andersDX, a developer of user interface platforms, has unveiled the new DX4 embedded multi-touch display platform. Comprising a high-performance PCAP multi-touch display pre-integrated with a powerful OMAP DM3730-based computer, the DX4 provides a flexible and scalable embedded display module that is ready to drop in to new or existing device designs.
The DX4 display platforms include an optional-MVA (Multi Viewing Angle) TFT display, a PCAP touchscreen, and an optically bonded cover lens. Device designers can choose from a 4.3” WQVGA, 4.3” WVGA (MVA), 7.0” WVGA (TN), or 7.0” WVGA (WVA) with both single and multi-touch options. Specially designed for rigorous industrial, HMI and medical use, DX4 embedded displays offer high touchscreen durability, high transparency, and overall excellent optical performance. Moreover, DX4 embedded displays are fully compatible with decorated cover glass or PMMA for enhanced front panel styling, and offer custom cut-out options for speciality functionality.
At the heart of the DX4 is a powerful, fanless SBC, based on the TI DM3730 processor and running Linux (Angstrom). With two CPU cores in a single package – an advanced Cortex-A8 ARM 1Ghz processor for OS and application code, and a TMS32006x DSP processor for dedicated video processing – the DX4 embedded computer supports 2D/3D graphics with OpenGL, and can handle even the most graphic-intensive applications. DX4 customers can also take advantage of multiple interfaces and communication port options, including UART, SPI, I2C, USB, Ethernet, SD-CARD, WiFi and Bluetooth.
The DX4 is, according to the company, the fastest, easiest and most cost-effective way for non-consumer device manufacturers to implement a next-generation PCAP multi-touch display interface, optimized for and pre-integrated with a powerful embedded Linux computer. The DX4 offers long-term availability, outstanding technical support levels both and functional upgrades, and a unique device form-factor independent design.
”The DX4 is our most powerful and versatile embedded display solution,” said Paul Mullen, Sales Director of andersDX. “By delivering a completely pre-integrated solution, with a multi-touch PCAP interface ready to drop into an any design, DX4 speeds time to market, lowers development costs, and raises overall user experience for end-users that demand iPad-like usability,” he concluded.
