Gumstix' Arbor 43C, Geppetto-designed, with Capacitive Multi-Touch Capability

The Arbor series of expansion boards adds support for screens from Newhaven Display to the Overo line.   The "43C" calls out a 4.3" capacitive multi-touch LCD touchscreen, while the Arbor series offers Ethernet, stereo-out, mic-in, USB Host, and a 20-pin header breaking out GPIO and PWM lines. "The addition of capacitive touchscreen support to the Overo family makes designing tiny, fully-functional devices even easier," said W. Gordon Kruberg, MD, President and CEO of Gumstix.  "The Arbor 43C's multi-touch capabilities and the new screen from Newhaven Display offer a wide array of possibilities for our customers in the development of intuitive computing." 

"We are pleased that Gumstix is dedicated to providing rapid development and production capabilities to our valued customers," said Curt Lagerstam, Engineering Manager of Newhaven Display.  The Arbor 43C expansion board was designed using the Geppetto design-­and­-build system, which enables anyone to create custom Linux-­powered electronics. The Arbor 43C is compatible with all Overo-series COMs, including the new STORM-P variants. The packaged kit combining Arbor 43C with AirSTORM-P is available for $299.  The Arbor 43C is available for $70, and the Newhaven Display touchscreen is available for $58 at store.gumstix.com.  Volume discounts are available.
