mikromedia HMI is a new product line comprising 18 smart displays optimized for use as OEM parts.
We created mikromedia HMI boards because a subgroup of our customers started using original mikromedia boards beyond the development phase, as OEM parts.
To make things simpler (and more lucrative) for those customers, mikromedia HMI keeps only the essential components that simplify its integration into a final product, whilst keeping overall costs down by removing all the excessive circuitry (which is otherwise desired on a dev board).
We are introducing a total of 18 boards. They come in four sizes: 3.5″, 4.3″, 5″, 7″, with different touchscreen options (capacitive, resistive, or without). For integrating into larger systems, they either have mounting frames or high quality glass bezels.
mikromedia HMI are powered by a FT900Q 32-bit MCU, with displays by Riverdi, our partners whose displays we started selling two weeks ago. We have a strong partnership with Riverdi, they will give mikromedia HMI boards additional exposure by showcasing them the Display Conference in San Francisco this week.
mikromedia HMI boards integrate a microSD card and additional Flash for expanding storage capacity, a haptic feedback motor, small audio speaker, and a micro USB connector. A connector for interfacing the MCU with external electronics, along with a separate connector for FT903Q’s parallel camera interface.
For development purposes, we also made a mikromedia HMI breakout board which is compatible with all 18 models.
The mikromedia brand has a successful track record as an OEM part. mikromedia HMI is a major improvement on the recipe. See our learn article to get a sense of how the board integrates with our software toolchain FT90x compilers and VisualTFT). Pre-order to a evaluate. Shipping starts on June 21.
