Enabling Adobe Flash on embedded user interfaces
29 April 2009, Computer/Embedded Technology

QNX Software Systems has announced the latest version of its high-performance middleware for embedded user interfaces, the QNX Aviage HMI Suite 2.0.

The suite offers embedded developers a complete framework for user interface development that combines the rich graphics of Adobe Flash Lite with the reliability and performance of the QNX Neutrino RTOS.

The suite allows embedded developers to implement entire user interfaces in Adobe Flash, thereby eliminating the lengthy process of coding HMIs with graphical APIs or cumbersome toolkits. As a result, developers can build dynamic, user-friendly HMIs for car infotainment units, industrial automation systems, medical devices and other embedded systems in significantly less time. The suite also serves as a key component of QNX CAR, an innovative program that helps automotive electronics suppliers accelerate product prototyping and reduce engineering costs.

The QNX Aviage HMI Suite 2.0 includes support for Adobe Flash Lite 3.1.7 and ActionScript 2.0. Other new capabilities include support for OpenVG hardware rendering on select graphics controllers and provision of extensions to accelerate common Flash transitions, including offscreen rendering, bit blitting and scroll list management.

The powerful collection of core ActionScript classes can load and define Flash modules on startup for the creation of more effective HMIs. The library also provides an efficient interface between the ActionScript Flash HMI and underlying native code, allowing the HMI to support realtime requirements.

An OpenKode-compliant composition manager now provided with the Neutrino RTOS allows developers to merge the output of multiple windows and processes on a single display, even with graphics controllers that do not support layering.

The solution allows Adobe Flash applications to share the screen with other 2D or 3D graphics applications, including web browsers and 3D applications based on the OpenGL ES API. The suite also runs on the QNX Photon microGUI windowing system, providing a customisable foundation for embedded HMIs that require a full-featured windowing environment.

The QNX Aviage HMI Suite 2.0 runs on a range of embedded platforms including ARM11, SH-4, x86 and Power architectures.
