1. GT-EP Series and iDevTFT
GT-EP integrates an embedded controller and a touch TFT module that works with iDev OS, so the display itself controls the embedded GUI application. Various peripherals can be controlled using the module’s built-in functions (SPI, PWM, etc.).
All features can easily be programmed with the iDev TFT development environment.
The iDevTFT software was developed to simplify the process of creating, editing and uploading application menus, fonts and images onto itron SMART TFTs. You can add files to a project list on the left side and view/edit the files on the right
side. Menu files are shown with multi-color syntax and error highlighting.
