The Serious Human Interface™ Platform Total IDE (SHIPTide) is a rapid GUI development tool enabling the GUI designer to completely specify all aspects of your user interface, including layout, events, actions, and resources (fonts, images, etc.).
SHIPTide exports a binary file called a "cargo", that is loaded onto the bulk FLASH storage of a Serious Integrated Module. SHIPEngine then, on boot, unpacks and makes the GUI described in the cargo come alive:
|Version 5||Version 4|

Starting with SHIPTide v5.0.107, you can now update any SIM with firmware v5.0.107 and newer in just seconds from within SHIPTide.
Depending on which SHIPEngine version is installed in your SIM currently, you may have to perform a one-time update to get your SIM to v5.0.107 or later to access this capability:
|SIM225 or Renesas YLCDRX64N/YLCDRX63NE||prior to v5.0.107||follow these one-time instructions|
|SIM225 or Renesas YLCDRX64N/YLCDRX63NE||v5.0.107+||See below for updating SHIPEngine from SHIPTide|
|Release version of SIM115, SIM231, or SIM535||v5.0.107+||See below for updating SHIPEngine from SHIPTide|
|Pre-Release/Eng Sample of SIM115, SIM231, or SIM535||any||contact Serious|
|SIM205 and SIM102||v4||There is no SHIPv5 support planned for these models|
|SIM110||v4||Serious is investigating SHIPv5 support; contact Serious|
First, download the latest SHIPEngine v5 for your SIM.
Then launch SHIPTide, and select File->SIM Programming:
You will then see the SIM Programming Panel, where you can not only update the SIM's firmware, but also its boot loader elements as well as its GUI all in one operation. If you want to update multiple SIMs of the same time in the same way, you can have several SIMs plugged into your PC and select multiple units.
