The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) will continue to provide its share of design challenges, but one we often need to consider is what user interfaces are needed. Depending on the application, we may need anything from a simple button / LED (the “hello world” of embedded programming) to a full color touch screen. Or we may take advantage of the connectivity of the Internet to provide all controls and readouts on a remotely located screen.

We will look at the various needs on some representative IIoT applications and how we can provide the needed user interface(s). We will make use of some examples for both simple character LCD and graphical touch display, including some hands-on exercises for both. Then we will finish up by looking at some innovative ways of providing remote operation of our devices.

This class will make use of the following item, available from Digi-Key:

The hands-on development can be carried out without the board using the simulation abilities of the TouchGFX tool.

February 27 – Day 2 – Simple Interfaces that Aren’t So Simple

Many off-the-shelf microcontrollers include human-machine interface (HMI) circuitry to enable ‘simple’ inputs and outputs such as touchpads and segmented alphanumeric displays. However, implementing these features is not always easy or even straightforward. In our second class, we will look in...
