TFT Controller for HMI Applications: Firestorm GUI

Firestorm Controller

Apollo Display Technologies developed the Firestorm GUI as a serial controller for TFT and STN/CSTN displays. The Firestorm GUI is an intelligent human-machine-interface (HMI), which provides visual feedback and user input functions via a connected display and/or touchscreen.

Features of our Firestorm GUI are:

  • On-board image compression with frame buffers used for full screen animations, slide shows, fast menus in control applications, etc.
  • Optional programmable GPIO lines to control external devices and/or activate functions
  • Supports TFTs up to SVGA resolution (800x600) and STN/CSTN displays
  • Fast system initialization; board boots within 1 second
  • Integrated touch controller (4-wire resistive)
  • Wide temperature range of -22°F to 176°F
  • Optional USB/Ethernet/CAN Bus
  • Fast response time of controller
  • Integrated LED backlight driver
  • Low power consumption
  • Motion sensor function
