Get RS-485 working with Linux out of the box.

If you need RS-485 Linux, we’ve figured it out.

If your project requires an RS-485 Linux interface, we have done most of the work for you. There are lots of little details that if you don’t get them right, it won’t work, or it won’t work efficiently (e.g. long turnaround times in half duplex mode). We have the right driver for your application. Find out more about the available RS-485 ports and see some code.

Get started with a RS-485 Linux Development Kit.

Get a Development Kit (G2C1 Models) and there will be no messing around wasting time figuring out RS-485 Linux interface tricks (i.e. setting drivers to account for low latency). When you buy a Development Kit ($399 Resistive, $449 Projected Capacitive) we help setup the correct drivers for your application. Kits include the hardware, software, and support you need to quickly create a prototype. When you are ready, move smoothly into production with off-the-shelf display modules that offer 5-7 years availability as a minimum.

  • Proven Hardware: We have been selling modules since 2003. We have hundreds of happy customers because our products work.
  • Full Software Support: It can be hard to avoid finger pointing if you buy hardware from Vendor A and software from Vendor B. We offer both with complete support to get over prototype hurdles, then move smoothly into production.
  • Long Term Supply: 5-7 years as a minimum. Made in the USA for quality and availability.
