GLYN Introduces Low Cost Complete TFT LCD Display Solution

GLYN introduces a complete TFT display solution making it easier for its OEM customers to develop products that require TFT displays. This solution includes a GLYN ARM9 CPU module, an optional graphics baseboard with various hardware interfaces, a family of TFT displays ranging from 3.5” to 7”, and a range of software development tools.  GLYN offers a low cost Starter Kit to facilitate product development.

ARM9 CPU Module

The GLYN ARM9 module in SO-DIMM-144 format offers customers with a high-end solution for direct TFT control.  The module has TOSHIBA TMPA900 controller from the ARM9 series, Ethernet (MAC+PHY), USB Device / USB Host, and 256MB Flash / 64MB DDR RAM. The module has a variety of interfaces that are accessible directly for user applications.  The module significantly simplifies the design of a system that has a human/machine interface while still needing a variety of external interfaces. Directly related to the hardware design, different operating system variants are available. For example, a complete free Linux tool chain is one option. Areas of application for the module are battery-operated devices, measurement devices, operating panels, or POS terminals.

A significant feature of the ARM9 module is the integrated LCD controller for STN/TFT colour displays, which can be controlled directly up to a maximum resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels. In addition to the LCD controller, the module has a powerful LCD data processing accelerator (LCDDA-LCD Data Process Accelerator). The LCDDA works independently of the core and the LCD controller, offering the new functions needed for advanced new devices today. These functions can be broken down into three categories: image scaling, image rotation, and image mixing (alpha blending).

User input is entered using the integrated touch screen controller. So the module has all the hardware components you need for a cost-effective design, integrated directly.

•          Processor TMPA900CMXBG, 200 MHz
•          RAM 64 MB DDR-RAM
•          ROM 256 MB NAND-Flash
•          Power Supply Single 3.0V to 3.6V
•          Size SO-DIMM 144
•          TFT-Connector (option)
•          Temp.-Range -20°C..85°C        
•          10/100Mbps Ethernet (MAC+PHY)
•          High-Speed USB 2.0 (480Mbps)
•          Full-Speed USB Host 2.0 (12Mbps)
•          LCD Controller
•          CMOS Camera Interface
•          Several Peripheral Interfaces: UART, SD-CARD, I2C, PWM, Keypad, Digital Audio (I2S), Configurable Serial Peripheral Interface, 4/5 Wire Touch

One CPU Module - One Baseboard – One Cable – Eight TFTs

To accelerate the development of devices based on the TMPA900 module, GLYN offers a TMPA900 Module Starter Kit. The kit provides the entire set of technology needed to implement a display application, together with the user interface software required. In addition to the module itself, it includes a baseboard in Europe card format, which is naturally also suitable for production use and also available individually.

The baseboard provides the SO-DIMM-144 connector, 5 - 35V power supply, GLYN TFT Family Concept Connector for 3.5” to 7” TFT display, two SD card slots, plus various interface connectors (JTAG, USB host, USB device, Ethernet, UART, audio in/out). 

A 3.5" LCD touch screen from our EDT OEM line up (see figure) is also included in the Starter Kit. With the connector provided on the baseboard, any TFT in our family concept can be connected directly. To make the board useful for additional displays, all display signals are output through a single terminal strip.

LIME EVB

GLYN LIME EVB – High End Graphic Controller Board for Evaluation and Full Production Use

The GLYN LIME EVB is a professional, low cost development tool for evaluation of display applications for engineers who are looking to develop their designs quickly and efficiently. The board is equipped with the industrial 2D graphic controller Fujitsu MB86276 (LIME). The LIME-EVB design is fully CE-compliant and can be used for both evaluation and full production purposes. The board measures only 68 X 53 mm and can therefore be integrated into the smallest of applications. With featured BGA package on board, this solution offers designers the facility to work with BGA packages without the need for any additional specialist equipment.

The kit is easy to integrate into existing embedded applications, completely taking over the graphics control. The external MCU host can connnect with the LIME EVB via the 16-bit data bus in multiplexed or non-multiplexed mode. If neither of these is available, the communication can run via the IIC bus. At 400KBit/s, the speed of communication is adequate for simple visualizations.

It features 8MB of SDRAM Graphic memory.

Another advantage is being able to drive up to two displays independently with a maximum resolution of 800*480 and single display up to 1280*768.

Integrated on the board is a Micronas VPX3226 that converts incoming video signals to the ITU656 signal, allowing up to 4 video inputs to be sequentially displayed. The LIME continuously processes this stream, and is able to scale it and patch it into the displayed image. The applications of the function are very far-reaching, including vehicle reversing cameras or industrial equipment surveillance.

The programmer is provided with an API, which is similar to the Open GL Standard. This user-friendly tool is quickly mastered. While the API is currently available for FUJITSU MCUs, GLYN has also prepared a wide variety of utilities for other MCUs, together with base-level initialization, using the C programming language.

Typical applications for GLYN LIME EVB:

Automotive
• In-dash navigation
• Infotainment systems
•  Configurable instrument panel
•  Heads up display

Marine
•  Fish finder
•  Navigation

Other
•  Medical Instrumentation
•  Industrial automation

LIME EVB – A perfect solution for your Graphic Display Designs – Available now from Glyn in starter kit version and comes completely with hardware description and connection overview.

The version approved for production use can be purchased at special prices – we look forward to receiving your enquiry!
