The TFT 7 Professional Kit 3 for STM32F4 offers a complete solution for creating graphical user interfaces on a TFT display using an ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller programmed in C.
This kit bundles the mikromedia 7 for STM32F4, a license of the Visual TFT design software, and the mikroC compiler & IDE for ARM (with USB license dongle).
mikromedia 7 for STM32F4 Overview The mikromedia 7 for STM32F4 allows development of hand-held or mounted devices with multimedia content. The central part of the system is the 32-bit STM32F407ZGT6 ARM Cortex-M4 microcontroller. The mikromedia 7 for STM32 features integrated modules such as stereo MP3 codec, 7-inch TFT 800×480 touch screen display, accelerometer, microSD card slot, buzzer, IR receiver, RGB LED, PIN photodiode, temperature sensor, 2.4GHz RF transceiver, Ethernet transceiver, WiFi module, CAN transceiver, 8Mbit Flash memory, RTC battery, Li-Poly battery charger, etc. The board also contains a mini-B USB OTG connector, power jack, On/Off switch, and more.
A color user manual is included, and code examples are free to download. The board has a built-in mikroProg programmer/debugger with USB interface, so you won't have to spend a penny more on external programmers. If you do want to, 2×5-pin pads are available for using an external mikroProg for STM32 or ST-LINK/V2 (with adapter).
All unused microcontroller pins are available via pads along the sides of the board. The board measures 179 × 111 mm (7 × 4.37 inches). It ships with an Ethernet cable, a USB cable, a 2GB microSD card, a stylus, spacers, and pin headers that you can solder to the expansion ports.
The system is powered by your PC via USB. Simply plug in the USB cable and the TFT display will turn on automatically. It also can be powered by a battery or an external supply via its barrel jack.
Please see the mikromedia 7 for STM32F4 page for more details and to download its user manual.
Visual TFT Overview Visual TFT is a standalone application used for rapid development of graphical user interfaces for TFT displays. The software generates code compatible with mikroElektronika compilers for all supported MCU architectures. Visual TFT implements an intuitive environment and many drag-and-drop components which can be used for building applications easily and fast. Upgrades to the Visual TFT software are free for life.
Please see the Visual TFT page for details, documentation, videos and a downloadable demo version.
Overview of Compiler and IDE for ARM Cortex mikroC is a full-featured compiler for Texas Instruments Stellaris/Tiva and STMicroelectronics STM32 devices. It features an intuitive IDE, a powerful compiler with advanced SSA optimizations, lots of hardware and software libraries, and additional tools that will help you in your work. The compiler comes with a comprehensive Help file (700 pages) and lots of ready-to-use examples designed to get you started in no time.
Each compiler license includes free upgrades and tech support for the lifetime of the product. The software features a Live Update service so you can get new features and improvements instantly.
The compiler is designed to be smart and efficient, so you can rely on it to do the hard work. It features SSA optimizations that can reduce your code size up to 40 percent. Standard header files are included that make it easy to port your code from other C compilers.
Please see the mikroC page for a detailed list of features, documentation, and a downloadable demo version.
