Noritake Itron has introduced a range of iSMART TFT Modules to enable users to develop their application in a matter of days with limited experience of TFTs or programming.
The modules can run as a host or support serial interfaces and 8 bit CPU hosts where communication traffic needs to be a minimum. This achieved using a unique 'easy to use' object-oriented programming language.
The 4.3" version has 24 bit colour with 100 pages of display RAM, 128MByte onboard flash and 4G+ SDHC card slot giving it many of the attributes of a PC-based TFT system but at 30% of the cost with 1pc selling at £85 and 100pcs at £72.
Users can interface via RS232, RS485, SPI, I2C, Async and USB with a 1MHz CAN bus expander available. The 24 user I/O can support a 144 key matrix without the need for diodes. The module also features piezo drive, 3 PWM and 2 Analogue channels plus AC97 stereo audio bus, a real time clock with date, an analogue touch panel and integrated debugger and command trace.

Pre-release customers have described this product as a 'recession buster' due to its low implementation cost, fast turn around capability and the professional result one can achieve with relatively little effort.
