Webinar: How to optimize your embedded UI for mass production

By Jason Clarke on Apr 9, 2019 8:15:00 AM

In the graphics world, much attention is always paid to the biggest and fastest Microprocessor (MPU) and Graphics Processor (GPU), but this is not always where the innovation is happening. Since Crank Storyboard is providing UI solutions on both Microcontrollers (MCU) and MPUs we have been seeing some of the fastest movement and excitement is on the new class of ARM M7 MCUs. NXP is one of the leaders in this area with their i.MX RT line of M7 MCUs that they are calling the “Crossover Processor”.
