This demo showcases NXP’s LPC4088 (running on OEM board with capacitive touchscreen) from Embedded Artists running TouchGFX graphics, simulating a home energy monitoring application.


High-end graphical performance can be achieved using TouchGFX graphical framework in combination with LPC4088 microcontroller based on a Cortex M4. Features known from smartphones like responsive touch gestures, animations, full screen transitions, transparency are all showcased in with a display update frequency of 30 to 60 frames per second.


TouchGFX is highly optimized for high-end graphics running on microcontroller hardware, utilizing the internal TFT-driver and SPIFI interface of the LPC4088 makes the combination of LPC4088 and TouchGFX a perfect match for cost effective and low power display solutions. Demo utilizes an OEM ready display module from Embedded Artists.


Value Propositions

TouchGFX Software and LPC4000 series MCU enables smartphone look and feel in cost effective embedded display solutions.
