Fujitsu CGI Studio, a set of hybrid 2D and 3D human machine interface
(HMI) development tools, is now integrated with eSOLís eT-Kernel
real-time OS. The combination of CGI Studio and eT-Kernel/POSIX enables
eT-Kernel users to implement proven 2D and 3D GUIs on their devices.
eSOL will demonstrate FEATís CGI Studio on eT-Kernel at its booth, West
5-14, at the 16th Embedded Systems Expo, May 8-10 in Tokyo, Japan.
Studio offers a rich set of 2D/3D graphical development tools for
embedded systems, including tools for 2D / 3D composition and authoring,
performance measuring and improving, state machine integration and
testing, functional safety according to ASIL norms, and a fully-fledged
2D / 3D rendering engine. It is designed to boost system performance
even under hardware resource and cost constraints. CGI Studio supports
OpenGLR ES2.0, which allows highly sophisticated graphical effect
including reflections, shadows, warping, morphing, etc. However, it is
easy to use, even for entry-level GUI - developers. CGI Studio has been
used in many clusters and IVI systems worldwide, primarily in EU markets
for premium OEMs.
The eT-Kernel real-time OS is used worldwide
in a variety of embedded systems, including automotive, industrial,
aerospace, and consumer devices. The eT-Kernel consists of three
scalable profiles to choose from depending on system size and purpose,
including eT-Kernel/POSIX with high Linux compatibility.
This eT-Kernel scalability accelerates the sharing of software assets
on each eT-Kernel profile. It also ensures efficient software
development of a related series or next-generation products.
eT-Kernel comes with development tools, middleware components, and
professional services in eSOLís integrated eT-Kernel Platform. The
eT-Kernel Platform offers developers a choice of GUI middleware
components including the Qt? application
and UI framework. Now CGI Studioís support has expanded the choice for
eT-Kernel users and offers them even more graphical features. CGI Studio
and the eT-Kernel Platform can be used with Fujitsu Semiconductorís
ARM-based Emerald series graphic controllers (MB86R1x).
Join our online Radio Show on Friday 11th July starting at 2:00pm Eastern, when EETimes editor of all things fun and interesting, Max Maxfield, and embedded systems expert, Jack Ganssle, will debate as to just what is, and is not, and embedded system.
