STMicroelectronics Inc. has rolled out the Mentor Embedded Inflexion User Interface (UI) software product on the Structured Processor Enhanced Architecture (SPEAr) family of processors based on ARM core technology. This will allow rapid implementation of rich 2D and 3D UIs for product differentiation in target embedded control applications across market segments, from computer peripherals and communication, to industrial automation.

"The availability of Mentor Embedded Inflexion UI on STMicro's family of SPEAr embedded microprocessors will allow users to create dynamic product UIs on SPEAr processors," stated Loris Valenti, group VP and general manager, computer systems division at STMicro. "The Inflexion UI can be used on our SPEAr 320 processors, which run on ARM A926EJ-S, and will also be available shortly on the newest SPEAr1300 ARM-CortexA9 family with its powerful Open GL/ES graphics acceleration."

The Mentor Embedded Inflexion UI allows developers to rapidly develop stunning UIs without compromises, STMicro said. Developers can use the Inflexion UI software to implement their UI quickly using a drag-and-drop approach via the Inflexion UI Express PC tool and it on an efficient and powerful engine. This creates rich, dynamic, 3D consumer UIs and specialized 2D UIs in industrial and medical products. The popular Inflexion product is available on Android, Linux and Nucleus.

SPEAr microprocessors enable equipment manufacturers to develop complex, yet flexible digital engines at a fraction of the time and cost of competing solutions. Manufactured in latest low-power 90nm, 65nm and 55nm high-speed CMOS process technologies, STMicro's SPEAr embedded microprocessors provide high levels of computing power and connectivity. The devices combine one or two advanced ARM926 processor cores and Dual Cortex A9 cores with memory interfaces. It also has a large set of IP blocks delivering connectivity, communication and audio/video functions for a broad range of applications.
