Accelerate time to market, achieve high ROI and low TCO
It’s your responsibility to ensure that the product is delivered on time, projects are appropriately resourced, and costs are managed. The Crank Storyboard Suite includes embedded user interface (UI) development products for manufacturers of resource-constrained embedded devices requiring a rich UI user experience (UX). Storyboard corrects the technical gap that exists between what the UI experts define and what the engineers deliver. Forward-thinking executives and managers that bridge that gap make the best use of their resources, shorten the design cycle, and optimize hardware performance.
Here are proof pointsto accompany our statements that Storyboard acclerates the time to market of your products, delivers a high return on investment, and delivers a low total cost of ownership.
Commercializing a GPS golf card would typically take 4man months (75 days). Our customer used Crank Storyboard Suite to complete their end-to-end development lifecycle in one and a half man months (30 days)—accelerated time to market by 60% plus reduced the development costs.
Our customer exceeded an aggressive timeline deploying a stereo receiver that enabled browsing an iPod on TV. Storyboard is the innovation that made it possible to reduce their development cycle from months to weeks.
Embedded Engine uses approximately 30-80% less CPU. Embedded Engine understands CPU usage, memory utilization, graphical display depth, hard offloading, embedded architecture, and communication optimized hardware. Embedded Engine utilizes the hardware to increase the performance and capabilities. An example of this is a slide from one screen to another—it can be done using the hardware layers found on most ARM processors and allow for smooth screen transitions with next to no CPU usage and zero dropped frames.
Embedded Engine is native-UI technology, which delivers 30 frames of animation per second on low-end hardware.
