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 controller

Need 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.

QScreen™ Controller

  • 128 x 240 pixel Monochrome LCD with Touchscreen Control
  • Built-in Real Time Operating System (RTOS)
  • Easily Program Graphics, Screens, Buttons and Menus
  • Two RS232/485 Serial Ports, optional USB adapter
  • Precoded Software: Object Oriented Menu Manager, I/O Drivers
  • Up to 1MB Flash, 512K RAM, 64Mbyte Mass Memory
  • Expandable I/O: Directly Hosts up to 7 Wildcards, including Ethernet and WiFi
  • Panel Mounts with Bezel
  • Environmental Gasket and Screen Protector are available to provide a tight, chemically resistant seal between your touchscreen and bezel and to prevent scratching & infiltration of dust or liquids.

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.
To communicate with your QScreen via USB, order the QSSK-USB Starter Kit version which includes a USB to RS232 adapter cable.
