Almost every modern product, from food service machines to production line equipment to smart building controls is adopting rich graphic/touch LCD user interfaces. Engineers are bombarded with marketing hype on how some chip or library or tool can make this transition easy and quick. Unfortunately, most of these so-called “solutions” are merely small building blocks in a much larger and disruptive platform technology and engineering challenge. Don’t embark on your HMI voyage without attending this session! We’ve seen innumerable epic HMI failures – let us help you avoid some of the common ones as we walk you through elements to consider and evaluate before you set sail.Key Take-A-Ways
Embedded architectures have lifespans. Inevitably you have to take your design apart and redo it as the new features and capabilities needed on your company’s roadmap aren’t possible with the prior design. Today’s disruptive – but desirable – product features include unprecedented connectivity options (BT5, WiFi, Ethernet, Zigbee, 4G, USB, …), HMI, and IoT with nearly infinite control and data visibility. And security concerns loom around every corner. Like Steve Austin, your platform has to be faster… better… stronger. But, unlike Steve, you don’t have 6 million dollars to spare: in your world, that translates to mountains of new software and the complexities of 10,000-page MCU data sheets that can grind your “we can rebuild it” project to a halt. This session explores new embedded platform solutions that can revolutionize how you architect, design, develop, deploy, scale, and evolve your embedded products on a beat rate and total cost of software/hardware never before possible. You can rebuild it.

Adding a modern graphic/touch Human Machine Interface (HMI) to your industrial, commercial, or medical product can be a simple, yet extremely effective upgrade Avoid the myriad pitfalls in this complex endeavor, including the supply chain challenges, technology selection, longevity concerns, scalability, and cost of deployment and maintenance of the hardware and software. Co-presented by industry experts, Todd Bolanz (CEO, LXD Research & Display) and Terry West (CEO, Serious Integrated), this webinar will give you the information and tools you need to evaluate and select your LCD and touch technology as well as the platform hardware and software technology you’ll need to drive it.
