Driving a TFT with a Microcontroller? The challenges and how to combat them


Christian Madella, Senior Development Engineer, andersDX

andersDX discuss the challenges driving TFT displays from a microcontroller including

  • Hardware Interface limitations
  • Bus-speed limitations
  • Memory and processing limitation
  • Software and graphical libraries
  • Small footprint UI application coding complications

We will also give some guidance on ┬ÁController based HMI platforms possibilities and low cost ┬ÁProcessor based solutions with Linux capabilities
