Embedded Controllers with Graphical User Interfaces
Versatile and affordable operator interfaces
Mosaic's embedded computers combined with displays and touchscreen operated graphical user interfaces (GUI) offer a low cost solution to instrument control. Engineers designing embedded hardware will find our HMI products ideal for numerous applications that require a programmable hand held controller and a smart user interface. A touch panel display, a powerful microcontroller, Ethernet or WiFi connectivity, sophisticated gui tools for programming hundreds of screens, compact flash mass memory, and many flavors of expandable I/O will make your system more flexible and efficient without compromising its affordability.
We offer many off-the-shelf options to the standard configuration. Combined with mix-and-match expandable I/O, this allows endless configuration options for all levels of complexity - from simple front panel applications to complex networked SCADA systems.
Source code generator makes front panel design easy
Used for scientific instruments, robotics, or process control, our affordable embedded computers come with a set of complementary features including real time operating system software, and precoded device drivers. With the help of Mosaic's GUI Toolkit and the GUI Builder you can design hundreds of screens with different levels of graphical user interface - from simple switchboards to sophisticated diagrams of entire processes. And you don't have to worry about the source code, the GUI Builder will generate it for you.
Embedded webserver for your instrument controllerNeed Networking? Consider adding embedded Ethernet or WiFi communications to the instrument controller of your choice.Turn your instrument into an embedded webserver by adding Mosaic's EtherSmart Wildcard, or a WiFi Wildcard. The EtherSmart/WiFi Wildcards implement a dynamic webserver that accepts connections from your web browser, serving out static or dynamic web pages.
Designed as a fully-functional, compact industrial PC powered by an HC11 Motorola microprocessor, the low-cost QScreen Controller is ideal for OEM applications where installation space is critical, such as embedded systems, scientific instruments, robotics, and portable data acquisition.
For a fast time to market, order a QScreen Starter Kit
(Part No. QSSK), which includes everything you need to rapidly prototype your product: the QScreen Controller with a monochrome LCD, real time clock, 512K RAM and 1MB flash, convenient connectors, 9 pin serial cable, power supply, and documentation.
The QVGA Controller features an LCD graphics display, a high-resolution analog touchscreen, and a built-in GUI software toolkit. The prime benefit of this new C-programmable three-in-one unit is that it provides Original Equipment Manufacturers with a low cost solution and faster product development. You may use this compact integrated device as the core hardware, software and user interface for your new products.
For a quick and easy start, order a QVGA Starter Kit (Part No. QVGASK), which includes the QVGA Controller (p/n QVGA-BB) with a monochrome display, battery-backup of the 128K RAM on the QED Flash Board, a 9 pin serial cable (p/n PCC9-232), 14 VDC power supply (p/n PS-14V), and full documentation. To communicate with the QVGA Controller via USB, order QVGASK-USB version of the Starter Kit which includes a USB to RS232 adapter.
When combined with the QCard Controller, the Keypad/Display Wildcard makes it easy to design interactive instruments with intuitive user interfaces.
