NEXTION INTRODUCTION

What’s Nextion

Nextion is a Human Machine Interface (HMI) solution combining an onboard processor and memory touch display with Nextion Editor software for HMI GUI project development.

Using the Nextion Editor software, you can quickly develop the HMI GUI by drag-and-drop components (graphics, text, button, slider, etc.) and ASCII text-based instructions for coding how components interact on the display side.

Nextion HMI display connects to peripheral MCU via TTL Serial (5V, TX, RX, GND) to provide event notifications that peripheral MCU can act on, the peripheral MCU can easily update progress, and status back to Nextion display utilizing simple ASCII text-based instructions.

Our mission is to reduce the HMI development workloads.

WHY NEXTION

Nextion Offers an Ease of Use and Cost-effective HMI Solution for You.

Quick and Easy GUI

The Nextion Editor software offers an easy way to create the intuitive and superb touch user interface even for beginners. Add a static picture as background, define functions by components, you can make a simple GUI in minutes. The easy Drag-and-Drop components and simple ASCII text based instructions will dramatically reduce your HMI project development workloads.

Nextion HMI as an autonomous data logger with Data Record, GPIO and RTC

A classic data logger would use a MCU and its GPIO pins, a SD card, a RTC, an LCD status display and many lines of code. Today, I'll show you that you can have all in one, using a Nextion Intelligent series HMI and thus reduces cost and development time: First, the Intelligent series has everything "on board", the MCU, the GPIO pins, the RTC, the screen, and the SD card. Second, a very powerful component, the Data Record is available for these HMI displays in the Nextion Editor, which saves us, let's say around 500 lines of C code. But telling you this is one thing, giving you a demo project at hands which covers all functionalities and which you can modify and extend as you need for your project is today's topic. 

Feed a waveform component – from a lookup table

After two theory-loaded blog posts about handling data array-like in strings (Strings, arrays, and the less known sp(lit)str(ing) function and Strings & arrays - continued) which you are highly recommended to read before continuing here, if you haven't already, it's big time to see how things work in practice! We'll use a string variable as a lookup lookup table containing data of one single wave period and add this repeatedly to a waveform component until it's full.

Strings & arrays – continued

A few weeks ago, I wrote this article about using a text variable as an array, either an array of strings or an array of numbers, using the covx conversion function in addition for the latter, to extract single elements with the help of the spstr function. It's a convenient and almost a "one fits all" solution for most use cases and many of the demo projects or the sample code attached to the Nextion Sunday Blog articles made use of it, sometimes even without mentioning it explicitly since it's almost self-explaining. Then, I got a message from a reader, writing: "... Why then didn't you use it for the combined sine / cosine lookup table in the flicker free turbo gauge project?"
