UI development uses Mentor Graphics’ Inflexion

Technology News |
STMicroelectronics is using the Mentor Embedded Inflexion User Interface (UI) software product on its SPEAr (Structured Processor Enhanced Architecture) family of processors, which are based on ARM core technology. ST claims that the integration of the Inflexion UI product on SPEAr processors will enable rapid implementation of rich and dynamic 2D and 3D UIs.

The Inflexion UI can be used on the SPEAr 320 processors, which run on ARM A926EJ-S, and will also be available shortly on the newest SPEAr1300 ARM-CortexA9 family with its powerful Open GL/ES graphics acceleration.

The Mentor Embedded Inflexion UI can be used by developers to develop rich, dynamic, 3D consumer UIs as well as specialized 2D UIs in industrial and medical products, using a drag-and-drop approach via the Inflexion UI Express PC tool. It is available for Android, Linux and Nucleus OSes.

“The availability of Inflexion on the SPEAr embedded microprocessors will greatly accelerate UI development by pairing our excellent tools with a well-designed processor,” stated Glenn Perry, General Manager of Mentor Graphics Embedded Software Division “The SPEAr processor family targets a broad range of applications, from wireless access devices, printers, security systems to medical and diagnostic equipment, so having customized UIs for human to machine interface is critical.”

Manufactured in low-power 90nm, 65nm and 55nm HCMOS (high-speed CMOS) process technologies, ST’s SPEAr embedded microprocessors combine one or two advanced ARM926 processor cores and Dual Cortex A9 cores with memory interfaces, and a large set of IP blocks delivering connectivity, communication, and audio/video functions for a broad range of applications.
