Module integrates ARM-based SBC, touch-screen display
Premier Farnell has introduced the EDM6070AR-01 fully-integrated embedded display module (EDM) that integrates an ARM-based single board computer (SBC) with a 7" LCD and touch-screen assembly. The company says the multi-function EDM, which is based on the ARM9 AT91SAM9X35 industrial processor from Atmel, is designed for human-machine interface (HMI).
The EDM6070AR-01 is designed as an all-in-one solution and is suited for a variety of embedded control HMI (human-machine interface) applications, including industrial control terminals, intelligent instruments, medical products, network terminals, as well as data acquisition and analysis. The module has a plate with display, connectors, and place for the Mini6935 module with ARM microcontroller.
The module is supplied with a smart home demo application with an intuitive smart LED controller allowing the user to set independent light levels in each room, smart-climate controller allowing the user to control temperature and humidity throughout the house, and smart-multimedia allowing the user to play streamed audio files into any room and manage surveillance cameras.
The unit is ready for product integration and software development, and it can easily and quickly become a finished product helping to reduce time-to-market and development costs.
David Shen, Chief Technology Officer at Premier Farnell, said: "We are pleased to offer these ready-to-deploy solutions that enable embedded engineers to easily include touch-screen functionality in their products. This approach reduces development time and can be adopted for products in industrial, consumer electronics, and telecommunications."
The EDM6070AR-01 is available at $179 with the 7" LCD. The CPU module without the 7" LCD is also available for $69 (Mini6935). Both are available from Farnell element14 in Europe, Newark element14 in North America, and element14 in APAC.
