A core aspect of this fully comprehensive toolchain is the new Embedded Video Engine Asset Builder (EAB). This easy-to-operate conversion utility makes HMI construction much more straightforward and saves considerable time, as it means that users do not need to remember the various command line options for each different constituent utility in their design. As well as covering conversion of image, audio and font files, this intuitive tool has video conversion functionality, too, along with an animation generator (for use with the latest generation of higher-end BT81X series EVE devices).
Enhancements have also been made to the low-level EVE Screen Editor (ESE) element of the toolchain - which is intended to offer users a simple drag-and-drop environment in which they can start experimenting with EVE-based HMI projects. Helpful new usage examples can now be accessed (like those relating to the touch tracking function, use of high-quality Paletted8 bitmaps, bar graphs, etc.).
