How does your solution compare with Maple Systems?

Maple Systems touch screens are highly feature-rich, regarding speed and connectivity; hence, they’re more complicated to use (and more costly). If you don’t need 3D animations, the ability to play video or music, or Ethernet connectivity, you will find our solutions more than adequate and much simpler to use (if you need some of those features, check out our advanced display modules). Since our interface to your system is a Command Line Interface implemented over a serial port, any microcontroller with a UART and enough speed and memory to handle your application will do just fine. Download app notes, code samples, data sheets, and complete manuals. If you want to discuss your application requirements and which of our products will best meet your needs, please contact Reach Technical Support.

Note: If you do need 3D animations, video, or Ethernet, be sure to look at our Reach Advanced Display Modules, which also use an industry-standard IDE (Qt Creator), programming language (QML), and operating system (Linux).
