Altia, Inc. announces that its HMI development tools, Altia Design® and Altia DeepScreen® have been selected for use in its “Energy Aware” home appliance platform. Altia HMI software provides embedded systems developers with the capability to create complete custom graphical user interfaces and graphics code without programming graphics. These working interface prototypes are quickly deployable to an Altera Corporation Cyclone® series FPGA and provides power line networking capability to home-appliance applications with LONWORKS® Power Line transceiver board from Echelon Corporation. Altia DeepScreen supports OpenGL ES. The Altia OpenGL ES DeepScreen target is OS independent and may be ported to any environment with or without an OS. This target is suitable for both high and low end systems that have OpenGL. The OpenGL ES target is very lightweight and takes advantage of hardware acceleration wherever possible (for example, when rotating or scaling images). It all adds up to exceptional embedded target performance. Together, Altia and OpenGL ES offer a package that gets cutting-edge, animated, custom GUIs on the lowest cost hardware in the shortest time.
