Energy Micro Offers High-End Touch Graphics Solution For Energy Efficient MCU Applications With TouchGFX
Energy Micro has partnered with Mjolner Informatics to demonstrate a smartphone-like graphical user interface running on its EFM32 Giant Gecko microcontroller. This demonstration, developed using Mjolner's TouchGFX technology and featuring full touch control, can be seen on Energy Micro's booth at Embedded World later this month. Mjolner will also present a paper in one of the conference sessions at this event to explain more about the features and benefits of TouchGFX for ARM Cortex-M3.##IM
Mjolner's TouchGFX changes all that and provides a framework for developing sophisticated graphics with touch controls that can operate on MCUs such as Energy Micro's EFM32 Giant Gecko. An on-chip Direct Drive TFT peripheral provides unique features that reduce the Cortex-M3 load to close to 0% while running high frame rates on screens up to 3.5 inches.
Jørgen Mygind, from Mjolner Informatics, said, Our TouchGFX framework minimizes the MCU load and memory footprint. The Giant Gecko microcontroller's unique TFT capabilities such as hardware alpha blending, in addition to the low-energy performance these MCUs are renowned for, enables us to provide smart graphics on ultra-low power platforms.
Andreas Koller, VP of Worldwide Sales at Energy Micro said, We've all come to value simple and intuitive touch controls but previously these required MCU performance that could not be justified for most industrial applications. Now with TouchGFX we've shown what can be done using our EFM32 Cortex-M3 MCU, enabling leading-edge product designs that continue to provide our customers with low-cost, low-energy solutions.
Embedded World 2013 takes place in Nuremberg, Germany from 26-28 February. Energy Micro is in Hall 1 on Booth 523 and Mjolner will be giving its presentation in session 14 of the conference at 11:00 on Wednesday, 27 February.
