See Storyboard User Interface Demos on your Hardware

Storyboard Suite User Interface Demo Images

When working with any embedded platform it’s helpful to be able to quickly validate its capabilities and performance before investing the time and resources to create and deploy applications. Pre-built and packaged demos make it easy to test drive hardware with applications designed to its specifications.

Over the past several months we’ve been building a demo image library of application user interfaces created in Storyboard for a variety of platforms and hardware. Each demo image is built for a specific target with its unique capabilities, constraints, performance, and screen form factor in mind. The Storyboard user interface demos are packaged with simple instructions for getting the applications up and running on your target quickly.

Browse our library of Storyboard demos for platforms from NXP, STMicroelectronics, Atmel, and more. We will be adding new demos in the coming months, so check back often.

Experience Storyboard GUI Demos at NXP FTF Technology Forum

Storyboard GUIs at NXP FTF Technology Forum

Crank Software will be well-represented at NXP FTF Technology Forum 2016 next week in Austin, Texas, May 16-19. We will be running a hands-on lab again this year, as well as showcasing demo GUIs and Storyboard Suite features and capabilities at the exhibition. If you are going to the show, here’s what you can expect to see.

Exhibition Hall – GUI Design Demos

Visit the Crank Software booths (151 & 154) to check out a wide range of application GUIs designed and developed with Storyboard Suite. We will also be demoing the latest enhancements and features in Storyboard Suite 4.2.

You’ll find innovative Storyboard Suite demos in a number of partner booths at the exhibition as well, including:

Crank Software & NXP booths will be showing Storyboard Suite GUI demos that span automotive, white goods, and lifestyle applications on a variety of NXP iMX family processors. Not to be missed is the impressive Movie Theatre Kiosk, an interactive demo built with Storyboard Suite, running on the high-performance NXP i.MX 6QuadPlus on Linux with OpenGL ES rendering.

Hands-on Learning Opportunity – Storyboard Suite Lab Session

If you’d rather learn by doing rather than watching, we will be teaching a hands-on lab again this year, so make sure you rearrange your busy schedule at the show to attend our session. You’ll get your hands dirty in the 2 hour classroom session, so bring your appetite for learning and try your best to stump the Crank instructor.

Hands-on Lab – The Evolution of Embedded GUI Design: From Photoshop to Crank Storyboard Suite to i.MX Series Hardware in Minutes (FTF-DES-N2034)

When: Tuesday, 4:45 PM
Where: Griffin Hall 5 – Level 2
What: In this session, users will: import design artwork directly into Storyboard Suite; add interactive functionality and rich animations; test in the simulator to quickly refine and update the design; and deploy a functioning application prototype directly to an i.MX platform. After completing this workshop, users will be able to import artwork directly from Photoshop into Storyboard Suite, develop a rich application GUI, and deploy to hardware.

We will be tweeting from the show, so be sure to follow @cranksoftware for updates.
The NXP FTF hastag this year is #NXPFTF.

HMI Design with Storyboard Suite for Renesas RZ/G Series MPUs

Storyboard Suite HMI on the Renesas RZ/G1MWe create a lot of demo applications to show the scalability of embedded GUIs designed and developed with Storyboard Suite.

In previous posts, we’ve shared Storyboard HMI demos on Renesas RZ family processors, such as the RZ/A1. Today’s demo showcases Storyboard on an RZ/G1M.

The Renesas RZ/G series of processors features high performance for rich animations and enhanced UIs that include 3D graphics and HD video. This digital instrument cluster demo built in Storyboard Suite takes advantage of these advanced UI capabilities.

Crank Software at Embedded World 2016 – GUI Demos from the Booth

Hello from Nuremberg, Germany!

Crank Software Embedded World

Some of the Crank Software team getting ready for day 1. What a friendly looking bunch!

Day 1 at Embedded World 2016 brought a lot of attendees to the Crank Software booth to check out some of the demos below and to chat with us about their projects. I think that a common theme that came up in conversations today was how scalable Storyboard Suite is, and the breadth of processors and operating systems that we support.

As proof of this wide range, check out the photos and video of demos from our booth (Hall 4/4-547).
