Embedded Graphics Products

Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) are an essential part of many Human-Machine Interface (HMI) designs. Well-designed and easy-to-use GUIs that enable users to control their electronic devices and manage data communication can build brand confidence and equity. Because GUI requirements vary by application and budget, we offer fully integrated, external controller, and Low-Cost Controllerless (LCC) graphics solutions to provide flexible and reliable options for your next design. 


Solutions for Graphical Displays

Integrated Graphics Controllers

Push the boundaries and deliver high-performance and advanced GUIs by choosing one of our microcontrollers (MCUs) or microprocessors (MPUs) with integrated graphics controllers. These devices provide dedicated logic for advanced display control and graphics processing to deliver simplicity, low overall cost and higher performance for applications that must impress the most demanding users.

Low-Cost Controllerless (LCC) Graphics

An LCC graphics solution enables direct drive from a PIC32 or SAM MCU’s Parallel Master Port (PMP), External Bus Interface (EBI) or Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) port  to the parallel interface on a controllerless graphics panel.

External Graphics Controller

Our 16-bit and 32-bit MCUs can work with an external graphics controller to support larger screen sizes or more advanced graphical features when using MCUs without any integrated graphics capabilities. The free-to-use MPLAB® Harmony v3 embedded software development framework provides optimized peripheral libraries, drivers, graphics libraries and application examples for 32-bit PIC® (MIPS®-based) and SAM (Arm® Cortex®-based) MCUs to support external graphics controllers.
