STM32 solution for GUI applications using 4" to 5" displays with typical resolutions of 480x272(WQVGA) or 480x320(VGA)

Solution Description

This solution delivers a comprehensive offer enabling advanced and cost effective Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) on display resolution of WQVGA(480x272) and HVGA(480x320) which represent a display size of 4 to 5 inches.

Thanks to the STM32H7A3/7B3 and STM32H7B0 graphic accelerations and their large embedded SRAM, you can now deliver a superior GUI without any external RAM and starting from cost effective 64 pins packages. TouchGFX and Advanced graphic partners solutions take the full benefit of STM32 hardware and bring the needed performance, advanced effects and ease of use to enable state of the ART user interfaces in embedded devices

The full STM32 Graphical User interface offer is structured around the following pillars:

  • Industry’s broadest advanced graphics enabled MCU offer
  • State-of-the-art graphical development tools available for free
  • Support and documentation center
  • Reference designs and selected design partners
