Adding a graphical touch screen interface to a product typically raises the overall system power consumption, but with Amulet’s new low power functions, touch screen designers can now have their cake and eat it too. --Ken Klask, Amulet CTO

Amulet Technologies, a recognized leader in graphical user interface (GUI) solutions for embedded systems, is pleased to announce the release of GEMstudio™ v.184.108.40.206, now supporting low power operating modes and real-time clock calendar functions in Amulet’s GEM family of GUI products.
GEMstudio, Amulet’s proprietary software tool, is the easiest, fastest and most flexible graphical user interface (GUI) design software in the embedded space. GEMstudio integrates tools for visual layout, interactive PC based simulation, and programming of the flash memory in the target embedded hardware. It’s a true WYSIWYG tool that requires no coding for the GUI layout. Using the GEMstudio drag-and-drop GUI development environment for embedded systems allows designers to create smartphone-like user interfaces in days or weeks, instead of months or years.
Battery life of portable devices using Amulet’s innovative GUI technology will increase, and appliance manufacturers with displays driven by Amulet will be more likely to reach the low power consumption standards required for energy efficiency certification. In addition, Amulet Technologies has added a real-time clock calendar that works even in low power consumption modes, benefitting customers with time-stamping applications in markets such as medical, networking gear, financial, and industrial applications. Other notable improvements available in the new GEMstudio release relate to productivity enhancements that facilitate our customers’ GUI designs; GEMstudio editors now have new functions such as autocomplete, find and replace, and keyword highlighting.
"Adding a graphical touch screen interface to a product typically raises the overall system power consumption, but with Amulet’s new low power functions, touch screen designers can now have their cake and eat it too. Touch screen interfaces can now be programmed with GEMstudio to be both beautiful and miserly on power at the same time. We are very proud to be able to contribute to green initiatives by helping products consume less power,” says Ken Klask, Amulet Technologies CTO.
