Some updates, what kept us busy
We kept silent for many months, and we had reason for this – we were working hard on new products and will present them soon in our web store:
- First of all, we are going to offer cheap LCD solution for cheap C.H.I.P. board. We decided that $9 board deserves $19 LCD, and now preparing mass production of 4.3″ LCD with resistive touchscreen that can be directly connected to connector U13 on board with single cable. You will get high-brightness 480×272 screen with integrated touch and backlight control.
- Next news will be interesting for all new Van Goghs and Rembrandts who are in digital arts or just want to draw his cat’s portrait on PC. I’m talking about digitizer with pressure-sensitive stylus. Currently, there are several companies who offer such kind digitizers. The most famous is Wacom, plus several less known companies like Huion, VisTablet etc. Of course, Wacom is the best, but their prices are crazy. You have to sell your kidney to buy their digitizer. We are going to offer 10″ digitizer with gorgeous FullHD (1920×1080) screen based on Wacom technology that you can simply connect to your PC/notebook with HDMI+USB. Then you simply buy Wacom stylus and start your career in digital art. Price will be around $130.
- We finished development of new hardware platform called Gen2, it includes 3 HDMI boards with different LCD interfaces: LVDS, MIPI and eDP. All are compact, have convenient pin-type header for LCD cable, interface protection chips, HDMI audio decode, all required on-board voltage generators (like VSP/VSN for MIPI panels) and backlight control with 1024 steps. Boards will be available for purchase in April with cost $34.95 each. We will also offer medium size (5″-7″) FullHD LCD panels for MIPI board.
- Finally, we will offer new versions of our popular black-frame and open-frame 7″ LCD panels based on Gen2 board. The price will be the same, but you will get more robust solution with long-term support.
