GUI Kits

Start your embedded project now

We offer low cost Starter Kits for our c programmable single board computers (SBC) and operator interfaces ideal for instrument design and embedded design applications. Engineers designing embedded hardware will find our products ideal for numerous embedded applications. Use them for embedded systems control, robotics, data acquisition, data logging, data analysis, and communications in instruments and automation.

All of Mosaic Starter Kits come complete with a power supply, serial communications cable, documentation, free rtos and embedded multitasking programming tools. You will get everything you need to start programming immediately. QED-Forth programming language and development software in onboard ROM are provided with all Mosaic embedded products at no additional charge.

Free embedded software

Mosaic operator interface products sport powerful embedded gui toolkits: The Graphics Converter application runs on a PC and converts your custom images into graphics that can be displayed by your embedded microcontroller. The GUI Builder program runs on the target controller board, allowing you to quickly design and place your buttons and graphics in a menu-based system, while generating the GUI source code for you! The GUI Toolkit is the runtime engine that processes user inputs (touchscreen or keypad presses) and manages the user interface.

Our comprehensive documentation packages explain every aspect of the hardware and software and provide coded examples to help you take advantage of all the features of Mosaic's powerful instrument controllers. A C compiler and many options and accessories are also available.

Expandable I/O for Embedded System Design

Need more I/O for your embedded system design? Add Mosaic Wildcards to the Starter Kit of your choice. You can directly stack Wildcard expansion modules onto Mosaic embedded products to add functionality such as embedded Ethernet or WiFi webserver, GPS tracking, CF card mass memory, high resolution D/A and A/D and much more .
