2016

Embedded GUI Development Industry Interface design Software Consultants

Mjølner and our sister company, Draupner Graphics, helped Mettler Toledo with the graphical user interface (GUI) development of one of their precision balances.

We integrated the GUI framework, TouchGFX, with Mettler Toledo’s existing software in order to achieve high-end graphics with instant response.

THE CHALLENGE

Mjølner and our sister company, Draupner Graphics, helped Mettler Toledo with the graphical user interface (GUI) development of one of their precision balances.

We integrated the GUI framework, TouchGFX, with Mettler Toledo’s existing software in order to achieve high-end graphics with instant response.

Mettler Toledo is a global provider of precision instruments and services. For this particular project, they wanted to create a user-friendly state-of-the-art product with a visually great, fast, and precise GUI.

 

USING THE TOUCHGFX GUI FRAMEWORK

After evaluating the functions and capabilities of TouchGFX, Mettler Toledo decided on using the GUI framework as an integrated part of their existing software. This was to maximize the performance of their Arm Cortex-M hardware, and boost their GUI development process.

 

INTEGRATING TOUCHGFX AND METTLER TOLEDO’S FRAMEWORK

Aside from taking part in the extensive GUI development and designing the software architecture, we helped Mettler Toledo integrate TouchGFX with their own framework.

One of Mjølner’s TouchGFX developers worked on-site for six months at Mettler Toledo’s headquarter in Switzerland, where he refined existing GUI elements in TouchGFX.

 

Refining existing GUI elements

 

SHARED CODE BASE FOR DIFFERENT SCREEN SIZES

Creating large and complex applications is always a challenging task. An important consideration for Mettler Toledo was the number of different screen sizes. We reduced the time spent on customizing graphics and GUI maintenance by creating one shared code base for all the different screen sizes.

As Mettler Toledo needed a user-friendly and intuitive menu, sparring and alignment across academic fields was vital in order to create a successful product.

Mettler Toledo now has a TouchGFX based product they are very satisfied with.
