iDev OS Host System
What is iDev OS?
iDevOS is a combined operating system and application processor software suitable for controlling a wide range of applications using a color TFT display with touch panel and numerous interfaces to control peripheral devices. It was developed to reduce the time taken for companies to implement the latest color display technology in their products by supplying much of the high level functionality expected of a touch controlled display in the operating system.
Creating an iDev Project
Define a name for your project and list all the files to be included to enable the application. Add or delete files from the project and maintain an update status of each.
Transfer Project to SD Card
Upload files all files to the SD card.
Free Sample Project Files
The example projects are supplied for educational and rapid start purposes.
iDevTFT Development Software
The iDevTFT software is being developed to simplify the creation, editing and uploading of application menus, fonts and images into 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.
Run a project
Run the project on a virtual TFT with interface communications enabled.
Emulate a project
Run a real-time emulation of the project, where you can use communication interfaces, IO port, External Keys, ADC and PWM. You can also add entities to a Watch List top view these as the project runs.
Create, Edit & View Font files
Create your own characters or animations or edit existing font sets. Import or export a grey scale BMP image.
Run the project code step by step, up to a breakpoint using the emulation code view window.

GT Product Features
FLETAS® Metallized Projective Capacitive Touch
Two metallized layers(x-y) are overlaid onto an LCD screen. These thin-film metallic panels have a lower impedance than typical ITO** touch panels. This allows for a higher S/N ratio, wider touch sense margin, and better overall sensitivity.

** ITO = Indium Tin Oxide
Each module has a high brightness TFT ranging from 950-1000cd/m2*.
* Actual brightness range: 810-850cd/m2.
Variable projection radius. Tested up to 5mm acrylic and *15mm glass overlay without aﬀecting touch response under factory conditions.
Allow for gesture control and handles up to 10 concurrent touches at a time.
Glass surface is damage-resistant and tolerant to chemical cleaning solutions.
