Avnet Fast Tracks Embedded Display Development with New 10-inch Touch Display Kit

PHOENIX—Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, today released the 10-inch Touch Display Kit, providing engineers in markets including portable instrumentation, consumer kiosks, embedded systems and industrial automation all the elements needed to develop rich and interactive GUI applications with touchscreen capability using Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC evaluation and development boards. The Avnet-designed AES-ALI3-AMPIRE10-G kit is available for $499.

Avnet's new 10-inch Touch Display Kit demonstrates a complete embedded display system, allowing for video output to an integrated 10-inch LVDS display with the benefits of projected capacitive touch technology. The kit combines a 1280×800 WXGA TFT-LCD display with a PCAP touch sensor overlay, I2 C touch controller, LED backlight supply, haptic feedback driver, 3-axis accelerometer and all the necessary cables for connecting to a development board. The touch display easily connects to the ZedBoard , MicroZed , PicoZed, or Zynq Mini-ITX through the standard DisplayPort cable and adapter cards included with the kit.

The kit's display panel provides a luminance level of 850 nits and a uniform 75-degree viewing angle, making the optic performance of this display an excellent fit for portable equipment applications, particularly in situations where the user may not be at an optimal distance from the display or where the equipment is located in environments with non-ideal lighting.

“With the growing number of applications requiring embedded human-machine interface capability, Avnet has developed the 10-inch Touch Display Kit to offer developers a broader range of user interface features,” said Jim Beneke, vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing. “This kit's high-brightness 1280×800 pixel display, integrated haptic feedback, positional awareness and touch sense technologies are key elements of a differentiated display solution in today's highly competitive embedded market.”

Kit includes:

  • 10-inch LCD Touch Display Assembly
  • ZED LCD Interface Interposer Board
  • Standard-to-Mini DisplayPort Cable
  • 12V Power Supply
  • Getting Started instructions
