Tilcon, Telelogic Team on Embedded Graphical Display Solution

Tilcon Software Limited, a global leader in multi-platform graphical user interface (GUI) technology for embedded devices and Telelogic (Nordic Exchange/MidCap/TLOG) (STO:TLOG), the leading provider of software solutions that align advanced systems and software development with business objectives have formed a technology partnership that has resulted in the integration of their respective technologies.

Telelogic Rhapsody(R) and Tilcon’s Interface Development Suite (IDS) can address a wide range of graphical user interface needs. From prototyping to full production embedded display solutions, this integration delivers an innovative, easy-to-use Model Driven Development(TM) (MDD(TM)) environment for embedded developers. Integrating Tilcon’s API and GUI engine with Rhapsody streamlines the embedded user’s interface development. This fully enabled solution is targeted at high-performance automotive telematics systems and advanced instrument clusters, as well as defense and commercial vehicle dashboard displays, consumer products, high-end industrial control and medical monitoring systems.

“Telelogic is focused on helping our customers improve their product development lifecycle – directly through the use of our products and indirectly through partnerships with key technology suppliers,” said Greg Sikes, Executive Vice President, Modeling Solutions, for Telelogic. “The integration of Telelogic Rhapsody and Tilcon IDS enhances the MDD environment for GUI intensive requirements in automotive, defense, medical and industrial applications.”

“Customers who want to leverage the market leading Rhapsody MDD environment to deliver rich 2D and 3D display functionality will be excited by the synergy arising from this combination of the Tilcon IDS and Telelogic Rhapsody,” said Prosanto Sarkar, Vice President of Marketing at Tilcon Software. “The Tilcon solution provides the developer with the ability to rapidly create a graphical user interface and Rhapsody provides the means for complete application generation leading to substantially shortened development times. Once completed, all screens will run unchanged on leading embedded operating systems. This industry-leading collaboration addresses our customers’ demands for tightly integrated graphical display solutions, thereby greatly accelerating time to market and enhancing time to revenue.”
