Coming soon: Java-programmable
The iLCDs from demmel products shortly will have a Java Virtual Machine (Java VM) implemented on-board. demmel products shows on this year’s electronica a prototype which allows to run compiled Java-code directly on the iLCD panels.
The Java development environment will extend the iLCD Manager XE which will still be available for download at no charge. The Java application can then be generated by the integrated compiler. It is uploaded directly onto the display via the existing USB interface. A further special feature is the included debugger which allows remote-debugging of the Java application also directly on the display via the USB interface. The setup of the entire development and debug environment is done within minutes by installing or updating the iLCD Manager XE. There will be no additional software or hardware necessary.
The iLCD Technology
demmel products‘ iLCDs have all components necessary for driving the display on-board: A controller running a stable firmware, sufficient memory and standard interfaces are among the equipment integrated on the backside of the slim modules.
Screen designs are not made up pixel by pixel, but with the help of parameterized high-level commands. Even complex screen layouts require only few bytes to be sent to the panel via one of the integrated interfaces. All required resources like fonts, static and animated graphics, text modules and macros are stored on the panel in advance. Therefore, also low cost microcontrollers are suitable to make use of the extensive iLCD feature spectrum.
All iLCDs are equipped with a resistive touch screen. The sizes 5.0", 5.7" and 7.0" are also available with a projected capacitive (PCAP) multi-touch screen. This allows the realization of reliable user interfaces behind protective cover glass of up to 4 mm thickness meeting high mechanical robustness, hygienic and optical requirements.
Smart & Easy
The royalty-free iLCD Manager XE, which is part of the iLCD technology, is the IDE for setup, configuration, programming and testing the iLCD panels. It is comfortable, simple to use and further accelerates LCD developments. The iLCD Manager XE supports the entire iLCD product line, allowing for a seamless migration and continuation of existing projects.
The integrated iLCD Simulator is a particularly helpful tool for the assessment of display projects – without any hardware, on every iLCD Manager installation and without the need for any modification. Projects can be evaluated by any stakeholder in any project stage and in any place.
The DPP-T57 | DPP-C57 5.7" panel is the bestseller of demmel product's iLCD product line. Properties like a compact size, high brightness and a VGA resolution make it the ideal candidate for medium-sized high-end equipment. The 5.7" iLCDs with resistive or capacitive touch panel are deployed in applications like medical devices, machine tools or access control systems.
“The iLCD technology enables us to design our products exactly according to our ideas with small effort.”
Get an idea of how demmel products is defining intelligent displays. Our software for setup, configuration and management, combined with our well equipped intelligent LCD panels result in a real smart system.
The intuitive and ergonomic operation by means of a graphic user interface with touch screen is a key selling argument for products targeted at applications for machine building, medical devices, electrical engineering or in public space.
Integration of a plain display as an HMI leads to extensive efforts for hardware and software development of the associated driving electronics. The functionalities and interfaces integrated in the iLCDs are the key to help avoiding these efforts. The intelligent displays from demmel products have all components necessary for display operation on-board. As a consequence, project complexity, integration expense and time-to-market are reduced dramatically.
Deployment of iLCDs gives particularly smaller manufacturers the chance to compete in the global marketplace with a state-of-the-art design. The license-free iLCD Manager XE and the long-term available iLCDs form a solution made from one piece which is designed in high-quality, technically matured and intuitive to handle. The iLCD technology facilitates a much faster go-to-market with successful products and dramatically cuts development efforts at the same time.
