Arduino developers and those of your that enjoy creating your own DIY electronic projects, might be interested in a new LCD touchscreen in the form of the arLCD Arduino touchscreen display which has been created by EarthMake. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about this new mini touchscreen LCD display.
The Earthmake arLCD Arduino touchscreen display combines the ezLCD SmartLCD GPU and API with the Open Source Arduino UNO development environment and the 3.5 inch screen offers 64% more display than a 2.8 LCD and offers a 320 x 240 resolution with 65k colours. (6-9V operating voltage)
arLCD Arduino touchscreen display is a full smart ezLCD GPU with the Arduino Uno R3 on the same PCB in a thin, easy to integrate package with a panel mount bezel available in the near future. The arLCD combines the Arduino and the award winning ezLCD into a single product, ready to accept all Arduino compatible shields. The arLCD can be used in many applications such as thermostat control, lighting controls, home security, audio control, water level gauge, robotics, operational control, and button switches.
The EarthSEMPL (Simple Embedded Macro Programming Language) API is enjoyable to use and intuitive! A multitude of fonts, images, widgets and sample macros are included to get you going quickly! Widgets include: analog meter, buttons, checkbox, dial, radio button, slider, and others! Do not confuse this with a snails pace 2.8″ LCD shield that uses almost all your I/O pins! This is a full smart ezLCD GPU with the Arduino Uno R3 on the same PCB in a thin easy to integrate package with a panel mount bezel available in the near future. The 3.5″ has 64% more display area then a 2.8″ LCD. The ArLCD combines the Arduino and the award winning ezLCD into a single product ready to accept all Arduino compatible shields!
