Future Design Inc. presents the �EZGUI-2478-43WQS, a µEZ (pronounced "muse") GUI kit, which is a compact, highly integrated, LCD controller platform based on the LPC2478 microprocessor from NXP. It has 8MB external SDRAM and 8MB external NOR flash. The board mates directly to an included 4.3in WQVGA TFT LCD from Sharp, with final dimensions of about 117mm x 72mm x 12.7mm.

On board features include USB Device, a micro SD memory card, a real-time clock with Super Cap backup, 3-axis accelerometer, temperature sensor and mini JTAG connector. The kit also supports the addition of an expansion board for additional communication interface options like USB Host, Ethernet, RS485, and RS232 support. Power is derived directly from USB so no bulky external power supply is needed. A common interface for the LCD and touch screen control is provided with 16bit per pixel (bpp) LCD interface and 4-wire resistive touch screen control. The board also includes an LED backlight power and control circuit.

The kit is based on FDI's µEZ rapid development platform, which includes an extensive library of open-source software, drivers, and processor support, all under a common framework. µEZ development works on the premise of "design once, reuse many times." µEZ allows companies to focus on innovation and on their own value-added applications while minimising development time and maximising software reuse.

The kit also includes a J-Link Lite JTAG debugger from Segger and comes complete with all cables and a stylus for the touch screen. All documentation is included on the 2GB micro SD card and when the unit is plugged into a PC, the card appears as a USB Flash drive so the documentation can easily be copied to the PC.
