Developing rich GUI experiences for Boundary Devices Nitrogen platforms

Boundary Devices

Boundary Devices has an array of Single Board Computers (SBC) that leverage NXP i.MX applications processors for developing rich, high-performance embedded products.

Storyboard Suite GUI demo images for Boundary Devices Nitrogen Single Board Computers

We are continually working with popular platforms to test and showcase the scalability of Storyboard Suite for GUI design and development. We recently added a demo image for the Nitrogen6_MAX, which features the i.MX 6 Quad family of applications processors. This demo includes applications that span the automotive, home automation, and consumer embedded markets.

Designed and developed in Storyboard Suite, these application GUIs are built with a modern design aesthetic with a focus on usability, scalability, and performance. As always, our demo images are easy to download and install to your target advice. Download it and try it out!

Developing brilliant embedded UIs for the i.MX RT1050

Storyboard on the NXP i.MX RT

Late last year, NXP announced the i.MX RT Series, a crossover processor that is optimized for low power and high performance. Built for efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and lower power usage, the i.MX RT Series doesn’t compromise on what’s important to end users; high-performance, usability, advanced multimedia, and impressive graphics. This series fills a gap and hits a sweet spot that offers the best of both the MCU and application processor worlds to provide an excellent platform option for medical, IoT, building/home automation, and smart appliance applications.

Helpful resources to get you started with embedded GUI development for the RT1050

Check out the following resources to understand more about building applications for NXP RT1050 platforms.

Demo images: We’ve been building up our inventory of NXP demo images to make it fast and simple for you to see applications on your i.MX RT1050 platforms with both uClinux and FreeRTOS variants. Download them and try them out!

On-demand webinar: In addition to demo images, we also have an on-demand i.MX1050 webinar, “Delivering performance, functionality, and stunning design to embedded products” available that we hosted with NXP.

EmCraft demo: Our friends at EmCraft Systems created a short demo built with Storyboard Suite and instructions for quickly installing it to an NXP i.MX RT1050 EVK board.

Creating innovative user experiences for VxWorks platforms

Crank Software Storyboard Suite support for Wind River VxWorks

Powering billions of intelligent products, Wind River VxWorks has long been a trusted real-time operating system (RTOS) for deploying embedded products and systems. With wide processor support, broad connectivity, and proven real-time performance and reliability, we are excited that VxWorks is a supported platform for bringing world-class Storyboard Suite applications to market.

At Embedded World 2018, we showcased an innovative programmable full-color dashboard display, built by Bosch Motorsport and running on VxWorks. The DDU 10 user interface was developed using Storyboard Suite and has configurable pages for customizing motorsport applications. Check out the video from Embedded World to see it in action.

 

Developing embedded applications for uClinux platforms

Storyboard targets a variety of operating systems for embedded UI development across a range of microcontrollers and microprocessors. For many developers, Linux is the OS of choice for development for MPU targets. What about for MCUs? We see a lot of RTOS options, but where does Linux fit in the MCU world? One option is uClinux.

As a variation of the Linux kernel, uClinux targets microcontrollers and provides a compelling OS alternative to developers building applications for MCU platforms who are accustomed to developing for Linux-based MPU targets. uClinux benefits from the extensive support for components and communication found in Linux and is a robust and versatile OS for a range of embedded products.

Storyboard Suite supports uClinux as a target OS and is showcased in our latest demo image for the NXP RT1050.

Download i.MX RT1050 demo image

EmCraft, one of the biggest boosters for uClinux on MCUs, offers a variety of Cortex-M-based modules with uClinux BSPs, including the STM32F7 System-On-Module which can be seen in this application that EmCraft developed in Storyboard Suite.
