Professional Platform Graphics

Included in the Synergy Software Package, GUIX is an advanced, industrial grade GUI solution designed specifically for deeply embedded, real-time, and IoT applications. The full-featured WYSIWYG desktop design tool GUIX Studio allows developers to design their GUI on the desktop and generate GUIX embedded code that can be used in the target application.

GUIX is fully integrated with the ThreadX® RTOS and the rest of the Synergy Software Package for seamless graphics integration with your application.

See GUIX solutions in action by clicking one of the videos below. Then download the application project, complete with application note and the source code used to create the demos, so you can immediately leverage the power of GUIX and the SSP.

  • Be sure to verify bus bandwidth requirements for your application
  • External RAM may be required due to frame buffer size. For example, a 320x240 QVGA display with two frame buffers requires 307KB RAM, while an 800x480 WVGA display with two frame buffers requires 1.5MB RAM
