Microchip Graphics Display Designer, PICtail Plus Daughter Board

Microchip Technology introduced the Graphics Display Designer software tool and Graphics PICtail Plus Daughter Board with 3.2″ Display Kit. The Graphics Display Designer software tool enables designers to visually create screens on a computer and then auto-generate the code that draws these screens for use with the free Microchip Graphics Library. The Graphics PICtail Plus Daughter helps engineers to cost-effectively evaluate Microchip’s graphics solutions and develop embedded graphics display applications. With the new development tools, developers can quickly integrate graphics display functions into embedded applications using a single microcontroller, reducing development risk, total system cost and time to market.
