Gumstix Arbor Series Designed for Handheld and Smart Home Devices Now Supporting 4.3", 5.0" and 7.0" NewHaven Capacitive Touchscreens


Three new Overo COM-based Arbor expansion boards support the NewHaven Display International’s capacitive multi-touch screens of multiple sizes and options. Custom designed in Geppetto to support the advanced technology needs of handheld and smart home devices.

Redwood City, CA, November 18, 2015 --(PR.com)-- Gumstix, Inc. the premier provider of tiny Linux® computers-on-module (COMs) for electronic manufacturers, educators and hobbyists, today announced three new Overo COM-based Arbor expansion boards that support the NewHaven Display International’s capacitive multi-touch screens of multiple sizes and options. These boards were custom designed in the Geppetto™ Design-to-Order tool to support the advanced technology needs of handheld and smart home devices. The Arbor boards feature a parallel RBG touch panel interface that connects to an appropriately sized capacitive multi-touch screen. The prominent connectivity options on this board include a 10/100 Base-T Ethernet jack, stereo audio-out and line-in and USB Host and USB On-The-Go (OTG). The boards are different for each screen size, to support screens variations in physical dimensions, screen resolution, TFT driver and cable placement. The Arbor expansion boards are based on the popular Overo COM series, which utilize either the Sitara™ AM3703 processor or the DM3730 media processors from Texas Instruments (TI).

The Arbor Expansion boards emphasize performance, flexibility, ease of integration and reduced system cost.

Custom Designed in Geppetto
All three boards were designed in Geppetto, a free, online Design-To-Order tool, which allows users to compare module cost during design, create multiple projects and share ideas. Each Arbor board is placed in the “Designed by Gumstix” library and can be cloned and modified to meet custom design requirements. Geppetto designs can be designed online in a day and shipped production ready in 15 business days.
