Product Information

Product Information

The Color Passive-MatrixAudioMini-TouchPanels(AXD-CP4/AandAXT-CP4/A)contain a4-inch256-colorpassive-matrixliquid crystal display (LCD). These panels are equipped with an infrared motion sensor, light sensor, IR receiver, internal audio speakers, internal microphone, external LED buttons, and removable buttons. Using the TPDesign3 Touch Panel Design program, you can create custom pages with buttons, icons, sliders, bargraphs, time displays, logos, and drawings.

The AXD-CP4/Ais designed for wall mounting with a Wall Mount faceplate. The AXD unit also uses anoptional CB-CP4/A conduit/wall box for"pre-wall"surfaces.

The AXD-CP4/Apanels come inserted within a plastic backbox (mountable into most surfaces) that should not be confused with the optional metalCB-CP4/Aconduit box (metallic optional component).

FIG. 1 shows the AXD-CP4/AandAXT-CP4/Apanels.

Memory

 

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

(factory default):

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

on-panelFactory Reset button.

 

 

• 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)
