TIMI-MB Starter Kit

Added to your shopping cart

TIMI-MB (mikroBUS™) is a unique breadboard compatible display development module designed to provide development boards/modules which have a mikroBUS™ Click socket a simple to interface display solution. TIMI-MB is aimed to speed up and reinvent the way electronic testing, development and projects are carried out. This Starter Kit version features a TIMI-MB and a Mates Programmer to get you started as easily as possible!

Wrapped in a sleek metal frame, TIMI can be viewed at any angle. Boasting a full RBG (65K vivid colors) display with 160×80 resolution. TIMI-MB is a 0.96” TFT LCD display module that is driven directly by a PIXXI-28 graphics processor from 4D Labs. It features a mikroBUS™ interface, designed to attach to development platforms featuring a mikroBUS™ socket or headers.

TIMI’s main interface is a 3.3V level Asynchronous Serial UART and features three GPIO which can be used as Digital or Analog inputs, Digital Outputs, Controller I2C Communication or PWM Audio output. These interfaces arm TIMI with resources to be either a stand-alone controller, a Host driven peripheral, or a tethered test instrument while being capable of interfacing and powering external devices themselves.

The TIMI -MB connects to the mikroBUS™ Click interface, utilizing primarily the Serial UART of the Click host. It also features a selector switch, which interrupts the Hosts TX signal, to direct the TIMI-MB’s RX signal to the programming header instead. This allows the TIMI-MB to be left connected to the Host board when the TIMI-MB is required to be programmed. Reset is also connected to the RST of the mikroBUS™.

The TIMI -MB also features a 5-pin programming header, to program its processor using the BreadBoard Mates Programmer, and a selection switch (on the back – accessible from the bottom edge) to switch between device programming mode or connection of the device to the mikroBUS™ Host.

TIMI-MB was created as a flexible design aid, primarily to simulate components readouts and meters, which would otherwise be cumbersome or demanding on hardware resources for breadboard or electronic development. Simulating component readouts allows accelerated development and retains the often-limited GPIO hardware associated with many developments.

TIMI-MB was designed for engineers, hobbyists, and students, from beginner to advanced levels, designed to make project development, easier.
