Khronos Technology Sessions

The Qt Company: Performance Driven GUI Development on Low-Cost Hardware

Date and Location: Monday 3:15 PM 1 hour 205 - Level 2
Presenter: Louai Ai-Khanji: The Qt Company

Learn how Qt for Device Creation may be used to create advanced user interfaces in a few simple steps. Qt is a cross-platform C++ framework that offers tools to create modern and fluid user experiences. The Qt framework may utilize the OpenGL ES capable i.MX6 or perform simplified rendering for the new i.MX7. We will take a look at Qt and use Qt for Device Creation to develop a GUI application optimized for projects requiring low power and real-time tasks which are suitable for wide-range of industrial applications, while keeping advanced security features to be used in IoT applications—all with confidence and convenience. Attendees will discover how easily it is to enable a low power device with performant GUI effects. This evolution requires virtually no changes to the software or hardware -- made possible by the Qt Framework and standardized pin-compatible computer modules from Toradex.

NXP Semiconductors: i.MX 8 and the Vulkan API - The Future of High Performance Graphics Implementations

Date and Location: Thursday 10:00 AM 1 hour Lone Star Ballroom E - Level 3
Presenter: Gabe Dagani, Senior Graphics Engineer / SOC Architect: NXP Semiconductors
Co-presenter: Norbert Nopper, FAE Real-Time Rendering: NXP Semiconductors

Get a deep dive into the brand new Vulkan API from Khronos. Learn how the programming paradigms have changed from OpenGL ES, how to use Vulkan API and its enormous performance advantages, and how to unlock the full potential of i.MX 8 series GPUs.

NXP Semiconductors: i.MX 8 Graphics Architecture

Date and Location: Wednesday 4:45 PM 1 hour 206 Brazos - Level 2
Presenter: Rafal Malewski: NXP Semiconductors
Co-presenter: Gabe Dagani, Senior Graphics Engineer / SOC Architect: NXP Semiconductors

Gain a deep dive into the GPU and display controller architecture of the i.MX 8 applications processor family. Discover the advanced features, design choices, and the HMI solutions enabled by the i.MX 8 series. This class provides a basic introduction to i.MX 8 graphics and is a precursor to the more advanced i.MX 8 classes around augmented reality, eCockpit, graphics SDK and Vulkan classes.
