The first browser for ARM Cortex M-4 processors.? Motomic’s new, lightweight??Butterfly Microbrowsertm?is designed to run on the Cortex-M4 and Real-Time Operating Systems (RTOS).
The??Butterfly Microbrowser renders HTML and Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) pages and extends HTML/CSS with active graphics, transparent media overlays and other features.
Motomic showed the microbrowser at Design West (formerly the Embedded Systems Conference). ?Click here to see?ARM’s interview of Motomic at the conference.
The??Butterfly Microbrowser leverages the very low?power requirements and very small footprints of Cortex-M4 processors–too small to run a web browser (WebKit, Chrome, Mozilla, etc.).? The Cortex-M4 can now accurately render HTML/CSS controlled content previously reserved for higher-end processors.
The??Butterfly Microbrowser is based on Motomic’s HTML/CSS rendering engine.? Benefits include:
- Maintain your content on a central database?instead of synchronizing distributed databases.
- Lightning fast performance.
- Runs on Kinetis, ColdFire and Power Architecture.
- Runs across Linux and RTOS including MQX.
Plus…?all the features of Motomic’s HTML/CSS for Embeddedtm?rendering engine, including:
- Lightning fast Web browsing?of HTML 4/CSS 2.1 web pages.
- Dynamic HTML.
- Embed/instance?within C, C++ or Qt applications.
And… active graphics, pipeline processing for improved image quality, leveraging multi-core processing, transparency and differeence rendering for higher performance, lower power consumption and reduced bandwidth requirements.? (See the HTML/CSS for Embedded data sheet for more details.)
Available as a stand-alone application.? A separate version is available as an SDK, so that C, C++ or Qt interfaces may be directly embedded in a customer application. ??microButterfly Microbrowser Product Data Sheet??Contact Motomic?for the latest list of supported hardware architectures.
