Achieve 30 frames of animation per second on resource-constrained hardware to deliver an intuitive user experience (UX) that increases productivity
Manufacturers of industrial devices strive to deliver to their customers—factories producing manufactered goods, oil, gas, food, and pharmaceuticals—high quality graphical displays and highly efficient devices that increase productivity. The industrial devices industry faces several challenges: leveraging the investment R&D has made in the development of a graphical display across numerous product offerings; reducing the development cycle and bill of materials (BOM) to cut costs; and providing customers with an intuitive user experience (UX) that delivers upon their goal of increasing productivity.
How does Crank StoryBoard Suite help manufacturers of industrial devices?
The Crank™ Storyboard™ Suite is comprised of two modules that form a UI development optimization solution for developers of products that require an embedded dynamic graphical display for resource-constrained devices.
Portable across your product portfolio—reuse and customize graphical display to leverage your investment in R&D
The OS-agnostic Crank Storyboard Embedded Engine supports any hardware your OS supports
Decreases development time because the UI designers and embedded systems engineers work in parallel as opposed to an iterative approach. Working in parallel enables UI designers to do what they do best, and enables engineers to do what they do best. The end result: the best possible graphical display that delivers on the UX goal of increasing productivity.
Clean design, clean architecture, and drag-and-drop functionality
Embedded Engine is native-UI technology, which delivers 30 frames of animation per second on resource-constrained hardware. To make a comparison, Adobe Flash delivers one or two frames of animation per second on resource-constrained hardware.
Memory requirements scale to your needs. Expect about 200-500K depending on the profile plus the sum of all of the grapical assets on the current displayed screen. Minimizes impact on the BOM.
