New version of graphical user interface development tool speeds simple-to-use creation with powerful features
TORONTO, CANADA, November 30, 2018 -- Think Silicon, a leader in developing ultra-low power graphics IP technology, announced the first free version of NEMA®|GUI-Builder to speed the creation of high-quality GUIs for Embedded, Internet of Things (IoT) and Wearable devices.
Enabling rapid high-end GUI development on low resource hardware in a fraction of time, programmers for any small-display embedded, IoT or wearable device can use the free tool to create smooth and seamless graphics and animation experiences tailored for fast, responsive (touch) screen applications. NEMA®|GUI-Builder comes with the Think Silicon software API NEMA®|GFX and its highly efficient compression technology NEMA®|TSC™, created for use also on SoC platforms (MCU/MPU) with non-Think Silicon GPUs.
For extra value and even more efficiency, NEMA®|GUI-Builder is paired with the NEMA®|GPU and Display Controller product line. Programmers can achieve additional results including 3D rendering matched with unparalleled battery life performance.
“With the updated version of our free software tool, Think Silicon has the ease of use, speed and support for the programmer in mind. Designed for both amateur and professional developers, these essential tools help to simply design high quality, seamless and interactive graphical user interfaces within minutes for embedded, IoT and wearable devices,” said Ulli Mueller, Vice President, Marketing & Business Development of Think Silicon.
NEMA®|GUI-Builder offers programmers and designers the ability to significantly reduce the time of the GUI development by simply enabling drag-n-drop common control and input elements (e.g. buttons, icons, sliders, containers etc.) on the GUI surface benefited by a large set of library Widgets. NEMA®|GUI-Builder automatically produces power and performance optimized C code, with a small memory footprint by utilizing the 3D features of the NEMA®|GPU-Series and their powerful abilities. New features of NEMA®|GUI-Builder include bilinear filtering, simulation window, C code generation, multiple image and color formats, antialiased fonts, and more.
Designers can continue to use their favorite design tools such as Adobe Photoshop by exporting the created files to PNG or SVG file-formats and importing them into NEMA®|GUI-Builder.
Additional features for professional developers are available upon request. Supported platforms include Linux/X11, Microsoft Windows (available soon) and macOS (available soon).
