About BSQUARE CE EmbeddedDesktop
Until now, it was necessary to design a customized user interface, or desktop,
almost from scratch. Now, the BSQUARE CE EmbeddedDesktop user interface builder
saves designers weeks, months, and in some cases, even a year in design time.
Early product feedback from initial customers give this product an "A for ease
of use," where the CE EmbeddedDesktop enabled them to successfully develop a
user interface in less than a day.
Developers begin with the default or sample embedded desktops provided in the
toolkit. The next step is to use the simple text-based Embedded Desktop
Language to program the "look and feel" of the desktop. The program is compiled
using the included Embedded Desktop Language Compiler, and the new image is a
space-saving size of less than 230K.
The BSQUARE CE EmbeddedDesktop is available for a $9,995.00 site license. Run-
time royalties will be negotiated with individual customers based on unit
