The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of advanced graphical user interface technology, announces a new comprehensive visual development software bundle for the Embedded community, offering an “out of the box” solution for the rapid development and deployment of visual interfaces utilized in standard and safety critical embedded systems. Industry leaders ALT Software and Green Hills Software, have joined with DiSTI to form this new Visual Interface Bundle for Embedded systems (VIBEs), with proven software tools that deliver immediate, cost-effective results.
VIBE includes DiSTI’s industry leading next generation 3D Human Machine Interface (HMI) design tools, ALT’s advanced 2D and 3D graphics device drivers for embedded systems, and Green Hills’ safety and security certifications for embedded software. DiSTI’s latest version of GL Studio Embedded will supply developers with the ability to generate code through a consistent and reliable method, eliminating the need for hand coding. Already flying in multiple aircrafts, ALT’s embedded OpenGL graphics drivers are certifiable to DO-178B and EUROCAE ED-12B Design Assurance Level A. Green Hills Software contributes the MULTI IDE development tool with sophisticated capabilities that will allow the developer to quickly generate, debug and optimize code. Certified in a range of industries, Green Hills’ INTEGRITY Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) will set the standard for the safety, security, and reliability of embedded systems.
“The new VIBE bundle provides the key elements required to develop DO-178B certifiable Commercial off The Shelf graphics solutions for aerospace applications,” said Dan Joncas, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing at ALT Software. “Each element has been certified in numerous aircraft and proven to be reliable high performance solutions for avionics manufacturers. Since the individual components are pre-integrated by ALT, Green Hills, and DiSTI, this is a true ‘out of the box’ solution that shortens development time and puts it in the market for use by manufacturers of high reliability systems.”
VIBE will be officially unveiled at the Europe Avionics show in Munich, Germany on March 16 and 17. Avionics Europe is the platform for discussing new commercial and defense aerospace electronics as market solutions. After the Avionics Show, VIBE will be immediately available for embedded and safety critical projects.
