Altia extends DeepScreen code generation support to Renesas RZ/G2L
COLORADO SPRINGS, CO – Altia today announced that DeepScreen code generation support is now available for Renesas RZ/G2L microprocessor units (MPUs). For companies developing products such as home security devices, point-of-sale (POS) terminals, home appliances and medical devices using the Renesas RZ/G2L, Altia offers a powerful solution to quickly and efficiently create beautiful branded built-in screens.
The MPU RZ/G2L includes a Cortex®-A55 processor (1.2 GHz), a 16-bit DDR3L/DDR4 interface, a 3D graphics engine with Arm Mali-G31 and a video codec (H.264). This MPU also has many interfaces such as camera input, display output, USB 2.0 and Gigabit Ethernet, making it ideal for applications such as entry-level Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) and integrated devices with video capabilities.
Altia’s GUI software includes an advanced built-in GUI editor and GUI code generator to create high-impact GUIs for production hardware like the Renesas RZ/G2L. The Altia suite of tools allows designers to leverage artwork from all popular 2D and 3D graphics tools. Developers can take advantage of these graphics to create a complete GUI template. Using Altia’s state-of-the-art workflow, developers can quickly and easily iterate these models to test with users and fine-tune the GUI user experience, providing a polished GUI model for the code generation.
Altia DeepScreen then generates production-ready C source code suitable for the Renesas RZ/G2L board, leveraging the full range of on-chip features to deliver the best performance and smallest memory footprint. Altia’s scalable GUI software solution also supports a variety of low to high power Renesas products for this market segment beyond RZ/G2L, including Synergy S5/S7, RX600, SH7268/9 and RZ/A.
“Renesas is committed to meeting the needs of its industrial and appliance customers with innovative silicon technology and complete solutions – and we are doing just that with the RZ/G2L MPU,” said TJ Mueller, Product Marketing and Business Development at Renesas. ElectronicsAmerica. “Altia provides a finely tuned solution for developing best-in-class user interfaces on the RZ/G2L, such as advanced 3D interfaces to enable powerful display and video capabilities for systems that require HMI and graphical interaction transparent.”
“We are excited to work with Renesas to extend GUI code generation support to Renesas RZ/G2L. For companies deploying embedded graphical interfaces for this Renesas MPU, Altia enables their designers to create custom graphics with a comprehensive toolset and then deploy easily certified, high performing pure C code,” says Jeffrey Urkevich, director of product marketing at Altia.
