GUI tool for MCUs targets HMIs
The SH7724 is the latest MCU from Renesas’ SuperH lineup. Based on the SH4A core, the SH7724 device operates at 500MHz, delivering 900DMIPS and 3.5GFLOPS of performance. It features high performance hardware video processing and graphics acceleration allowing up to 720p video at 30fps, and an integrated LCD control unit, as such it is the flagship product at the high end of the SuperH portfolio.
The SH7724 MCU target markets include industrial, thanks to the the SH7724 device also offering industrial temperature specification. Video conference system and security systems are also targeted, as well as portable navigation, where the quality of the GUI is often the key selling point of the application. In-home display for metering is a growing application area, where a superior GUI can also be the key to consumer acceptance.
GUIliani is TES’ solution for graphical user interfaces on embedded systems, saying it combines the convenience of a PC based development tool-chain with the benefits of a highly-optimized software framework specifically designed for use in embedded hardware platforms such as Renesas Electronics’ SH7724 MCU.
Together, TES claims the solution allows users to create stunning graphical HMIs easily, and literally in minutes. GUIliani is also fully flexible and scalable across a range of platforms.
