Tailor-made for highly-responsive industrial experiences

Storyboard consists of tools and capabilities for UI designers and embedded software developers that enable a smooth, continual workflow while they design and validate simultaneously. Using a WYSIWYG environment, the team gets a real-time display of the final product, and visual validation of how it behaves that can be tweaked and optimized in real-time resulting in high performing applications, tailor-made for the embedded device.

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.
