Elektrobit (EB) rolled out version five of their EB GUIDE tool chain for HMI development. EB GUIDE Studio is an interactive tool for the development of HMI designs for infotainment systems, navigation applications and classical or freely-programmable instrument cluster. EB GUIDE supports developers from the model to production-ready code, permitting the development and testing of graphical interfaces on the desktop and on the target system. EB GUIDE GTF 5.0 is available for evaluation on the Freescale i.MX51.
EB (Elektrobit) introduced EB Assist ADTF (Automotive Data and Time-Triggered Framework) modular development framework. EB Assist ADTF accelerates the software development process of driver assistance systems. EB Assist ADTF enables the synchronous collection of relevant sensor data and bus signals (LIN, CAN, FlexRay, MOST), and can replay them in real time. As a result, software functions can be evaluated and validated in near-real time. EB Assist ADTF can display results both in the vehicle and in the laboratory.
EB (Elektrobit) introduced a new version of the EB tresos Busmirror cluster emulation tool. The latest version of EB tresos Busmirror extends the capability of performing real time cluster emulation from FlexRay into CAN networks as well. The cluster emulation is complemented by the new EB 2100 hardware interface. An open programming interface allows custom-developed software modules to be integrated into the EB tresos Busmirror or the EB 2100.
EB (Elektrobit) announced a new XAML (Extensible Application Markup Language) plug-in to connect the EB GUIDE Studio HMI development tool to Microsoft Expression Blend. As a result, complex HMIs developed with Expression Blend and the description language XAML can now be easily specified and administered. The XAML plug-in for EB GUIDE Studio will be available from EB in the first quarter of 2010.
