element14 launches ARM-based SBC with touch-screen display for HMI applications

(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Collaboration between Embest and element14 brings the best of design and distribution to launch a touch-screen LCD with multi-functional embedded hardware 20 January 2014, London, Premier Farnell has launched the EDM6070AR-01 fully-integrated Embedded Display Module(EDM) that integrates an ARM-based single board computer(SBC) with a 7" LCD and touch-screen assembly. The multi-function embedded EDM is based on the ARM9 AT91SAM9X35 industrial processor from Atmel.

The EDM6070AR-01 is designed as an all-in-one solution and is ideally suited for a variety of embedded control HMI (human machine interface) applications including industrial control terminals, intelligent instruments, medical products, network terminals as well as data acquisition and analysis. The module has a plate with display, connectors and place for the Mini6935 module with ARM microcontroller.

The module is supplied with a Smart-Home demo application with an intuitive smart-LED controller allowing the user to set independent light levels in each room, smart-climate controller allowing the user to control temperature and humidity throughout the house and smart-multimedia allowing the user to play streamed audio files into any room and manage surveillance cameras.

The unit is ready for product integration and software development, and it can easily and quickly become a finished product helping to reduce time-to-market and development costs.

David Shen, Chief Technology Officer at Premier Farnell, said: "We are pleased to offer these ready-to-deploy solutions that enable embedded engineers to easily include touch-screen functionality in their products. This approach reduces development time and can be adopted for products in industrial, consumer electronics and telecommunications."
