UnicView AD LCMs operate at 120ms cycles (12 Screen updates per second), which is usually faster than humans can reliably detect.
Most applications use a maximum of about 10 or 20 Variables per Screen. It's very unlikely that a single Screen in any project will need more than 128 Variables.
The main difference is the application market. Traditional HMIs are designed targeting domain-specific applications, while UnicView AD LCMs are general-purpose modules that can be easily applied to almost any target market.
Other relevant differences include higher reliability, stability, interference resistance, and lower costs due to royalty-free strategy.
UnicView AD is so simple that it can be used to create very complex interfaces, like multi-parameter monitors, in just a few hours (for medium-experience developers).
On the first step, the interface project is designed on UnicView AD software, by importing images, laying out the buttons and views visually and configuring the LCM parameters.
On the second step, the interface project is downloaded into the LCM.
On the third step, the LCM is connected to the product's microcontroller, which exchanges data to and from the LCM.
UnicView AD is mainly designed to enable MCU developers to create User Interfaces with full graphical and touch screen support rapidly and reliably.
