HMI memory saver
It’s a hi-res world when it comes to interacting with our various screens. Designing an interface that is functional and visually appealing while not blowing your bandwidth budget is challenging. Bridgetek showcased their BT815/6 series of advanced graphics controller ICs for next-gen HMI development that supports Adaptive Scalable Texture Compression (ASTC) algorithm. The compression algorithm allows for smaller compressed files so image quality can be enhanced significantly bringing color TFT to broader markets including home automation and industrial. Both these ICs support the rendering of high-resolution graphics and have video playback capabilities.
