Microchip Technology Inc. releases the PIC32 GUI development board with projected-capacitive touch. The board enables bezel mounting and connections between LCD displays and most of the PIC32 MCU's on-chip peripherals. It provides ready-to-use PCB pads for common serial and analogue connections.

Described as a "GUI in a box," the development board can be inserted into most designs, making it easy for designers to add the combination of multi-touch projected-capacitive interfaces and high-quality 16bit colour graphics to WQVGA displays in any application.

Also, the PIC32 MCU has processing power to spare for additional tasks, such as communication, control and audio. It can directly drive LCDs, eliminating the cost and complexity of an external graphics controller. Microchip's on-board MTCH6301 is a turnkey projected-capacitive touch controller that simplifies the integration of popular multi-touch and gestures with greatly reduced design time and risk.

Used with the company's graphics and multi-touch software, the development board enables rich, modern user interfaces for cost-sensitive designs in a broad range of markets, such as consumer, industrial and medical.

The PIC32 GUI Development Board with Projected Capacitive Touch is available, as well as the company's Graphics Library and Graphics Display Designer Utility.
