM32, TI TIVA and NXP Kinetis. Devices include capacitve touchscreen functionality and DSP-powered, embedded sound CODEC IC, delivering a complete solution for the rapid development of multimedia and GUI-centric applications.

However, mikromedia displays are not limited to multimedia-based applications only. USB connection, digital motion sensing, battery-charging capability and the inclusion of an SD card-reader broadens the wide range of applications that are supported. Standardized pin headers expose available MCU pins to the user, adding another layer of application flexibility, and by using MIKROE's mikromedia shield products, connectivity can be further expanded using mikroBUS sockets, additional connectors, peripherals, and more.

Comments Nebojsa Matic, CEO at MIKROE: “Mikromedia smart displays can be implemented directly into any project, with no additional hardware modifications required. For many applications, the addition of a stylish enclosure will turn a mikromedia development board into a fully functional, high-performance, feature-rich device. A choice of powerful MCU platforms provide sufficient processing power for the most demanding tasks, ensuring fluid graphical performance and glitch-free audio reproduction.”

MIKROE releases a new product every day at 10am, and many leading microcontroller companies including Microchip, NXP, Infineon, Dialog, STM, Analog Devices Renesas and Toshiba now include the company's mikroBUS add-on-board standard socket on their development boards.
