Crank Software and NXP Build UIs for Embedded Devices with Latest MCUXpresso SDK Release

February 4, 2020 Tiera Oliver

Crank Software has collaborated with NXP Semiconductors to offer access to reference example applications through the latest release of the NXP MCUXpresso software development kit (SDK) including Crank Storyboard.

The NXP MCUXpresso SDK is a comprehensive software enablement package designed to simplify and accelerate application development with NXP’s microcontrollers based on Arm Cortex-M cores. The MCUXpresso SDK brings together open-source drivers, middleware, and reference example applications into a customizable application to help speed the processor board evaluation and software development process.

Storyboard is an embedded UI design and development software tool that was built to help accelerate the creation of exceptional UIs for today’s embedded products. With Storyboard's parallel workflow, designers can be focused on the UI, while developers concentrate on hardware performance for the design, without compromising the other team's progress.

By decoupling the front-end UI design from the back-end logic, Storyboard makes it easier for project teams to get started earlier on development, while reducing the complexities of developing UIs for embedded devices, such as the handling of iterations in design that naturally occur in all projects.
