CuWIN3500 is a Windows CE based Rugged Embedded Controller!

Comfile Technology has launched their new Touchscreen PLC/embedded computer based on Windows CE called CuWIN3500.

The CuWIN3500 is based on an ARM9 32bit 266Mhz processor with a 7-inch 800×480 pixel touchscreen display pad.

On top of that, the CuWIN3500 supports up to 2GB of SD cards, 64MB of RAM, 64MB of NAND Flash, 1MB of NOR flash, internal mono speakers, and also an option to hook up your stereo headphones.

The whole thing can be programmed via a .NET framework and you can also use Visual Basic to program.

What does it do?

Well, it’s for industrial developers and hobbyists who want a fast color touchscreen module.  You can hook up motors, sensors, etc…etc…  It’s like a touchscreen version of Arduino or Basic Stamp basically.  Get the idea???

I just got a free sample here so I might do a video review and give it out as a contest but in the meanwhile, this little touchscreen device goes for $599.00.

If there’s enough requests, I will hold a contest for the unit I got in couple weeks.  (Leave a comment if you want one!)

    Who WOULDNT want one of these?? That would be amazing for a home automation controller if it was placed in a wall :)

    I’d love to have this when you are done with it. It would be great for my home automation system.
    Thanks,
    -Shane

    Well, I will have it up for a contest if there’s enough people who want it. I got this thing sitting by my computer and I should really use it because it is kinda cool…all touchscreen and everything…

  4. Theron Burger says:

    Man thats cool, and its got RS485, which isnt standard most of the time, makes life soooo much easier
    plans are being drawn up to link this to the house as we speak! :P
    Pitty about the jacks on the side, makes it harder to mount in a wall, i guess you could just rewire it, but thats not the point

    and if your giving it away, count me into the compo :P

    chau

    OH man! Ive been dying to get my hands on something like that for my thesis project next year. If I win Ill be sooooo grateful. Looking forward to the review!

  6. max says:

    Well…i guess i might have to give it out now… let me do a full video review tomorrow…

  7. jonr says:

    Fantastic kit, and a giveaway – count me in :-)

  8. rkk says:

    I’m thinking auto PC, real time telemetry, long range IR monitor, etc .

  9. Sarah says:

    Me too :) This would be awesome.

  10. Joacim says:

    I’d want one, perfect to mount in the shower or just inside the door so you can turn on the music or the computer just inside the door!

  11. Brian Gaut says:

    haha… i think its funny how whenever you say you have a give-away all these people show up out of the cracks :P

  12. max says:

    Lol… yeah i will have to think of a contest first, any ideas?

  13. Ray Salem says:

    I suggest a random draw, just pull one of the names out of a hat … seems fair to all the commentors. As an alternative maybe by need e.g. a broke student (hint hint).
    BTW, when is the review coming?

  14. Theron Burger says:

    haha, Max I cant say that would work out so well for you, so id say go for the random draw, The reeason i say that is we are a rather poor training institute in an african country :P We teach science through robotics, well, basic robotics anyway, check us out if you want, http://www.rossum.co.za

    Joacim, been thinking of a shower interface actually, so ill let you in on my little plan. I recently came across an old projector with no globe, for R100 (roughly $13) and slapped in an old slide projector globe, all in all it cost about R300 to get working. Iv been playing arround with touchlibs multitouch interface as well.
    The idea is to put some IR LEDs on the top of the glass shower door, ala Internal Refraction, project onto the door from the other side of the room, and pop a webcam ontop of the projector. Vola, a shower based multitouch PC interface. I wanted it for orgonising my day, but it could easily control music too
