Rich, Animated UI Design for Embedded Devices
Crank™ Storyboard™ Suite enables UI designer and
embedded developers to quickly create rich user interfaces for embedded devices with a solution that streamlines the entire UI lifecycle from design to simulation to optimization for the resource-constrained target device.
Crank Storyboard Suite benefits:
- Faster time-to-market
- One solution to prototype, design and deploy and across multiple products and product lines
- Support for QNX, Windows CE/WEC7 and Embedded Linux
- Leverages the capabilities of the underlying system
Crank Storyboard Suite enables UI Designers and Embedded Engineers to easily collaborate, prototype, develop and release rich animated user interfaces for embedded devices. Using Storyboard, UI Designers, even those with little or no programming experience, can realize their UI designs through import from Adobe® Photoshop® and do this in parallel with, yet independently from, the engineers who are working on the coding. Storyboard simplifies the design process and saves valuable time.
Crank Storyboard Suite consists of both Storyboard Designer and the Storyboard Embedded Engine:
- Storyboard Designer: Enables UI designers to leverage their core expertise to easily prototype the look and feel of a UI, run simulations of the interface to validate the designs, and then move the prototype directly to the embedded device for deployment
- Storyboard Embedded Engine: The runtime component of the suite that drives the content developed in Designer on embedded devices
