Avnet releases upgraded 7-inch Zed touch display kit

May 26, 2015

Avnet Electronics Marketing, an operating group of Avnet Inc., today announced availability of an upgraded 7-inch Zed touch display kit featuring a more rugged assembly, more tightly integrated touch solution, and updated reference design tutorials. The Avnet-designed AES-ALI3-ZED-G kit replaces the AES-ALI2-ZED-G and provides engineers in markets including medical, embedded, and industrial automation with all the elements they need to develop interactive GUIs and touchscreen capabilities using the Xilinx Zynq-7000 All Programmable SoC. The 7-inch Zed touch display kit is available for $499.

The kit demonstrates a complete embedded display system allowing for video output to an integrated 7-inch WVGA display with the benefits of an Avnet PCAP touch solution. The kit combines an 800 x 480 WVGA TFT-LCD with an industrial projective capacitive touch sensor, I2C-based touch controller, LED backlight supply, and all the necessary cables. The touch display connects to the ZedBoard or MicroZed through a standard DisplayPort cable and adapter cards. The projected capacitive touch overlay provides enhanced touch ruggedness, suitable for demanding outdoor or industrial environments. The display panel included with this kit provides a high contrast ratio of 400:1 and 350 nits brightness, making the optic performance of this display a fit for industrial applications, particularly in locations with non-ideal lighting conditions or where the user may not be at an optimal distance from the display.

“With the rapid evolution of capacitive-touch technology and the growing number of applications requiring embedded human-machine interface capability, Avnet opted to upgrade the 7-inch Zed Touch Display Kit to offer extended value to a broader range of customers,” said Jim Beneke, vice president of global technical marketing for Avnet Electronics Marketing. “The kit was specifically designed with long-life components so developers can quickly start their user interface proof of concept and smoothly transition into production without sourcing complications due to part obsolescence.”
