4D Systems has announced the release of the modules-on-the-go (MOTG) Series offering a simple plug-and-play interface to the 4D systems gen4 range of DIABL016 and PICASO intelligent display modules. In order to meet the demand for additional display modules interface and communication capabilities, the MOTG Series has been specifically designed to cater to the customer needs.
To offer this connectivity, the company has developed the Universal MOTG Interface (UMI), published as an open standard. Initially, the series would include 4 modules offering Wi-Fi, Bluetooth (BLE), RS232 or RS485 connectivity. These modules are plugged into an interface board that also links to either a gen4 DIABL016 or PICASO display. The fifth module would add MP3 playback functionality.
