Segger in Germany is working with GigaDevice to provide the emWin embedded system graphics library free of charge on GD32 microcontrollers.

The GD32 from GigaDevice has versions using the ARM Cortex-M3, -M4, -M23, -M33, and -M7 cores for mainstream embedded designs which can now using the emWin graphics library and AppWizard from Segger.

This follows a deal to provide free tools for GigaDevice microcontrollers using a RISC-V core that are pin compatible with the ARM devices. Segger has also combined support for ARM and RISC-V in its integrated development environment (IDE).

The GD32 family has 46 product series and more than 600 devices, with compatibility throughout. emWin is a graphical user interface optimized for minimum memory consumption, both in RAM and ROM, as well as for high speed and versatility. It provides high-quality graphic functions and can be adapted to any size display, physical or virtual. It is compatible with single-task and multitask environments, with a proprietary operating system or with any commercial RTOS such as SEGGER’s embOS and embOS-Ultra.

The AppWizard enables the creation of highly efficient and high-quality graphical user interfaces on any embedded system without requiring in-depth knowledge of the emWin graphics library or even the C language for coding.

“We are very pleased to further expand our strategic partnership with Segger to further enhance our graphical user interface solutions based on GD32 Cortex-M series MCU with emWin,” says GigaDevice.

“emWin can help developers achieve professional embedded GUI in a short time, and also has excellent performance on resource-limited platforms. In the end, the corresponding C language program code is generated, which can greatly reduce the development difficulty and the time to market.”

“We continue to be impressed by the innovation at GigaDevice and are happy to be supporting their products as we have done for many years,” says Segger. “We look forward to strengthening our partnership for years to come and to continuing to innovate and enhance our products.”

The free commercial GDemWin GUI library is available via the GD32 website or SEGGER’s GigaDevice page.
