The Tilcon Interface Development Suite (IDS) is a multi-platform user interface development solution (GUI/HMI Builder) that delivers robust, highly interactive user interfaces for real-time, embedded and mission critical applications. This introduction is intended to provide a high level technical overview of the Tilcon IDS. The first part of this chapter will provide a basic overview of the software. We will also detail the compiler, processor and operating systems supported. We will then provide a quick overview of how our technology works from the user’s perspective followed by a more in-depth examination of the architecture of the Tilcon system and its relationship to a user application. Some of the strong points of the architecture will be reviewed as well as portability and the ability to reconfigure a Tilcon application.
