QVGA touchscreen UI design tools?

Started by Spehro Pefhany October 26, 2009
What tool options would the cognoscenti suggest for a UI design
incorporating a QVGA touchscreen?

Needs to have buttons, dynamic and static content etc., probably not
animation or video. Probably ARM based, but could be PIC32 or
something else. 

Thanks for any suggestions.

If you are talking software, I have had good results with the Micrium/Segger uC/GUI. I have used it on touchscreen projects a few times, all on ARMs, both 7's and 9's. I haven't used a PIC32 for anything yet. -- Scott Validated Software Lafayette, CO __________ Information from ESET NOD32 Antivirus, version of virus signature database 4548 (20091027) __________ The message was checked by ESET NOD32 Antivirus. http://www.eset.com

Thanks, Scott, I'll check that out.
