PROFESSIONAL PLATFORM GRAPHICS

Included in the Synergy Software Package, GUIXTM 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 GUI code that can be used in the target application.

GUIX is fully integrated with 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
GUIX APPLICATION PROJECTS
Getting Started with GUIX

GUIX has all the features you would expect from a high-end graphics package – an extensive set of widgets, window management, skins and themes, screen transitions, alpha blending…  But such a rich feature set can be a little intimidating at first.  To learn about GUIX one step at a time, check out the introductory GUIX Application Projects.

Next Steps with GUIX

Once you are familiar with GUIX capabilities, you will want to combine them to suit your own specific application.  See how the features of GUIX can be combined to create intuitive yet highly functional user interfaces.
