Connected displays for your IoT projects

May 25, 2017 // By Julien Happich
This month, 4D Systems is giving away 15 of its IoD series of intelligent display modules, worth $49 each, for eeNews Europe's readers to win.

In their fourth generation, the Internet of Displays (IoD) series come with resistive touch and an integrated WiFi module. The display modules allow users to quickly and easily create graphical user interface (GUI) applications with wireless connectivity.

The series comes in three sizes, the 2.4” gen4-IoD-24T, the 2.8” gen4-IoD-28T, and the 3.2” gen4-IoD-32T. Powered by an ESP8266 SoC device, the modules are able to handle very demanding levels of graphics functionality, and with wireless connectivity they are able to connect and communicate with cloud data and other devices on the web. An on-board SD card socket enables the use of FAT16 or FAT32 formatted cards for extensive storage capabilities. Users can design their custom GUI using Workshop4 IDE or Arduino IDE software, with simple drag and drop type programming. They can see what they are developing during the development process, and the software takes care of most of the coding for the graphics.

And last month’s winners are…

In our previous reader offer, Melexis was giving away two Time-of-Flight evaluation kits each valued at 1,700 Euros (including a complete ToF system with full documentation and technical support) for eeNews Europe readers to win. Lucky winners include Mr A. Smets from Belgium and Mr D. Vorhauer from Germany. Both should be receiving their packages soon. Let's wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
