andersDX Launches ARM Based, Open Frame Touch Display Platform, Powered by OMAP
Press release date: February 19, 2013
The latest embedded display platform from andersDX – DX2 enables rapid implementation of a small sized, colour, touch, feature rich interface at an aggressive price point.
LONDON, UK – andersDX, a market leading User Interface technology specialist, today announced immediate availability of ‘DX2’, its latest embedded display platform which can be dropped into new or existing device designs to both upgrade the interface and enhance product functionality.
Comprising high-performance resistive touchscreen display options, pre-integrated with a powerful OMAP DM3730-based computer with a host of I/O and comms, running either Linux or Windows Compact 7, DX2 is available in both open-frame or non-assembled versions to ease mechanical integration.
Device designers can choose from either a 5.7” VGA or 7.0” WVGA industrial grade TFT option, both with integrated 4-wire resistive touchscreen. Specially designed for rigorous industrial, HMI and medical use, DX2 embedded displays offer high touchscreen durability, high transparency, and overall excellent optical performance.
At the heart of the DX2 is a powerful, feature-rich, fanless SBC, based on the TI DM3730 processor. 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, DX2 supports 2D/3D graphics with OpenGL, and can handle even the most graphic-intensive applications. DX2 further enhances and enables product functionality through multiple interfaces and communication port options, including UART, SPI, I2C, USB, Ethernet, SD-CARD, WiFi and Bluetooth.
By using the andersDX Software Development Kit (SDK), customers can benefit from creating software applications which interact with the hardware with little or no knowledge of driver development needed, making interaction with the drivers and hardware simple.
DX2 is an ideal solution for companies looking to rapidly add embedded computing power and a next generation colour touch interface without incurring the time and resource costs of developing such an integrated system in-house. Underpinned by long-term availability, outstanding technical support, including online tools, evaluation kits, test applications and dedicated FAE’s, DX2 also offers an upgrade path to the DX4 PCAP touch version plus semi-custom options for specific application requirements.
“Our embedded displays are the winning technical and commercial solution for companies who want to get to market fast, focus resource on their core application and demand a next generation interface to optimise user experience” said Paul Mullen, Sales Director of andersDX. “DX2 offers a lot of functionality in a robust package at a very aggressive price point”
