Microcontrollers (MCUs) are ubiquitous in electronic appliances in consumer electronics, industrial automation, healthcare and the automotive industry, but the user experience of the user interfaces has been lagging behind. Users and operators expect smartphone-like user experiences with every screen they interact –a huge challenge for manufacturers to achieve. The desire to maintain existing supply chains and keeping the bill of materials low requires manufacturers to both improve the performance of their user interfaces, user interface performance while overcoming performance bottlenecks. Now, the most popular C++ development framework, Qt, is expanding its offering for the MCU market, with a new and lightweight implementation which enables the creation of high-performance user interfaces for the most low-end hardware.
During this session, delegates will learn:
Which device displays are run by an MCU
Key considerations for graphics on MCUs
Implementing a smartphone-like User Interface
Memory footprint and performance indicators
