STMicroelectronics has released version 4.20 of its TouchGFX user-interface design software which is an advanced, free-of-charge GUI optimized for STM32 microcontrollers and its latest updates include support for ST’s new NeoChrom graphics accelerator, which is integrated into advanced MCUs such as the new STM32U5 series. Developed from ST’s Chrom-ART Accelerator, NeoChrom allows full-screen rotation at any angle and supports texture mapping for smooth, fluid graphics and enhanced ease of use.
TouchGFX 4.20 adds important new features for developers, including support for importing and exporting custom widgets. The environment comprises TouchGFXDesigner, the graphical development tool, and X-CUBE-TOUCHGFX embedded software, which provides all the firmware needed to run the user interface on the target MCU. Fully integrated with the STM32Cube MCU-development ecosystem, TouchGFX provides a complete end-to-end workflow that simplifies design and accelerates time to market.
