OLED Programmable Button Panel-Image

The OLED Programmable Button Panel is a revolutionary step forward in configurable button technology. Now, dynamic content and animation sequencing can be displayed on each intelligent panel button.

Coupled with programmable RGB (Red, Green, Blue) LED's on the perimeter of each button assembly, one can easily create exciting, interactive content for each button using simple Windows-Based tool.


The OLED Programmable Button Panel supports multiple button assemblies. Each button assembly incorporates a clear plastic button top over a graphical OLED display and a translucent bezel. Under the bezel and around the perimeter of each button is an array of 24 programmable RGB LED's.

Each button contains an on-board microcontroller and flash memory for local content storage. Each button can store multiple sequences and animations. Buttons are accessed and controlled via a single USB (HID) connection from the Host application. No special drivers are required. The USB protocol handles error checking, acknowledgements, etc.

Animation sequences are built, tested and downloaded to the panel using a simple, Windows based software tool called the Resource Builder.
