Altia DeepScreen code generation enables medical, consumer, and industrial embedded graphical interfaces for STM32
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – March 25, 2022 – Altia announces the extension of code generation support for the STM32 product family to include STM32H7 and STM32MP1. This combination of production-proven Graphical User Interface (GUI) development software and cost-effective hardware is especially suited for integrated displays for medical, consumer, and industrial devices.
Altia has a successful history of partnering with STMicroelectronics on GUI development support for their products. Beyond Altia DeepScreen support for STM32L4, STM32F4, STM32F7 and Accordo5, Altia is proud to present its code generation solutions for STM32H7 and STM32MP1.
“Designing graphical user interfaces with Altia allows product manufacturers to design a GUI once, then deploy that same GUI over and over again, across different brands and product families. This scalability saves development time and cost as they leverage one GUI model for multiple programs,” said Jeff Urkevich, director of product marketing at Altia. “With our code generation support for the STM32H7 and STM32MP1, Altia demonstrates how our code generators leverage each board’s unique features to deliver optimal performance and an enjoyable user experience on hardware at a variety of price points. “
“The STM32H7 and STM32MP1 graphics card portfolio offers users a wide range of platform architecture options to run smooth, high-end graphical user interfaces. With the wide range of display interface options, customers can select commonly used screens. But hardware is only one key element to achieve the desired GUI needs. Developers need to realize the marketing and design requirements and bring the display to life, which is where a solution like Altia becomes relevant. We were very impressed with the Altia demos running on STM32H7 and STM32MP1, which use ST’s various on-board hardware accelerations,” said Søren Myllerup Mikkelsen, Business Development Engineer for Graphics at STMicroelectronics.
With a pixel-to-production workflow, companies bring their integrated displays to market quickly and efficiently with Altia software. Altia’s GUI editor, Altia Design, gives product developers the ability to create intuitive and visually pleasing GUIs with graphics from third-party tools such as Adobe® Photoshop®, Sketch, Blender, Autodesk® Maya® and others without hand-coding graphics. No manual coding is required. With Altia Design, developers create a complete GUI model that can be tested and improved with rapid iterations to achieve the best possible user experience. Once complete, developers generate production-ready C source code for this same GUI model with Altia DeepScreen. Altia’s DeepScreen code generators are designed to take advantage of the unique features of each hardware target and achieve optimized code with the smallest memory footprint and best performance.
Altia is a software company that provides graphical user interface design and development tools that can be used from concept to final product code. Our GUI editor, Altia Design, gives development teams the ability to implement a model-based development process for clear communication and accelerated UI development. Our code generator, Altia DeepScreen, supports a wide range of low to high power processors from various industry leading silicon vendors. Altia generates pure C source code optimized to take full advantage of hardware resources. Graphical code generated by Altia drives millions of displays worldwide, from automotive instrument clusters, HUDs and radios to thermostats, washing machines and healthcare monitors. Our mission is to bring the best automotive, medical and consumer interfaces to production in the shortest possible time on the lowest cost hardware.
