Do away with many components, using one companion.

Compact and feature-packed

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.

PIXXI44 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 Graphics Assets

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-130X Features

TIMI-130X’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 capable of interfacing and powering external devices.

Mates Studio

Software Development Suite for TIMI-130X


The Commander environment enables the user to create projects by selecting page layouts from predesigned user interfaces from the Breadboard Mates team and community.


The Architect environment enables the user to design projects with custom pages and widgets. This gives more designing capabilities than the Commander environment.


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.


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.
