QNX, SoftIntegration Team Up to Provide High-Level C++ Graphical Plotting Library for QNX Neutrino RTOS

DAVIS, Calif., May 9, 2008 - SoftIntegration, Inc., the leader of scripting technology for ubiquitous computing, today announced the release of cross platform SoftIntegration C++ Graphical Library (SIGL) v2.5 for the QNX® Neutrino® RTOS. SoftIntegration Graphical Library (SIGL) is the simplest solution for 2D/3D graphical plotting within the framework of C/C++. Plots can be generated using SIGL for display in a local monitor, through the Web, or saved in a file with a variety of different file formats.

SIGL meets the demand for an easy-to-use cross platform C++ graphical real-time application. It contains a plotting class with many member functions for visualization. It simplifies the graphical plotting for C++ users. You can compile and link your code with the Graphical Library using QNX C++ compiler. All functions in SIGL are supported in Ch Professional, an embeddable C/C++ interpreter. The same graphical application can be either compiled in C++ or run from Ch directly without compilation in the QNX Neutrino RTOS.

The graphical library is for applications where the convenience of use, speed and performance matter. With SIGL, you can design and deploy the graphical application running across different platforms. There is no royalty for distribution of your compiled code linked with SIGL. SIGL can save you from significant development and maintenance cost.

"Many of SoftIntegration's customers have requested SIGL for their QNX® Photon® microGUI® applications. We recognize that QNX Neutrino is one of leading realtime operating systems in the embedded industry, and we are pleased to provide a powerful C++ graphical plotting library along with C/C++ interpreter for QNX users," said Dr. Dawn Cheng, president of SoftIntegration.

"We are pleased that SoftIntegration is now offering SGIL, in addition to Ch and Embedded Ch, to the QNX development community," added Kroy Zeviar, business alliance manager at QNX Software Systems. "These solutions complement the rich suite of C/C++ tools offered by the QNX Momentics® development suite and allow QNX developers to apply their existing C/C++ skills to a greater variety of programming tasks and applications."

Below are two simple plots generated in SIGL. More demos and source code can be found here.
