Introduction

CleO brings to market a family of intelligent, simple to program TFT display boards through which engineers can develop original, compelling human machine interfaces, regardless of their experience level. Using Arduino as a foundation, CleO can leverage Bridgetek's high-speed bridging and display technology to achieve improved performance and greater functionality.

 

The CleO family of smart TFT display controllers can be easily programmed to give professional looking HMI / GUI's with no prior knowledge of sophisticated graphics programming or mathematics.

 

With extensive tutorials (21 Chapters covering 80+ topics) + 23 DIY projects included to show you how CleO50 (the 5 inch display version) allows both hobbyists and professionals alike to add an WVGA (800 x 480 pixel) resistive touch TFT display GUI to their Arduino UNO projects.

 

CleO50 is designed to work alongside NerO, our energy efficient enhanced Arduino Compatible board. This accessory delivers >1A current at 5V without overheating, and the long pin version supplied allows CleO50 to be discretely mounted beneath NerO, leaving the shield headers fully exposed for IO expansion.
