5/10/2004 - Mosaic Industries has released the QScreen ControllerTM, a C-programmable embedded computer with a built-in graphical user interface. Powered by an HC11 Motorola microprocessor, this low-cost instrument controller is ideal for OEM applications such as embedded systems, scientific instruments, robotics, and portable data acquisition.
The QScreen Controller sports a touchscreen-operated graphical user interface on a high-contrast 128x240 pixel display with a 5x4 touchscreen overlay. It also features a real-time multitasking operating system, hundreds of pre-coded device drivers, and up to 1M Flash and 512K RAM. The QScreen Controller commands eight 8-bit A/D lines, 8 digital I/O lines including timer-controlled and PWM channels, and two RS232/485 ports. Pre-coded I/O drivers are provided for all I/O, and make it easy to do data acquisition, pulse width modulation, motor control, frequency measurement, data analysis, analog control, PID control, and communications.
Highly expandable, the QScreen can host up to 7 WildcardsTM, small stackable I/O modules for sophisticated and dedicated I/O. Available Wildcards include octal 12-bit D/A and 16-bit A/D converters, a 24-bit resolution analog data acquisition subsystem, Compact Flash card mass memory interface, fast buffered RS232/485 dual UART, high voltage/high current isolated I/O, and AC or DC solid state relays.
The QScreen Controller is priced at $359.00 in 100s.
