The GEMboard™ and GEMexpress™ product families consist of plug-and-play display controller boards and universal display driver boards for TFT and OLED displays. Not only do the board level solutions provide you with flexibility when choosing a display, but they also provide you with a short time-to-market. Without having to spend extra time and money on board designs, you can spend more time perfecting your user interface design, application hardware and industrial design to create a leading product for your industry.
GEMexpress™ II is a production ready universal display driver board for TFT and OLED displaysthat can interface to displays from various manufacturers, allowing for greater design flexibility and a shorter time-to-market.
There is much less engineering work when integrating an embedded user interface using a GEMexpress™ II board compared to the traditional approach of designing in an LCD controller chip, thus designers save a lot of time and cut costs. Designers can be in production as fast as choosing a display and integrating it with a board that meets their display and embedded user interface design requirements.
Includes enhanced memory features for better performance in higher resolution color TFT and OLED displays!
(GCC-2) GEMexpress™ II has a storage capacity of 64 megabit serial flash for storing GUI pages and 256 megabit SDRAM (frame buffer) for enhanced performance in higher resolution color TFT and OLED displays.
The GEMexpress™ II features an Amulet 225 BGA GEM Graphical OS Chip™ (AGB75LC04-BG-E), an integrated 4- or 5-wire touch panel decoder, and 3.3v UART, TWI, and USB serial interfaces. This small and compact display driver board measures 1.5" x 3.0" and fits within the outline of a 3.5" TFT.

The GEMboard™ product family consists of plug-and-play controller boards optimized for driving popular displays in a size range or for driving a specific display from one of Amulet’s display partners. If you don’t see a GEMboard™ that fits your display requirements, please contact us!
(CBC-2) GEMboard™ II is a plug-and-play production display controller board. It includes everything for driving many popular 5.7" to 10.4" displays up to 640x480 (VGA) color LCDs, including support for backlight and touch panels. GEMboard II integrates easily with many 5.7" displays and comes standard with a 33-pin connector and flat panel cable. A 31-pin connector is optional for supporting a variety of other LCDs. It also includes an Amulet GEM Graphical OS Chip™, a 32-megabit serial flash for storing GUI pages, and a 64-megabit SDRAM, two touch panel connectors, as well as two LED backlight connectors to accommodate a variety of 5.7" displays.

GEMexpress and GEMboard customers can experience the unique benefits of designing their GUI with GEMstudio™, the easiest, fastest and most flexible graphical user interface (GUI) design tool in the embedded space. GEMstudio integrates tools for visual layout, interactive PC based simulation, and programming of the flash memory in the target embedded hardware. It's a true WYSIWYG GUI design tool that requires no coding for the GUI design. Using the GEMstudio drag-and-drop GUI development environment for creating color touchscreen human-machine-interfaces (HMIs) for embedded systems allows designers to create smartphone-like graphical user interfaces in days or weeks, instead of months, or years.
“With Amulet we were able to complete our basic user interface in less than two hours, saving me months of hardware design and programming effort - and it freed up nearly 80% of our processor resources!”
- Mark Doble, President,MD Designs, Tampa, FL
