Last modified by Microchip on 2024/05/28 13:56

Introduction

Microchip graphics development kits are hardware and software tools provided by Microchip Technology Inc. for the development of Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) on embedded systems. These kits are designed to help engineers and developers create sophisticated graphics for applications that run on Microchip microcontrollers (MCUs) or microprocessors (MPUs).

Hardware Configurations

Microchip offers scalable embedded graphics solutions to support a wide range of display interfaces and hardware configurations across different platforms.
