A GUI suite of development tools optimized for embedded devices is targeted as a complete GUI software development solution for resource-constrained devices. Prism from Blue Water Embedded delivers the eye-catching graphical capabilities and time-to-market edge needed for medical, industrial, office automation and consumer markets where user interfaces play an essential role in device design. 

Prism is comprised of the Prism Runtime Framework, a full-featured GUI toolkit; Prism Micro, a GUI toolkit for monochrome to 8-bit color-depth targets; and Prism Insight, a desktop GUI design and resource editing tool. The complete framework and toolset automates the design and deployment of advanced graphical interfaces for embedded systems, incorporating a high-performance graphical drawing library and a GUI widget set. 

With these tools, developers can design embedded user interfaces with rich animations, screens transitions, alpha blending, anti-aliasing and canvas transformations. Prism Micro, a variation of Prism Runtime Framework, is tailored to meet the special requirements of cost-constrained, lower color depth targets. Requiring exceptionally low overhead, Prism Micro is very small and easily ported to virtually any hardware configuration capable of supporting graphical output.

The development platform Prism Insight enables a drag-and-drop WYSIWYG environment. Incorporating TrueType font technology, the Insight Resource Editor defines buttons, menus and other widgets so developers can customize screen layout as required. With the Animation Designer, developers can specify screen flows and select from a wide range of built-in or customized screen transition effects and animations. Prism Insight offers a large range of data output formats such as ANSI C/C++ source code, XML screen description files and binary resource files, enabling developers to tailor output to the requirements and capabilities of target systems. Pricing starts at $2,000 with full source code and is royalty-free.
