There are a variety of different image formats available for embedded UIs. This live will cover when and where they should be used, how to handle memory fragmentation, and use flash memory as a place to store content, while still leveraging RAM optimal for execution.
In this live video, hear Thomas Fletcher, Crank Software's Co-Founder and VP R&D, talk about the different memory optimization options available for those building on MCUs and MPUs, and how to organize memory use for highest performance.
Join Crank Software's Lead Product Architect, Rodney Dowdall, as he demonstrates all the great new enhancements introduced within Storyboard 7.0.
This includes the introduction of automatic table looping that removes the need to manually write code to do it, screen transitioning via a screen drag, gradients not tied to a canvas making it possible to rendered on MCU platforms, and imported SVG files rasterized on export to reduce performance requirements during runtime making it even easier to build tightly-resourced GUIs that are ideal for power-efficient hardware.
The writing on the wall is clear. The considerable growth and massive investment in smart devices combined with the promise of AI and ML has opened new vistas for IOT-led innovation. Thanks to processors such as those in the NXP i.MX 8M family of applications processors, and advancements in HMI technology expediated by embedded graphics tools such as Crank Storyboard, consumers have plenty to get excited about when it comes to connected devices.
Crank and NXP have joined forces to offer Crank Storyboard as part of the MCUXpresso SDK. It's now easier and faster than ever to include a smartphone-like UI in your i.MX RT Series-based application.
With these solutions being scalable yet affordable, you no longer have to compromise on a modern UI design.
*The MCUXpresso SDK brings open source drivers, middleware, and reference example applications together to speed up your development process.
With 25+ years of embedded expertise, our team of designers, developers and engineers have you covered and can jump in to help you with your project any time.
