Rapid response and smooth graphics

Inelco Hunter has introduced the Powertip STM32 range of touch display modules incorporating an STMicroelectronics MCU chip with Arm Cortex-M7 480MHz core. The modules suit applications where rapid response times and smooth graphics are needed. For example, instrumentation products can plot graphs quickly, without jitter, while supporting full MJPEG video playback.

TouchGFX plug-and-play software lets developers define the display’s graphic touch interface quickly using graphic icons from the supplied library stock. Also, custom graphic blocks can be generated or graphics uploaded from external sources.

Inelco Hunter provides its own board support package letting customers develop using STM32CubeIDE or KEIL MDK, effectively turning the display into a standalone embedded module. 

Screen sizes range from 3.5 to 5in with a high resolution and wide viewing angles—typically 480 x 272px with an 80deg viewing angle and 800 plus lumens brightness. The built-in Chrom-ART accelerator saves processing power and frees up the MCU for other applications.
