Wind River introduced Tilcon Graphics Suite 5.7, which is a development solution for building and deploying multi-platform, highly usable graphical user interfaces (GUI) for multifunctional embedded devices. The Tilcon Graphics Suite features tighter integration with VxWorks. Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite v5.7 enables manufacturers to more easily produce rich user interfaces for their devices and at a lower cost than traditional GUI software. This is the first version of the Tilcon Graphics Suite to offer standard support for Wind River Linux.
Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite 5.7 Components
Tilcon Interface Development Tool (IDT)
Tilcon IDT offers an innovative and agile host simulation approach to GUI design and development, allowing users to design, prototype, simulate and test an embedded GUI early in development without coding and before writing any product code.
Tilcon GUI Engine
A run-time platform that runs on the device’s operating system and integrates all device applications, hardware and software with the developed user interface, running applications and processes while displaying the results for the user. The GUI engine allows graphics changes to be made throughout the process without impacting the underlying application code, reducing time-to-market.
