Altia announces code generation support for its optimized software-rendered pipeline for Renesas R-Car E2. This target is a compelling option for those developing radio or limited e-cockpit systems. Additionally, those who are planning open source into their projects will find that the target runs out-of-the-box on Yocto Linux.
Connected conversations start here.
As of today, we have a new and improved Altia Support — with an updated look and feel and an easier way to submit and view support tickets.
All of the links to the previous Altia Support site (articles, tickets, etc.) will route and forward to this newer version of the site, but there is one change you might want to know about.
To view all your requests/tickets, please now do so by clicking the drop-down menu in the top-right of the page that shows your name, and then choose “My Activities” from the menu items.
NXP is hosting NXP FTF Connects in Detroit on Wednesday and Thursday of this week, October 5-6! Altia will be there!
What is NXP FTF Connects? This is the event formally known as “Designing with Freescale (DwF)”. It’s a free, two day technical training that offers in-depth courses and hands-on training to help attendees design, develop and deploy on the latest technologies and solutions from NXP — and will include a Technology Lab, where attendees will get to experience real-world implementations of the most cutting edge products and solutions from NXP and their ecosystem partners.
Altia, Incorporated, an industry standard for graphical user interface development software and services, announces today the launch of its newly redesigned website, www.altia.com. The new website offers beautiful, responsive design and enhanced functionality and content, providing visitors a richer experience for exploring Altia’s software offerings, GUI demos and more.
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.
Check 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 safety-focused, performant, and fault tolerant.”
Altia Opens New Hub in Germany to Meet Rising Demand for HMI Engineering Software and Services
Altia, Inc. is pleased to announce the grand opening of a new office for Altia Europe GmbH in Frankfurt / Neu-Isenburg, Germany.
Altia Europe GmbH provides human-machine interface (HMI) development software and engineering services for embedded displays and touch screens. Its clients include automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers as well as manufacturers of medical, consumer and industrial devices. The team at Altia Europe GmbH focuses its support efforts on the country-specific needs of companies in Europe.
Our engineering team has delivered another new target!
Altia DeepScreen now offers code generation support for Renesas RH850/D1L1. This Renesas processor is perfect for instrument clusters, HUDs and other in-vehicle displays. Our DeepScreen target makes the most of this chip’s resources to deliver exciting HMI features for cost-conscious automotive production programs, including support for global fonts like Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew, Japanese, Korean and others.
Altia announces code generation support for its optimized software-rendered pipeline for Renesas RH850/D1L1. This target utilizes the OSEK real-time operating system, a mature automotive standard which offers configurable and scalable architecture.
The Renesas RH850/D1x series was designed to address growing integrated automotive and ground vehicle dashboard markets – and is suited for car instrument clusters, head-up displays (HUDs), and other display applications. The D1L1 features an RH850 CPU core running at 120 MHz – providing 256 KB of RAM and 2 MB of Flash.
Altia’s VP of Marketing, Jason Williamson, shared his recommendations for developing HMIs for the mass market in a recent article for RTC Magazine.
So what’s the biggest concern when developing an HMI for mass market?
