Infineon Technologies has launched an embedded wizard tool for developing graphics interfaces on its PSoC6 microcontrollers.

The Embedded Wizard’s Graphics Engine uses technology from TV interface developer TARA Systems in Munich. The Wizard is compatible with the ModusToolbox and runs on the CY8CKIT-062S2-43012 development kit with a complete user guide and support for Embedded Wizard Studio. PSoC 6 designers can improve the end-user experience with graphic interfaces (GUIs) that can be easily deployed to their hardware with a smaller memory footprint for use cases such as voice and graphics targeting wearables, white appliances and more.

The PSoC 6 MCU also features the latest generation of Infineon’s industry-leading CAPSENSE capacitive-sensing technology, enabling modern touch and gesture-based interfaces that are robust and reliable.

“Designers now have a larger set of software tools to support high-performance graphics for their PSoC 6 MCU applications with Embedded Wizard,” said Danny Watson, Principal Software Product Marketing Manager at Infineon. “Our PSoC 6 family delivers easy-to-use, low-power IoT applications with a unique consumer experience for battery-powered applications. We are thrilled to offer the complete Embedded Wizard tool suite with our PSoC 6 family.”

The embedded GUI technology from TARA Systems enables designers to create platform-independent, high-performance GUIs on resource-constrained MCUs. With Embedded Wizard, designers can generate new graphic interfaces to deploy on PSoC 6 MCUs. Additionally, designers can still run existing graphical demonstrations on their PSoC hardware.

The 40nm PSoC 6 devices have a choice of dual ARM Cortex-M4 or Cortex-M0+ cores to optimize for power and performance simultaneously. Designers can use the MCU’s software-defined peripherals to create custom analog front-ends (AFEs) or digital interfaces for innovative system components such as electronic-ink displays.

Embedded Wizard’s downloadable software is available on the CY8CKIT-062S2-43012 software development kit with a complete user guide and support for the tools.
