About IData
An embedded graphical application must meet the rigors of real world requirements, where responsiveness and reliability are critical on constrained resources and tiny footprints. IData tools manage this while offering the flexibility to integrate with different operating systems, hardware and software. Graphical interfaces must display compelling content, including dynamic data displays with innovative user interaction, live video and sensor data, powerful geospatial information, and complex 3D content. The IData application development toolset and cross-platform graphical application engine enable you to develop and deploy high-powered embedded graphics applications at the highest level of performance.
