Smart USB Touch Screens for Sensors and Controls

We are building end-user app programmable touchscreen enabled USB component products for use in laboratory, scientific, control, measurement and OEM applications, for release in Q3 2015.

Would your project be more effective with integration of a USB-based touch screen device with sensor and control I/O? Get it running in days, not months!

Our Decaf board kits are complete, ready-to-run, fully licensed USB building block devices. Decaf boards are USB Human Interface Devices (HID) and use standard Windows drivers.

All the hardware, software, sample code, documentation and support you need to get your project running quickly are included.
