STMicroelectronics acquires graphical user interface specialist

It has been announced that STMicroelectronics has acquired software specialist Draupner Graphics. Draupner Graphics is the developer and supplier of TouchGFX, a software framework aiming to offer outstanding graphics and smooth animations for embedded Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) with minimal resource requirements and power consumption.

Hosted on 32-bit microcontrollers, TouchGFX aims to enable high end graphics that live up to today's smartphone standards across all devices and systems, including smart home and building automation systems, appliances, wearables, and audio and video systems.

STMicroelectronics, manufacturer of the STM32 family of MCUs, is a supplier of 32-bit Arm Cortex-M-core MCUs with a powerful hardware and software ecosystem that accelerates and facilitates application development. Several of the STM32 product lines already support TouchGFX.

Daniel Colonna, Microcontroller Marketing Director at STMicroelectronics, stated: "Draupner's TouchGFX software is a highly advanced and optimised graphic user interface solution for microcontrollers. We have been working closely with the team for five years and regularly see the value TouchGFX is already delivering on STM32 MCUs in different consumer, appliances, industrial, and medical applications. The acquisition of Draupner Graphics will accelerate both TouchGFX and STM32 roadmaps to offer embedded developers and their customers more advanced features, raising the bar of human-machine interfaces across all of the devices that people interact with every day." 

Jorgen Mygind, Business Development Manager for Draupner, added: "As a leading software vendor on the global market, joining the leading supplier of 32-bit embedded MCUs will give us early access to roadmaps and plans that will speed feature integration and increase adoption of our tools and STM32 MCUs."
