Altia CloudWare™, a cloud-based Hardware-as-a-Service (HaaS) solution, is now available to all companies developing embedded graphical user interfaces (GUIs) for production devices. The newest product in Altia’s GUI development software suite, CloudWare™ allows GUI developers to remotely access and pair Altia’s graphical user interface software with popular embedded hardware to create a test drive experience for their GUI from anywhere in the world.
Officially launched at CES 2023 and previewed prior to the show with key partners and customers, Altia CloudWare™ is already being recognized as a game-changing solution for improved collaboration, fast access to production hardware and simplified hardware testing to find the right-sized hardware for a GUI project.
“At Altia, we work with companies developing graphical displays for production and we learn a lot about the challenges they have experienced in previous projects. It’s our mission is to make embedded GUIs easy, so we created CloudWare™ to simplify benchmarking, testing and running GUI designs on any supported hardware from anywhere in the world,” stated Mike Juran, Altia CEO. “With the prevalence of distributed teams, this new tool also enables immediate collaboration with a unified hardware-software stack. GUI teams will turn months of collaboration time into minutes with CloudWare™.”
“This hardware-in-the-cloud solution offered by Altia will enable our customers to rapidly evaluate NXP® Semiconductors’ high-performance MCUs and MPUs and make it easy for them to choose from the wide range of NXP devices available for their GUI-based products,” said Jeff Steinheider, Vice President and General Manager, Industrial Edge, NXP. “The production-proven pairing of Altia GUI software with i.MX 8QuadMax in the cloud is a major advance in HMI development. With coming support for i.MX RT1170 and i.MX 93 families, our customers will be able to quickly and easily explore our broad portfolio to find an optimal solution for their needs.”
“Altia CloudWare™ is more than just a product we’re offering to customers. As a global company, we have engineers all over the world who are actively using this tool for our own demo and product development,” stated Mike Morgan, Altia Director of Product Delivery. “Not only has CloudWare™ enabled us to troubleshoot our GUI development in real time, but it makes our engineering team members even more productive and successful. We’re collaborating more effectively and with greater certainty because we are developing and testing for the exact same hardware.”
