Your Ideal Partner for Intelligent Display Solutions (IDE)!

What is an Intelligent display solution?

Intelligent Displays are highly integrated solutions consisting of:

  •          High-quality LCD module
  •          Control board & firmware
  •          Integrated Development Environment (IDE)

What is an IDE?

IDEs are powerful yet easy-to-learn and easy-to-use software which allow custom Human Machine Interface (HMI) development from scratch.

WYSIWYG - What you see is what you get: IDEs are no-code/low-code HMI development environments. Easily design your Graphic User Interface  with an intuitive drag-and-drop software which also allows you to simulate the end result directly on your PC.

Why choose an Intelligent display solution?

Speed up your time to market and cut down the costs! Intelligent displays are seamless solutions from low volume to high volume applications without the need to invest in new software development.
