MCU family with graphics solution enables intelligent rendering technologies

11-03-2024 | Infineon | Semiconductors

Infineon Technologies AG has announced its strategic collaboration with Qt Group. This collaboration brings Qt's lightweight, high-performance graphics framework to Infineon's graphics-enabled TRAVEO T2G cluster MCUs and represents a paradigm shift in GUI development.

MCUs nowadays offer comprehensive graphical capabilities that allow compact designs, cost-efficiency, and lower power consumption. With features such as instant boot-up, small footprint and efficient real-time processing, they are widely used in various sectors, including automotive instrument clusters, two-wheelers, construction machinery, industrial and medical applications. Infineon's TRAVEO T2G MCUs are created to fulfil the needs of these applications, particularly the TRAVEO T2G cluster family. This device family provides GUIs with high refresh rates and up to full HD resolution. By integrating the Qt graphics solution directly into these MCUs, the company further optimises these devices and allows intelligent rendering.

"Whether in the automotive industry, healthcare or industrial automation, responsive user interfaces with high-quality graphics are essential," said Toni Paila, director of Qt for MCUs at Qt Group. "However, the MCUs used for these applications typically lack integrated advanced design and development tools especially for modern user interfaces. We are, therefore, proud to support Infineon in bridging this gap and enabling device manufacturers to deliver outstanding user interfaces with low memory footprints on their MCUs. This will allow designers to create GUIs that were previously considered impossible due to resource constraints."

"Qt's efficient design and development workflow, coupled with over 30 years of production experience in various industries, has accelerated our UI application development," said Ralf Ködel, vice president of Microcontrollers at Infineon. "By extending this efficiency to our microcontrollers, our customers can significantly shorten the time to market – from product design to production."

A live demonstration of Qt for MCUs on Infineon's TRAVEO T2G will be showcased at Qt's booth at Embedded World 2024 from April 9 to 11 in Hall 4, Stand 4-258.
