In the highly competitive global semiconductor market, manufacturers are constantly striving for shorter time-to-market. At the same time, the demand for fluid and high-resolution graphical displays is increasing. To address these market demands, Infineon Technologies AG announces its strategic collaboration with Qt Group, a global software company providing 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 paradigm shift in graphical user interface (GUI) development.

Microcontrollers nowadays 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 are 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. By integrating the Qt graphics solution directly into these MCUs, Infineon further optimizes these devices and enables intelligent rendering technology with 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. We are therefore proud to support Infineon in bridging this gap and enabling 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, coupled with over 30 years of production experience in various industries, 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.”

A live demonstration of Qt for MCUs on Infineon`s TRAVEO™ T2G will be showcased at Qt`s booth at Embedded World 2024 in Nuremberg from April 9 to 11 in Hall 4, Stand 4-258.
