Altia and Altera have collaborated to provide the optimal solution to get a custom HMI design from the artist’s imagination to the lowest cost hardware in the shortest amount of time. This paper describes Altia’s chain of user interface design and deployment tools. Altia’s tools can be used individually or together in a model-based process to develop your user interface. Start with Adobe Photoshop, end on an Altera’ FPGA. Altia’s tools help you prototype, simulate, and deploy your HMI with PhotoProto, Altia Design, and DeepScreen.
