Noritake Itron has developed an object oriented language specifically designed to control TFT display modules enabling rapid application development through easy image, text and function handling.

Powerful but Easy to Use Graphic User Interface
Create and link buttons, text, shapes, images and photos via your host interface or use a text editor to create and pre-store them on an SDHC card for transfer to on board flash memory or RAM. Build in functionality behind the page and let the module take care of the navigation and process actions.

Load your Application Pages at Start Up or in Real Time
With 100 pages of display memory, you can set up templates for your complete application. Activate and change the buttons, text and images using unique ‘tag names’ via your interface to reduce host communication and CPU overhead.

Multi-function Touch Screen and Dynamic Layering

Transparent buttons can be positioned over text, shapes and images or even over other buttons to create context combinational functions. All entities can be moved around the page with simple host commands due to the modules ability to retain the complete parametric structure of every item the module creates.

SDHC 4G+ Card enables 8 bit CPU as Host
Unlike many other TFT modules, you can use this module with small CPU hosts by storing complex menus, functions and images on an SDHC 4G+ card or transfer up to 128M byte to internal flash.

Serial Interfacing and User I/O
You can use serial interfaces in Master mode to drive other peripherals and set up I/O to trigger internal and external functionality

Worldwide Character Fonts

Download the languages you need for your markets or create your own image based font solution. Give images names that link them to ASCII values making it possible to show any character shape and size you need.   

High End TFT at a Standard TFT Price.
Volume manufacture brings this product to you with the power of a PC solution but the price of a display module. Take advantage of reduced development time to bring your product rapidly to world markets.

5Yr+ Product Platform
The PCB size, connector positions and TFT height are designed to maintain availability of the product platform for more than 5 years. We reserve the right to change the TFT, touch screen and other components with notification through our distribution channels.
