MSC Gleichmann will be running a one-day workshop covering hardware and software design of graphical LCD user interfaces in embedded applications.
It will focus on the Renesas 32-bit RX-series microcontroller development environment and will take place at the National Motorcycle Museum in Solihull, West Midlands on Thursday 14 March.
The morning session will explain the fundamentals of driving a graphics LCD, first showing how this can be achieved using the RX62N Starter Kit to directly drive a WQVGA TFT display with touchscreen interface and then looking at how the software can be adapted for other similar standard displays.
In the afternoon session, delegates will have the opportunity to develop a simple real-world GUI using the Renesas Graphical Application Programming Interface (GAPI) software, building up code to create an interactive, animated screen.
Attendees are expected to have a reasonable working knowledge of the ‘C’ programming language and some knowledge of embedded RTOS, while not essential, would be helpful.
“This workshop is very much a practical course, aimed primarily at design and software engineers,” said Adrian Elms, business development director at MSC Gleichmann.
The seminar runs from 9am to 4:30pm and costs £49, which includes the refreshments, buffet lunch and museum entrance already mentioned, along with a RX62N promotional board, comprehensive data pack and various other discount vouchers, prize draw entries and other promotional “goodies” from Renesas.
