Stuttgart, Germany -February 10, 2010 – TES Electronic Solutions (TES), the global electronics design and manufacturing services company, today announced the availability of MAGiK, a media and graphics innovation kit. MAGiK is an open platform for rapid application and product development ideal for applications such as home automation, entertainment systems in transportation and industrial displays.
MAGiK leverages TES’s competence of integrating technologies in graphics, multimedia, electronic design services and manufacturing. The innovation kit is a combination of a flexible production ready system module based on a Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) OMAP3530 applications processor along with a generic I/O board, offering a host of multimedia connectivity and expansion to suite most embedded development requirements. The user interface, a key aspect in most products today is accelerated by the use of TES Guiliani HMI framework and tools. The Guiliani UI editor provides developers with a quick and easy way to create and deploy stunning visual effects using OpenGL® ES , and the framework is coupled with the powerful media framework OpenCORE™ to bring a host of media playback and recording features. MAGiK is offered today with a choice of Linux, Windows® Embedded CE 6.0 or Android.
Juergen Zeller, CEO TES Design Services & Technology stated, “MAGiK offers our customers a complete product solution and a development platform, which reduces risk in both hardware and software development. Our customers also benefit with our integrated manufacturing and electronics design services besides achieving the critical time to market. A true added value is bringing TES Guiliani HMI on OMAP35x to ease customer’s development of user interfaces in the non‐mobile market. Clearly TI's OMAP35x is a marketing leading solution in portable multimedia and graphics. With MAGiK OMAP platform, we are pleased to further extend our cooperation with TI which initially started with automotive graphics".
Michael Sharpless, TI Worldwide Sales Manager, Elite Design House Program, TI, said, “As an Elite Design House member, TES’ hardware and software design expertise is clearly highlighted on MAGiK through integrating multimedia and a user-friendly HMI framework for a variety of industrial and consumer applications.
