Webinar "optimizing Qt performance"

optimizing Qt performance

Scaling from microcontroller to i.MX6 and i.MX8

Embedded Linux based devices with Qt as a cross-platform framework enjoy great popularity. However, the realization of today's user interfaces also places high demands on the hardware.

In the free webinar of Ginzinger electronic systems and partner Sequality on May 13th, 2020, questions concerning the optimization of the performance of Qt for microcontrollers, i.MX6 and i.MX8 will be answered.


Qt for modern, user-friendly interfaces

Qt is the ideal application framework for the realization of modern and user-friendly user interfaces. With powerful, efficient ARM-based hardware, Qt offers a wide range of application possibilities as a development environment for embedded, mobile and desktop.

Based on C++ source, a graphical application with connection to industrial bus systems can be built easily and quickly in the proprietary programming language QML. Qt is spreading rapidly because of its industrial suitability and flexibility and offers continuously new possibilities and improvements for potential new device developments.

Since December 2019, it has been possible to operate parts of the Qt framework at the lower end of the performance spectrum with "Qt for Microcontroller", which is also a "bare metal" framework for microcontrollers (without embedded Linux operating system).

At the upper end of the product range, you can see that the new product family around the i.MX8 is now slowly emerging from the prototype stage on the market and is getting ready to offer additional variants with more CPU and, above all, more GPU performance to the proven i.MX6 product family.


Choice of platform decisive for performance

Typically, this also results in one or two performance limits with regard to an application. The decision whether and which new hardware platform to use needs to be well considered.

As has also become apparent in recent years, high-performance embedded touch display applications are often not limited by the CPU (Central Processing Unit), but by the GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and memory bandwidth. There are no official benchmarks for embedded processors.

What the webinar is all about

The webinar "Optimizing Qt Performance" will answer questions about optimizing Qt on different platforms. Together with Stefan Larndorfer from sequality, we will show you in the webinar on 13 May 2020 how the implementation on microcontroller as well as high-performance projects works.

Together, we will analyze the typical performance bottlenecks in the implementation of applications and explain how the new i.MX8 processors compare to well-known hardware platforms such as the i.MX6 Dual-Lite, i.MX6 Quad-Core, Rasperry Pi 3 and 4 in terms of performance.

Furthermore we present the embedded Linux GPU benchmark developed by sequality by means of numerous live demo videos.
