CAMPBELL, Calif.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Amulet Technologies, a recognized leader in graphical user
interface (GUI) solutions, announced today the availability of two new plug & play LCD Evaluator Kits for popular
displays from Hantronix. Hantronix is Amulet’s first display partner in its LCD Evaluator Program, the industry’s first
program to provide plug-and-play GUI reference designs for individual LCD displays. Prior to the implementation of
the Amulet program, embedded systems designers could not power up a sample display, much less evaluate it,
without spending months designing a printed circuit board and software. Amulet’s LCD Evaluator Program 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 Hantronix reference designs announced today support 5.7” QVGA (320x240) Hantronix displays. The kits
include Amulet’s controller board powered by Amulet’s GEM Graphical OS ChipTM, an integrated evaluation
board (EVB) optimized for a specific display, power supply, USB cable, stylus and a 30-day trial license of
“By shortening the typical six to twelve month LCD evaluation and GUI design process to as little as a few weeks,
our LCD Evaluator Program will hasten the adoption of GUIs in embedded systems,” stated Jim Todd, Amulet’s
Sales Director. “Each kit is plug & play with a specific Hantronix LCD in the program. Normally, a sample display
doesn’t do anything, but with our kit, the display is up and running in a few minutes. A production-ready GUI can be
designed in as fast as two weeks using GEMstudio™,” added Todd.
Kits are available for $199 each through Mouser. Display prices vary based on part number.
