Wind River rolled out Tilcon Graphics Suite 5.8 for the development and deployment of rich graphical user interfaces for embedded devices. The latest version supports Open Graphics Library (OpenGL) 3D that enables highly customizable and rapid development of high-end GUIs to create improved end-user experiences across a variety of hardware platforms and operating systems, particularly in the aerospace and defense, industrial, and medical market segments.
Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite helps device and systems manufacturers develop end-user interface applications, including patient monitoring devices, clinical surgery system interfaces, railway operator control panels and retail terminal interfaces. The tool enables developers to create, maintain, and rebrand user interfaces at a fraction of the time and cost of traditional graphics software, to get to market faster.
Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite is fully integrated with the latest versions of VxWorks and Wind River Linux as well as Windows CE, Windows XP, Fedora, Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Ubuntu. Hardware support has also been broadened to now include Freescale i.MX31, Intel Atom processors and Texas Instruments OMAP platforms.
Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite includes Wind River Tilcon Interface Development Tool, which utilizes drag-and-drop simplicity to quickly create a complete, functional and user-friendly interface. At the heart of the Tilcon technology is Wind River Tilcon GUI Engine, which handles low-level graphics code, fonts, text, images and colors. Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite enables developers to leverage the OpenGL’s open, vendor-neutral, multi-platform graphics standard across desktop and workstation platforms. Wind River also provides developer tutorials for Wind River Tilcon Graphics Suite.
