TIMI-130 Starter Kit

by BreadBoard Mates

TIMI-130 is a 1.3" full colour IPS smart display instrument that replaces and simulates many electronic parts. With hundreds of built-in widgets, TIMI-130 empowers you to build projects you never thought possible.

Out of the box, TIMI simulates many typical components used in most breadboard based projects. Save time (and money) by using TIMI to replace messy wires and expensive components for your projects.

Whether you’re a hobbyist or an engineer, you can now deploy hundreds of components without ordering additional physical parts.

Pixxi-28 Graphics Processor

Powered by an embedded graphics processor which hosts built-in services to view high-quality widgets, images, icons and even video.

1.3″ Full Colour RGB-IPS Display

Wrapped in a sleek metal frame, TIMI can be viewed at any angle. Boasting a full RBG (65K vivid colors) IPS display with 240×240 resolution.

32MB Flash for TIMI Graphics

On-board 32MB flash memory for all the graphical widgets, images and animations.

matesBUS Interface 2×5 Pin Configuration

Connecting TIMI to your breadboard is hassle-free because of the built-in 5 pins. Save valuable GPIO pins on your host controller.

Key Benefits of TIMI

  • Pre-Designed Pages - With a library of hundreds of pre-designed pages that are ready to use, no wasted time is required to design realistic GUIs.
  • Reduce Clutter - TIMI reduces Clutter on Breadboards, by simulating many optoelectronic and electro-mechanical parts.
  • Bring Excitement - Brings excitement to boring projects by adding an extra dimension to your project with vivid graphics.
  • Save GPIO Pins - Saves valuable GPIO pins of the host micro from connecting to physical parts.
  • Debugging Terminal - Quick and easy to use for debugging of host software application, by TIMI becoming a TEXT/ICON type serial terminal.
  • Interface to any Host - TIMI is compatible with: Arduino, Raspberry Pi, PICO, PIC, AVR, STM, ARM, Beaglebone, ESP32/8266, Propeller, PICAXE, micro:Bit and any other host that has a serial interface.

TIMI-130 Features

TIMI-130’s main interface is a 3.3V level Asynchronous Serial UART and features 3 GPIO which can be used as Digital or Analog inputs, Digital Outputs, Master I2C Communication or PWM Audio output. These interfaces arm TIMI with resources to be either a stand-alone controller, a Host driven slave, or a tethered test instrument, while being capable of interfacing and powering external devices itself.

Mates Studio

Software Development Suite for TIMI-130 Starter Kit

  • COMMANDER - The Commander environment enables the user to create projects by selecting page layouts from a selection of predesigned user interfaces from Breadboard Mates team and community.
  • ARCHITECT - The Architect environment enables the user to design projects with custom pages and widgets. This gives more designing capabilities than the Commander environment.
  • GENIUS - The Genius environment enables the user to design projects with custom pages and widgets and write code. This removes the need for an external host to control the display.
  • BUILDER - The Builder environment enables projects with custom pages and widgets and builds the process flow using graphical/block programming, removing the need for an external host to control the display
