CAMPBELL, USA: Amulet Technologies, a leader in graphical user interface (GUI) solutions, announced the availability of two new plug & play LCD Evaluator Kits for popular displays from Tianma.
Amulet and Tianma have signed a partnership agreement as part of Amulet’s LCD Evaluator Program (EVP), the industry’s first program to provide plug-and-play GUI reference designs for individual LCD displays from multiple LCD vendors.
Prior to the implementation of the Amulet program, designers could not even power up a sample display, much less evaluate it, without spending months designing a new printed circuit board and software.
Amulet’s LCD EVP partners can now provide their customers with near instantaneous evaluation and prototyping of GUI displays, with volume production in as little as one month.
The two Tianma reference designs announced today support either a 3.5” or 4.7” Tianma display. The kits include Amulet’s controller board powered by Amulet’s GEM Graphical OS Chip for color displays, an integrated evaluation board optimized for a specific display, power supply, USB cable, stylus and a 30-day trial license of GEMstudio.
According to Lu Do, Tianma’s Director of Sales and Marketing: “Today engineers need solutions, not components. These new Amulet kits allow our customers to power up our LCDs in about two minutes and then immediately begin implementing a production-ready GUI using GEMstudio. We expect to see customer designs go into production much more quickly.”
“We are excited about the partnership with Tianma. Our program will shorten the typical six to twelve month LCD evaluation and GUI design process to as little as a few weeks for their customers,” stated Jim Todd, Amulet’s Sales Director.
Kits are available for $199 each through Nu Horizons. Display prices vary based on part number.
