TouchGFX software update accelerates user-interface design on STM32 MCUs
STMicroelectronics has released the latest version of the TouchGFX software package. According to STMicroelectronics, Release 4.21 makes it easier to build user interfaces (UIs) for applications hosted on STM32 microcontrollers.
Release 4.21 features TouchGFX Stock, a large set of free graphics designs, images and icons which help users manage graphical assets to ensure consistent prototypes and end products
STMicroelectronics has also added support for SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) image format, which gives even more creative design freedom. Accessed via the new TouchGFX Designer tool, SVG leverages special graphics hardware available in ST’s STM32 MCUs, such as the NeoChrom GPU processor.
In addition, there are over 50 further enhancements in the TouchGFX Designer, to aspects such as navigation and general usability that help developers realise ideas more quickly and efficiently, said ST.
The STM32 development ecosystem includes software tools, MCU-specific middleware and evaluation boards. Combined with TouchGFX, designers have access to everything needed to create compelling user interfaces for products such as home appliances, building automation controls, industrial machinery, fitness trackers and other wearables and medical devices, said ST.
TouchGFX version 4.21 is available now, free of charge, by downloading the X-CUBE-TOUCHGFX software package.
