Mentor Graphics Corp. releases the Inflexion Platform UI Express , a graphics and user interface development kit for the Android OS.

The tool allows the creation of 2D and 3D animated elements with drag-and-drop ease. And then the tool generates Java interfaces, integrates code, and creates required files automatically, in minutes, according to Mentor.

The platform enables a multitude of animations and 3D effects, such as spinning, zooming, reflections, textures, and per-pixel lighting variations. The UI can be altered without changing the underlying application logic, enabling design components to be easily reused across screens or other products. As a result, Android device designers can retarget their Inflexion-based Java applications for a variety of products in minutes, with different UI "skins" for different end-products without coding.

Mentor has supplied the platform to Funtoro, a company that makes infotainment systems for public transportation vehicles.

The Inflexion Platform UI Express for Android is available now, starting at $39,000 plus per unit royalties, including support for one seat of the UI Express tool. Versions of the Inflexion Platform UI for Nucleus and Linux OS are also available.
