Infineon Technologies has teamed with the Qt Group to add a graphics controller to its Traveo  T2G cluster microcontrollers

The collaboration brings Qt’s lightweight, high-performance graphics framework to Infineon’s graphics-enabled microcontroller to enhance the development of an automotive graphical user interface (GUI) with intelligent rendering.

The Traveo T2G is aimed at automotive instrument clusters, two-wheelers, construction machinery, industrial and medical applications. This provides graphical user interfaces with high refresh rates and up to full HD resolution and integrating the Qt graphics enables 5x more efficient memory usage, half the boot time and half the development time.

The high end T2G CYT4DN for example has two 320MHz ARM Cortex-M7 cores with 2.5D/720pGFX, line-based 4MB VRAM, 1x VI1,2x VO2,JPEG decoder, HYPERBUS high speed memory, 6MB flash, 640K RAM audio, SMC and Ethernet in a  327 ball BGA.

“Whether in the automotive industry, healthcare or industrial automation, responsive user interfaces with high-quality graphics are essential,” said Toni Paila, Director, Qt for MCUs at Qt Group. “However, the MCUs used for these applications typically lack integrated advanced design and development tools especially for modern user interfaces. We are therefore proud to support Infineon in bridging this gap and enabling device manufacturers to deliver outstanding user interfaces with low memory footprints on their MCUs. This will allow designers to create GUIs that were previously considered impossible due to resource constraints.”

“Qt’s efficient design and development workflow, coupled with over 30 years of production experience in various industries, has accelerated our UI application development,” said Ralf Ködel, Vice President Microcontrollers at Infineon. “By extending this efficiency to our microcontrollers, our customers can significantly shorten the time to market – from product design to production.”

The TRAVEO T2G cluster microcontroller products featuring Qt’s advanced graphical libraries are now available.; .
