LC D Evaluation K its

Tianma and Amulet Technologies partner to launch LCD Evaluator Kits for popular Tianma displays
Plug & Play LCD Evaluator Kits for 3.5” and 4.7” Tianma displays brings display evaluation, GUI design and implementation together
Having trouble powering up your sample display? Don’t want to spend months designing a new printed circuit board and software just to evaluate the display? Then these kits are for you! These two new plug & play LCD Evaluator Kits for popular displays from Tianma are part of Amulet’s LCD Evaluator Program, the industry’s first program to provide plug & play GUI reference designs for individual LCD displays from multiple LCD vendors. The kits provide you with near instantaneous evaluation and prototyping of GUI displays, with volume production in as little as one month. The two Tianma LCD Evaluator Kits (EVK-TA-TM035KBH02 & EVK-TATM047NBH01) support either a 3.5” QVGA (320x240) or 4.7” (480x272) Tianma display. Both provide all of the hardware and software required to turn an LCD display into a graphical user interface, including Amulet’s controller board powered by Amulet’s GEM Graphical OS Chip™ for color displays, an integrated evaluation board (EVB) optimized for a specific display, power supply, USB cable, stylus and a 30-day trial license of GEMstudio™. Now designers can simply connect their Tianma display with the controller board in the kit, power it on, and the display is up and running. Using Amulet’s GEMstudio™ GUI design tool, the designer can easily create a GUI for their embedded application. Designs are directly portable to production with no additional coding required for the user interface. This provides a faster time-to-market and reduced development costs. Designers can purchase kits in conjunction with a specific Tianma LCD through Nu Horizons. Kits are available for $199 each. Display prices vary based on part number. For more information, visit www.AmuletTechnologies.com/tianma.html. About GEMstudio™ This patented GUI design tool makes it easy to import stunning graphics and 3D visual effects and bind them to any of the view and control objects in Amulet’s popular widget library. The powerful imageimporting engine allows designers to create graphical content and layered graphic effects in their tool of choice, then simply drag and drop them into a GEMstudio™ workspace for creating reusable, resizable GUI components. The tool comes pre-loaded with a library of expertly crafted images and GUI components that are ready to use out of the box. The page layout and alignment tools can then be used by the designer to drag and drop their way to a beautiful GUI.
