On February 8-9, 2011, Ronald Zehmeister (from SalesParkOne) and I were invited to attend a LINUX Symposium, hosted by Toshiba Electronics Europe at their offices in Düsseldorf. The purpose of the event was to provide embedded systems developers with in-depth information on designing and implementing LINUX-based systems.
Toshiba invited us to showcase our HMI engineering tools at a small exhibition. It was great to talk with the embedded developers who visited us at the event. Many want to create something more exciting than a basic information display for their new products. They want:
- Compelling, colorful custom design.
- Exciting animations.
- Great performance on affordable hardware.
- A streamlined development process.
This is right up our alley.
As part of the event, we were invited to give a brief presentation about our products. We got a chance to demo our new Toshiba TMPA900 target. Our demo showed the advantages of using hardware acceleration over using the LINUX frame buffer alone. If you would like to check out our hardware accelerated demo or the videos comparing the two versions, send us an e-mail with your contact information and we’ll send you the link.
