Description
This datasheet covers the gen4-IB (Interface board) which is compatible with all of the gen4 range of
Intelligent Display modules which feature Picaso or Diablo16 graphics processors, along with the pixxiLCD
range of display modules too. It is included with every display module, and is a quick and easy way to
interface to the gen4 range, without having to break out the signals from the 30-way FFC cable.
The gen4-IB is a simple interface that converts the 30-way FFC cable coming from your gen4 display module,
into the common 5 signals used for programming and interfacing to 4D Systems products. The remaining
signals from the display module are not accessible through this interface board. Please refer to the gen4-
PA (Programming Adaptor) or UPA (Universal Programming Adaptor) which are USB programmers for the
display modules, and also breaks out all of the signals from the display.
If you have existing 4D Products and have a uUSB-PA5 or uUSB-PA5-II, or even a 4D Programming Cable,
then you can use these programming devices via the gen4-IB to program the display modules directly,
without the need of a gen4-PA board.
The gen4-IB can be used to interface with 4D Programming devices, as mentioned above, for interfacing to
a breadboard for prototyping, interfacing to Arduino and Raspberry Pi interfaces (see gen4 -AR and -PI kits),
or for interfacing to virtually any host.
The gen4-IB has no processor, requires no drivers or any software. It is a simple interface only, converting
the signals from the 30-way FFC cable from the display module, and breaking out the 5 important signals
required for programming and basic interfacing.
More information can be found inside the datasheet for the specific display module being used. Please
refer to the 4D Systems website and the product page of your chosen product, for more information.

Example Hardware Connections
The following pictures illustrate how to connect the parts of a gen4 display module together, specifically
utilising the gen4-IB. Note, the display module illustrated below is the gen4-uLCD-32DT.

Figure 3. Components in the AR Kit connected together. The gen4-IB interfaces to the gen4 display module, and
to the Arduino Adaptor Shield via our 5-way cable.
