Infineon enhances the TRAVEO T2G MCU family with Qt Group graphics solution

1 min read

With the demand for fluid and high-resolution graphical displays increasing, Infineon Technologies has announced a strategic collaboration with Qt Group, a global software company that provides cross-platform solutions for the entire software development lifecycle.

This collaboration brings Qt's lightweight, high-performance graphics framework to Infineon's graphics enabled TRAVEO T2G cluster microcontrollers and represents a significant shift in graphical user interface (GUI) development.

Today, microcontrollers are able to offer extensive graphical capabilities that enable compact designs, cost-efficiency, and lower power consumption.

With features such as instant boot-up, small footprint and efficient real-time processing, they are widely used in various sectors, including automotive instrument clusters, two-wheelers, construction machinery, industrial and medical applications.

Infineon's TRAVEO T2G MCUs have been designed to meet the requirements of these applications, especially the TRAVEO T2G cluster family.

This device family provides graphical user interfaces with high refresh rates and up to full HD resolution and by integrating the Qt graphics solution directly into these MCUs, Infineon is able to further optimises these devices and enable intelligent rendering technology.

Consequently, designers will enjoy benefits such as:

  • Up to 5x more efficient memory usage compared to the market average.
  • Up to 2x faster boot time compared to average boot times in the market.
  • Up to 50 percent shorter time to market, from design to production.

“Whether in the automotive industry, healthcare or industrial automation, responsive user interfaces with high-quality graphics are essential,” said Toni Paila, Director, Qt for MCUs at Qt Group. “However, the MCUs used for these applications typically lack integrated advanced design and development tools especially for modern user interfaces. Supporting Infineon in bridging this gap will enable device manufacturers to deliver outstanding user interfaces with low memory footprints on their MCUs. This will allow designers to create GUIs that were previously considered impossible due to resource constraints.”

“Qt's efficient design and development workflow has accelerated our UI application development,” said Ralf Ködel, Vice President Microcontrollers at Infineon. “By extending this efficiency to our microcontrollers, our customers can significantly shorten the time to market – from product design to production.”
