Collaboration provides emWin embedded system graphics library free of charge

15-03-2024 | Segger | Industrial

SEGGER and GigaDevice have partnered to provide emWin GUI software free of charge. With GD32, the largest Arm-based MCU product family in China, GigaDevice was the first to launch MCUs containing Cortex-M3, -M4, -M23, -M33, and -M7 cores in China. With this, it achieves comprehensive coverage of mainstream microcontroller applications, from low energy to ultra-high performance, covering consumer to automotive grade while adopting the latest architectures, keeping costs low, and delivering rapid real-time response. The family has 46 product series and more than 600 devices, sustaining excellent compatibility throughout.

GigaDevice customers can now use SEGGER's emWin and AppWizard on all GD32 Cortex-M series MCUs.

SEGGER's emWin is a cutting-edge, high-performance graphical user interface solution optimised for minimum memory consumption in RAM and ROM and high speed and versatility. It supplies high-quality graphic functions and can be adapted to display of any size, physical or virtual. It is compatible with single-task and multitask environments, with a proprietary operating system or any commercial RTOS such as its embOS and embOS-Ultra.

The company's award-winning AppWizard allows the creation of highly efficient and high-quality GUIs on any embedded system without needing in-depth knowledge of the emWin graphics library or even the C language for coding.

"We are very pleased to further expand our strategic partnership with SEGGER to further enhance our graphical user interface solutions based on GD32 Cortex-M series MCU with SEGGER emWin," says GigaDevice. "SEGGER emWin can help developers achieve professional embedded GUI in a short time and also has excellent performance on resource-limited platforms. In the end, the corresponding C language program code is generated, which can greatly reduce the development difficulty and the time to market."

"We continue to be impressed by the innovation at GigaDevice and are happy to be supporting their products as we have done for many years," says SEGGER. "We look forward to strengthening our partnership for years to come and to continuing to innovate and enhance our products."
