UI framework speeds up software ecosystem creation

Digia's Qt 5 cross-platform application and user interface (UI) development framework is ideal for developers of embedded systems.

The open source framework enables developers to realise applications and companies to create their own software ecosystems fast. Qt enables the creation of the type of rich graphics and smooth animations that users increasingly expect, as well as rigorous and complex applications with intuitive UIs. And, because the applications are native to their respective systems, they extract the maximum performance from the underlying hardware.

Key benefits of Qt 5 include graphics quality with the use of OpenGL ES; performance on constrained hardware; cross-platform portability; support for C++11; HTML5 support with QtWebKit 2; a vastly improved QML engine with new APIs; ease of use and compatibility with Qt 4 versions. Qt supports embedded operating systems including Embedded Linux, Windows Embedded and the most widely deployed real-time operating systems for embedded devices – Wind River VxWorks, QNX Neutrino and Green Hills Software INTEGRITY – together with all major desktop operating systems (including Windows, Mac OS X and Linux) and popular mobile OSes.
