Smart TFT Display for Arduino Adds Wi-Fi


Bridgetek has now added wireless connectivity to its popular CleO smart displays with the CleO35-WiFi module. It transmits and receives in the 2.4GHz frequency band and enables control and monitoring of smart devices within the domestic environment.

The CleO35-WiFi module is compliant with the commonly used IEEE 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi standards.

The module can achieve +20dBm output power when in 802.11b mode, while support for WPA and WPA2 wireless security safeguards against unauthorised access to data streams.


Drawing off a 3.3V supply, the CleO35 is supplied with a standard 16-pin 0.5mm pitch flexible, flat cable (FFC) that allows it to be connected directly to Bridgetek’s CleO35 board (with 3.5-inch thin film transistor (TFT) display) or to the Bridgetek CleO-IO shield so that it can be used by the larger CleO50 board (with five-inch TFT display).

The CleO35 features an Ai-Thinker ESP-12S Wi-Fi subsystem. This is based on the compact, integrated 32-bit ESP8266 processor – with antenna switch, radio frequency (RF) filters, power amplifier, low noise receive amplifier, digital peripheral interface and power management functions all included.

Bridgetek has also introduced a new development module for its FT93x series of 32-bit microcontroller units (MCUs).

The MM930Lite module measures 66.8 x 85mm. It complements Bridgetek’s existing suite of development hardware and software tools.

According to the company, the MM930Lite provides engineers with a platform to evaluate the performance parameters of the MCU, carry out initial prototyping, or construct systems from the ground up within a short period of time.

Applications for the MM930Lite include building security/door entry mechanisms, home automation infrastructure, industrial control implementations and embedded multimedia equipment.
