Candera CGI Studio Now Supporting Traveo™ II MCUs
July 1, 2020 / Linz / Austria – For many years, Candera’s CGI Studio has been the HMI creation tool of choice when it comes to developing powerful HMI solutions on embedded Graphic MCUs for cost sensitive applications. Candera proudly presents CGI Studio, running on Cypress’ Traveo™ II automotive MCU, that supports all available features of this capable device like multi-core, as well as all-render modes – from IBO, LBO to OTF.
With more than 20 years of embedded software experience, Candera supports customers worldwide in HMI creation – from low-end MCUs to high-end SoCs. “We know that especially MCUs with their massive restrictions on RAM and ROM are challenging HMI developers when it comes to creating powerful and reliable Human Machine Interfaces,” says Reinhard Füricht, general manager of Candera. “With more than two decades of experience in the market of embedded software, we started to develop UI creation tools in times where low-end devices were our daily business. Therefore, our core product, CGI Studio, is highly optimized for runtime and memory performance with a special focus on low-memory footprint.”

Starting in July, CGI Studio is now officially supporting Cypress’ Traveo II Graphic MCUs (CYT4DN series), the newest member of the Traveo MCU lineup. As always, we aim to fully leverage each of the MCU’s capabilities to its fullest with CGI Studio. Traveo II is a particularly strong contender in market segment up to Full-HD resolutions, offering unique features like multi-core, as well as all-render modes like:
• IBO (Image-based operation) for traditional frame buffer drawing
• LBO (Line-based operation) Increased BLIT engine performance and reduced memory
• OTF (On-the-fly mode) to reduce VRAM memory consumption
“Cypress has developed high-performance HMI solutions with Candera for several years now, including the automotive instrument cluster on our current reference board that was created with CGI Studio,” says Sven Natus, vice president of the Automotive Business Unit at Cypress, an Infineon Technologies company. “We appreciate that Candera is now supporting the entire feature set of our latest Traveo II family, allowing customers to leverage the full performance of the graphic subsystem and to further reduce their BOM cost.”
The latest HMI solution running on Traveo II is a fully digital instrument cluster that has been created with CGI Studio 3.9, released only a few weeks ago.
