Reference Design Platform (ESC Booth #626)

Express Logic, Inc. (San Diego, CA) and Renesas Technology America, Inc. (San Jose, CA) have teamed up to offer a comprehensive reference design platform for powerful, inexpensive media players. The media player platform is based on Renesas’ 200-MHz SuperH SH-2A microcontroller architecture and Express Logic’s ThreadX® RTOS, and enables access and display of media from USB flash drives or SD memory cards. The reference design features a 640x480 VGA display and application software that enables touch screen user interface, image display, and audio file play. Also featured is the ability to display and play PC-compatible image files (.jpg, .bmp) and audio files (.mp3, .wav, .wma, .aac, .ogg). The reference design is aimed at system developers, providing them with a starting point for their products that saves significant time and greatly assists in timely project completion and faster time to market. All software components are available through royalty-free licenses, which means that none of the software adds to bill-of-material cost. The device’s application code is designed to use its floating-point unit (FPU) and on-chip RAM for audio processing, while displaying images from a USB hosted memory stick or SD memory card on a VGA TFT LCD using its on-chip LCD controller. Peripheral drivers and a board support package are available as part of the reference design. For Free Info Visit Here.

Touchscreen Controller ICs (Esc Booth # 316)

Atmel® Corporation (San Jose, CA) has introduced charge-transfer, capacitive touchscreen controller ICs that are suitable for mobile phones and other personal electronics. Highly reliable standard Two Touch™ and Single Touch touchscreen controllers are available. Two Touch controller ICs can track and report one or two simultaneous touches as separate X and Y positions. Common user-initiated gestures, including tap, double tap, flick and drag, as well as two-touch gestures such as zoom in, zoom out, and rotate are implemented in the touchscreen controllers. Users can also implement the touch surface as a combination of touch keys and scrolling devices for additional flexibility – this is configurable by the host processor through the industry standard two-wire, I2C compatible interface. For single touch applications, a unique single layer sensor minimizes the mechanical stack. The reduction of scatter and absorption of the available backlight results in improved light transmission and reduced power consumption. The first Two Touch devices, AT42QT5320 and AT42QT5480, support screen sizes of up to 8" with a 16:9 aspect ratio. The single touch devices, AT42QT4120 and AT42AT4160, support screen sizes of up to 4.3" with aspect ratios of 16:9 or 4:3. The AT42QT5320 comes in a 5×5 mm QFN package. The AT42QT5480 is available in 5×5 mm BGA, a 7×7 mm QFN, and a 10×10mm TQFP package and also supports up to four user-controlled GPOs. All packages are RoHS-compliant. For Free Info Visit Here.
