Webinar: How to design rich UIs on resource-constrained platforms (feat. NXP i.MX RT1060)

By Alecia O'Brien on May 8, 2019 9:05:00 AM

NXP and Crank Software are teaming up again for the second webinar in our 2-part series on embedded UI development for the industry's first crossover processor series - the i.MX RT Series.

How to build your next supercharged embedded UI on the i.MX RT1060 (live demo)

  • Thursday, May 23
  • 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT
  • Hosted by NXP and Crank Software
  • Register here

Crank's upcoming release (ssssh!!) features Storyboard Lite, which has been designed specifically to support the convergence of low-power applications processors and high-performance microcontrollers, such as the RT Series. A memory footprint reduced version of Storyboard, Storyboard Lite enables the creation of highly responsive GUIs on resource-constrained (memory and flash limited) embedded target hardware platforms.

If you're looking to embrace growing consumer demand for enhanced user experience in smart, yet secure high-performance products, and support next generation IoT applications, then this webinar demonstration should definitely be on your calendar!

Adding 3D to UIs: Importing FBX models into Storyboard

By Jennie on Oct 6, 2016 2:40:03 PM

3D elements add movement, dimension, and life to embedded applications. Aesthetics aside, they also enhance user experience and improve findability of information with a visual perspective that 2D graphics lack. As processors and GPUs evolve, embedded applications are becoming richer and 3D content more prevalent.

Mississippi State University chooses Storyboard to deliver award-winning in-car HMI

By Jennie on Nov 26, 2014 11:21:19 AM

When we learned that Mississippi State University (MSU) was evaluating Storyboard Suite to design and develop a fully integrated center stack in the EcoCAR 2 competition, we were thrilled to support them in such an exciting and innovative project. The EcoCAR series is a Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition that provides university students hands-on experience with completely overhauling a vehicle to reduce its environmental impact, while retaining or enhancing its functionality and performance. As part of the challenge, the rising stars behind tomorrow's technologically savvy vehicles were also tasked with developing a new media-rich center stack unit. In-car Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) are becoming increasing common and evolving rapidly, both from a technology and design standpoint. The best HMIs enhance, not disrupt, driver experience and are intuitive and attractive from a design standpoint. It was exciting for Crank to see MSU tackle this challenge with enthusiasm and a keen design eye, and to be part of the future of in-car HMI design.
