Session 5 - Introduction to Graphics Processing (Hands-On Workshop)
EE Times University 12/13/2013 475 comments
The capabilities of microcontrollers have been steadily improving over the last few years as applications have demanded more functionality and features. More and more electronic devices are relying on a display to provide users with options and a way to interact in real-time. Traditionally, graphics and touch interfaces have proven to be complex interfaces that only a few elite can understand. This session will explore the graphics processing capabilities of the SM32F4 and how easy it is to get up and running with your own graphical user interfaces.
