Mobica and DiSTI Initiate Partner Program for User Interface Excellence
DiSTI and MOBICA partner to expand global focus on excellence in user interface development.
Orlando, FL (February 23, 2016) â€“ The DiSTI Corporation, a leading provider of graphical user interface development software to the automotive, aerospace, and medical industries announces a formalized partnership with Mobica. This is the first in a series of partnerships aimed at creating a network of companies with a global focus on excellence in user interface development.
Mobica is a global provider of high quality, leading edge software engineering, testing and consultancy services. Mobica has exhibited proficiency in developing user interface applications using DiSTIâ€™s GL Studio which powers the visual front end of todayâ€™s top performing clusters and infotainment systems. Applications built by Mobica, using GL Studio, seamlessly handle high performance graphics across multiple displays on a single system on a chip (SoC).
â€śDiSTIâ€™s toolchain allows OEMs to create cutting edge user experiences; Mobicaâ€™s embedded software engineering expertise will bring these experiences to consumers rapidly, to a high level of quality, whilst exploiting the underlying SoCâ€™s performance-enhancing technologies,â€ť said Jim Carroll, CTO Mobica. â€śWe are pleased to be a key part of DiSTIâ€™s Partner Program, and look forward to deploying these solutions in a broad range of devices.â€ť
In their latest collaboration, DiSTI built their runtime engine to run on the Renesas R-Car H3, which is the third generation R-Car SoC, using their user interface software, GL Studio. The display built by Mobica is an HD cluster and an HD infotainment system running on a single R-Car H3 system. The application will be showcased at the DiSTI UI Experience booth #4-616 at the 2016 Embedded World conference in Nuremberg in February and at the Automotive Megatrends Connected Car event in Dearborn in March.
â€śThe Mobica management team, UI Designers, and HMI Engineers are highly skilled and have an excellent grasp on using GL Studio to produce forward-looking high-performing user interfaces,â€ť said Christopher Giordano, Vice President, DiSTI Automotive Division. â€śOur successful collaboration on our previous endeavours made the decision to formalize a partnership an easy one.â€ť
