Visual tft display sizes

Many display sizes and 2 touch screen types

Visual TFT supports a total of 17 TFT controllers and many different display sizes, from 131x131 to 800x600 pixels. The most popular ones are the 320x240 TFT displays running on ILI9341controller. This display is found in many embedded devices worldwide. All MikroElektronika multimedia boards have this display integrated, so you’ll have all the hardware you need to get started. You can also order TFT displays separately from MikroElektronika’s online store.

Support for powerful FTDI FT8x and FT81x

Visual TFT also supports FTDI chip™ - the latest EVE GUI Platform and FT8x and FT81x families of graphics controllers. These powerful devices allow for sophisticated forms of human-machine interaction and more satisfying user experiences, including video playback. EVE integrates display, audio and touch onto a low cost, easy-to-use, single-chip solution. The EVE family has an object-based structure (where objects can be images, fonts, etc). This offers you an easy way to design more effective GUIs for TFTs, with all the display, audio and touch functionality included. Visual TFT is the first software in the world to provide full support for many of EVE’s powerful features like sound, transparency and anti-aliasing fonts. There are many new components available for GUI design, which are natively supported in the controller itself.

Microchip

Intuitive interface VTFT

Intuitive interface

The Visual TFT Interface is really easy to use, and implements standard intuitive behavior, so you will feel like using any other vector graphic editors. But we have mixed functionalities from both worlds: world of design and world of programming. There are several palettes of most useful components that you can use in your application. Just drag a component onto a pixel grid display screen and it will be drawn instantly. Use Object Inspector to edit component properties and to assign desired events.

Unlimited memory with external resources

Do you need more space for your images and fonts? Do you want to create image slideshows, or to even play a video from MMC/SD Card? With new Resource file feature, Visual TFT software brings you all this and much more. If this option is selected, after code generation, Visual TFT will store all of your images and fonts in the resource file and will optimize them as much as possible for faster utilization. You just have to copy that file onto your MMC/SD card and you are ready to go.

IDE

The best possible solution for designing GUIs

With our amazing IDE your workspace will be organized, comfortable and completely suited to your needs. Use the default layout of the IDE, or arrange the windows manually. Navigate through all the projects you are working on seamlessly and save time.

IDE

You can organize your project into several screens. Each screen can be one application or a container for one functionality of your application. Easily traverse through screens, change orientation and background colors and organize components as you desire. With zoom feature, screen grid and easy manipulation of content, screens are really easy and pleasant to work with.

IDE components palette

Components palette

These components are all it takes to create what you imagined. We have made dozens of great projects of different complexity.

Each component has its own properties: gradient and standard fills for boxes, different fonts for labels and buttons, text and border colors, positions on the screen, visibility, activity and more.

Each one supports standard events, such as OnClick, OnPress, OnDown, OnUp.

Object Inspector

In Object Inspector you can easily manage multiple screens and edit your component in a practical and easy way.

You can enter data relevant to your project such as Component name, Distance, Width, Height, Caption, Font, Colors etc.

Edit component events and bring them to life. Object inspector is an elegant and intuitive tool for rapid development.

Site License

Site Licenses for MikroElektronika Compilers

The regular licensing model for MikroElektronika software works best for individual users. If you run a two-person team, a whole R&D department, or teach a class, the Site License is a better solution. It allows you to own, manage and deploy multiple single licenses, with some major benefits:

Affordable: Instead of buying multiple licenses at regular price, we will quote a special discounted price. Schools and universities will get the best deals.

Flexible: With the Site license, individual licenses are not tied to individual computers/users. In other words, you don’t have to buy a compiler license for each person who will use it. The number of licenses you own only defines how many compiler copies can be in active use at the same time. You control who has access.

Here's How It Works

  1. Once you purchase a given number of compilers, we will send you the installation for the Site License Manager (available for Windows and Linux). It’s an application that runs a server from your computer.
  2. Enter the Site License activation key in the License Manager application
  3. To give members of your team/class access, simply share IP address and/or PORT number of the Site License server (visible from within the application)
  4. To activate their compiler, members of your class/team connect to the server by entering the IP address and PORT number you gave them.
  5. Once an individual user finishes his work session, the user slot becomes available again

Site License Inquiry

Clicking on Submit will open a Support Ticket which will be assigned to the person who can best deal with the issue in question. You will immediately receive an automated response message and will be able to monitor communication thread through our Support Center.
