SHIPTide Rapid GUI Development Tool

Quickly Build a Modern User Experience

The Serious Human Interface™ Platform Total IDE (SHIPTide) is a no-cost, rapid graphic user interface (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 HMI Module (SIM). Built-in firmware called "SHIPEngine", on boot, unpacks and makes the GUI described in the cargo come alive.
