Simple display needs should not require complex solutions. Amulet Technologies abides by that motto with its line of Smart GUI Modules, now available in VGA (640 by 480) and half-VGA (480 by 320) resolutions. Each unit has its own on-module processor with 1 Mbyte of flash memory. The system uses its own compact form of HTML called µHTML. Also, a design tool allows easy creation of Web pages.
The Smart GUI Modules connect to a host processor via a serial link that operates at speeds of up to 115 kbits/s. Third-party add-ons deliver wireless and Ethernet connections. Prices for the full VGA versions start at $375, while the half-VGA resolution units start at $325. FSTN, STN Blue, and FSTN transreflective versions are available.
