VGA Graphics Engine

The uVGA-III module is a compact and cost effective standalone VGA graphics engine powered by the PICASO graphics controller. It can provide QVGA/VGA/WVGA graphics solution to any embedded project with its powerful graphics, text, image, animation and countless more features built inside the module.

The PICASO works as a standalone device. It allows the user to take complete control of all available resources on the uVGA-III hardware platform such as the Serial Ports, uSD memory card, I/O pins, etc. This eliminates the need for an external host controller/processor to drive the uVGA-III module via serial commands. It provides the user complete control over the hardware module allowing them to quickly develop practical applications.

Programmed with 4D Systems Workshop 4 IDE Software, the uVGA-III could be the ideal embedded VGA graphics solution for your project.

Introducing 4D Systems' All New Workshop4 IDE

Supports multiple development environments, to cater for different user requirements and skill level.

Workshop4 is a comprehensive software IDE for Microsoft Windows that provides an integrated software development platform for all of the 4D family of processors and modules. The IDE combines the Editor, Compiler, Linker and Downloader to develop complete 4DGL application code. All user application code is developed within the Workshop4 IDE.

Workshop4 includes four development environments, for the user to choose based on application requirements or even user skill level.

This environment enables the
user to write 4DGL code in its
natural form to program the
display module.

ViSi - Genie

An advanced environment
that doesn't require any
4DGL 
coding at all, it is all
done 
automatically for you.
Simply 
lay the display out
with the 
objects you want
(similar to 
ViSi), set the
events to drive 
them and
the code is written 
for
you automatically. ViSi

Genie provides the latest
rapid development
experience from
4D Systems.

This environment is also
provided to transform the
display module into a
slave serial display module,
allowing the user to control
the display from any host

microcontroller or device
with a serial port.
