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.
