Tailor-made for highly-responsive industrial experiences

Storyboard gives industrial GUI designers and embedded software developers a smooth, continual workflow to design, develop, and validate simultaneously. With WYSIWYG editing, industrial development teams get a visual of the product on the target device, where behavior can be optimized in real-time, resulting in reliable performance without having to compromise between sophisticated UX design and platform resources.

Reduce development cycles

With role-specific tools and languages, and a parallel workflow for instant validation, teams can work at an accelerated pace.

Do more with less

You won’t need the largest processor to achieve what you’re looking for anymore, so you can reduce your overall BOM.

Re-use GUI designs

Leverage the investment R&D has already made in the development of displays, and re-use them across other product lines.
