Altia Code Generation Target Release: Cypress Traveo S6J32DA

June 29th, 2016 by Cheryl Falk

Altia announces code generation support for Cypress Traveo S6J32DA, formerly known as the Spansion Amethyst. Two versions of this code generation target are available. The first, which supports 4-bit grayscale only, is a super optimized software-rendered pipeline for the Cypress S6J32DA. By focusing on grayscale for this product, DeepScreen gets nuanced designs down to incredibly small memory sizes. This target utilizes the OSEK AUTOSAR real-time operating system, a mature automotive standard which offers configurable and scalable architecture. The second version of Altia’s code generation target leverages the IRIS 1.0 graphics pipeline for driving rich color graphic displays for all type of applications.

Automotive clusters: Where safety meets innovation

June 21st, 2016 by Cheryl Falk

Automotive clusters: Where safety meets innovation | Altia HMI Development SoftwareCheck out our new article on Embedded Computing Design.

“The instrument cluster is experiencing a radical reinvention.

Screens are taking over the cluster because the cost of both the screens and the silicon to drive displays is going down. In some cases, the cluster is a combination of physical gauges and a screen; in others, all cluster information is presented on a large thin-film transistor (TFT) displays. In either implementation, the cluster is prime, driver-critical real estate, making its deployment no typical human-machine interface (HMI) challenge. All features and functionality must be easy to understand. Additionally, the entire embedded cluster system must be extremely -focused, performant, and fault tolerant.”

Altia CEO talks HMIs for Off-Highway Vehicles

February 23rd, 2016 by Cheryl Falk

In the February issue of SAE Off-Highway Engineering, Terry Costlow takes on the topic of HMIs for off-highway vehicles in his article, “Looking for a better image: Display advances are helping to reduce operator fatigue.

Costlow writes, “HMIs are the link to the functions that actually do the work, so they play a central role as equipment suppliers race to help operators do more work in less time.”
