Pervasive Displays E-paper Design Tools

E-paper EPD PICtail™ Plus Daughter Board

The e-paper EPD PICtail Plus Daughter Board is an extension board for the Microchip Explorer 16 Development Board. It is designed to kick-start e-paper development with Microchip's Graphic Library and PIC® microcontrollers including the PIC24, dsPIC33 and PIC32 families.

The on-board 40-pin FPC connector connects to Pervasive Displays e-Ink based EPD panels. The driving circuit supports driving 1.44 inch, 2 inch and 2.7 inch EPD panels via the SPI interface. All three sizes of EPD panels ship with the EPD PICtail Plus Daughter Board. The sample Microchip MPLAB® X IDE project provides source driving waveform including global update and partial update with command interface to update content on the EPD panel, making it easy to start working with EPD applications.

Embedded Wizard - GUI Solutions by TARA Systems

Embedded Wizard is TARA Systems embedded GUI technology that enables you to create platform-independent and high-performance Graphical User Interfaces (GUI), even on resource-constrained microcontrollers. With Embedded Wizard Studio’s fully integrated IDE, developing GUIs for embedded devices is easy. Sophisticated utilities, like the object browser and the ‘element inspector’, provide you with an easy overview of the application structure and give you quick access to its members. You will find everything you need in one familiar place. To document the structure of your GUI application, Embedded Wizard can automatically create Microsoft® HTML help files (chm), which are especially helpful when transferring your project to colleagues, customers or third parties for maintenance and modifications. Embedded Wizard Studio facilitates the handling of different themes, layouts, screen resolutions and color schemes within one GUI project.

Graphical User Interface Development with Microprocessors

Microprocessor (MPU) users have a wide choice for developing GUIs.  Many people use the simple graphic functions that are built into the Linux® operating system. For an improved GUI experience, you can choose a graphic framework from companies that support our SAMA5 MPU family with SDKs, such as The Qt Company or Qt Project, Crank Software, Segger emWIN, Express Logic GUI-X, TouchGFX, Embedded Wizard and others.
