Crank Software

An authorized NXP GUI builder


NXP Partner for 10+ years

Using the winning combination of NXP's high-performance applications processor and Storyboard’s collaborative and intuitive capabilities, development teams can quickly design sophisticated, appealing GUIs for consumer, industrial, and automotive applications.

NXP customers can get robust UIs for their multi-market devices, and take advantage of Storyboard’s collaborative process and short development time.

For over 10 years, software engineers have chosen to use Storyboard to build their GUI for NXP processors because of its consistent performance and reliability with both high- and low-power processors.


Storyboard is the NXP GUI builder of choice for embedded professionals

Whether you're building on an i.MX 8M, RT 1060, 7ULP or another NXP board, we wanted to help visualize your applications instantly. Seeing your hardware and GUI builder working simultaneously can be the first step towards kicking off your project. That's why we built a library of sample GUI applications in Storyboard.
