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:

SHIPTide v5 enables SIM firmware updates in seconds!
This capability was introduced in SHIPTide v5.0.107 and expanded in .127 to include a "web live" feature where SHIPTide will automatically pull new firmware updates from the web for your SIM -- no more hunting this site to find the latest firmware, though you still have the ability of installing from manually downloaded files.
You need SHIPEngine v5.0.107 or later installed on your SIM. If not, you'll have to go through a one-time update process:
|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 firmware from SHIPTide|
|SIM115, SIM231, or SIM535 (Production Versions)||v5.0.107+||See below for updating firmware from SHIPTide|
|SIM115, SIM231, or SIM535 (Pre-release Versions)||any||contact Serious|
|SIM205, 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 and launch it with your SIM connected to your PC.
You can still manually install firmware files from your PC's hard drive. On the SIM Firmware Updater panel, select Files:
and then manually select the files for download to your SIM and select Program.
