Product Information

Product Information

The AMX Color Video Panels (CV6) contain a 6" (14.40 cm visible area) 256-coloractive-matrixliquid crystal display (LCD) placed in either a Wall Mount or Tabletop enclosure(AC-CV6T).Thisself-containedsystem uses a microprocessor to control a wide range of multimedia equipment. The TPDesign3 touch panel design program makes it possible to create custom pages with buttons, icons, sliders, bargraphs, time displays, logos, and drawings.

The AXD-CV6(CV6) is designed for wall mounting with a detachable bezel and the use of an optionalCB-CV6conduit/wall box forpre-installedsurfaces. FIG. 1 shows the 6" Color Video Wall Panel.

Memory:

• 512 KB of SRAM and 2 MB of Flash for a total memory of 2.5 MB.

 

The following is a detailed explanation of the on-boardmemory parameters:

 

• Graphics Buffer Memory:

 

- SGRAM

 

- 1 Mbit x 32 ==> 4 MByte

 

- Non-useraccessible

 

- Volatile

 

• Flash Memory:

 

- CMOS Flash

 

- 16 MBit x 8 ==> 2 MByte

 

- Partially user accessible

 

- Non-volatile

 

Note: ~400 kByte is used by the firmware and is accessible only to the

 

firmware during both normal operation and firmware downloads.

 

Note: ~1600 kByte is used by the user program and is used by TPD3

 

designs for bitmaps, icons, and fonts. This can be cleared using either the

 

external "ZAP!" command or the on-panelFactory Reset button.

 

• RAM:

 

- SRAM

 

- 256 kByte x 16 ==> 512 kByte

 

- Partially user accessible

 

- Non-volatilevia the battery backup (volatile when batteries are removed)

 

Note: 256 kByte is used by firmware and is accessible only to the firmware

 

during normal operation.

 

Note: 256 kByte is used by the user program and is used by TPD3 designs

 

for buttons, pages, and everything else not listed in the above Flash param-

 

eter. This can be cleared using the external "ZAP!" command or

 

on-panelFactory Reset button.

 

• Component Video Buffer Memory:

 

- DRAM

 

- 256 kByte x 16 ==> 512 kByte

 

- Non-useraccessible

 

- Volatile

 

• Clock Chip:

 

- RAM

 

- 31 Byte

 

- Non-useraccessible

 

- Non-volatilevia the battery backup (volatile when batteries removed)

 

- 31 bytes are used by the firmware to store AMX configuration information.

 

Note: If the battery is removed to clear the memory, it wipes out the AMX

 

configuration information.

 

• EPLD:

 

- EEPROM

 

- 32 Macrocells

 

- Non-useraccessible

 

- Non-volatile

 

- Used by hardware for board logic (unable to clear or update)
