LinuxLink for Rich MUI cuts dev time


LinuxLink for Rich Multimedia User Interfaces (Rich MUI).from Timesys Corporation is a new solution that allows developers to easily build multi-media UI-based devices and reduces platform and application development startup time from months to days.

The LinuxLink Rich MUI is designed to significantly shorten the time spent configuring and compiling distributions by providing a drag-and-drop, WYSIWYG tool for designing the GUI and cross-building the code to run on the target, as well as offering a library of well-documented, working demos utilizing OpenGL ES, GStreamer, and many Qt Widget and API calls to save weeks of trial and error. Rich MUI gathers, integrates, and tests all the necessary drivers, codecs and API libraries and reconciles version compatibility. A platform developer can select from one of the Rich MUI templates and all the components are already cross-built and linked. LinuxLink generates a bootable platform and complete toolchain.

LinuxLink Rich MUI includes all the software components and tools required to build 2D, 3D, audio- and video-accelerated systems. The offering includes 2D/3D Graphics software development kits (SDKs), Qt framework, drivers for HW accelerated components and GStreamer plugins for audio and video. In addition, the new solution includes Timesys TimeStorm — an Eclipse-based IDE that includes Timesys plug-ins for debug and deployment and Qt Designer plug-ins for WYSIWYG GUI design. Unmetered, expert Linux support from Timesys is included in every subscription of LinuxLink Rich MUI solution to further reduce development time and risk.

“The Rich MUI version of LinuxLink continues our focus on providing easy to use tools for embedded Linux developers,” said Atul Bansal, CEO of Timesys. “Rich user interfaces are fast becoming pervasive and necessary to maintain differentiation. Manufacturers continue to experience time-to-market and cost pressures while requiring increasingly sophisticated features be added to their devices. Timesys helps cut down the time, risk and cost involved in building these new devices.”

The LinuxLink Rich MUI edition is available now.
