Electronics Design Show 2018: Optimised Motor Control Design and New QNX Development Services from ByteSnap


On stand L22 at the Electronics Design Show 2018, an overhead cable car demonstration will show how ByteSnap’s engineers use their motor control design skills to optimise product development.

The 3D-printed cable car houses a 360-degree camera (with architecture built by our embedded hardware specialists) which will send data to a PC for processing and display.

“Our Alpine cable car demo shows our development of hardware and software of a 360 camera coupled with an embedded motor control unit and OpenGL image processing to display a full stitched image in real-time on an i.MX8 embedded system.
“The demo shows off our skills in building hard real-time systems, Linux embedded systems and also in OpenGL application development,” says our Director, Graeme Wintle.

EDS 2018 is where we’ll be unveiling our new QNX Development services. On our stand will be a demonstration featuring the newest version of ByteSnap’s flagship product,  SnapUI – specially rebuilt to run on the QNX platform.

UI Development Tool SnapUI now runs on QNX


“In addition to our embedded Linux porting skills we are proud to demonstrate our movement into QNX,” continues Graeme Wintle.

“Our demonstration features QNX on an iMX6 platform running our SnapUI user interface. This combination provides a high reliability system with our easy-to-use accelerated OpenGL graphics framework.”

The embedded software specialists at ByteSnap rebuilt SnapUI to run on QNX on various iMX6 platforms. They’ve also got it running on the Karo platform, following a collaboration with distributor/developer Direct Insight.


V2G Technology


In addition, ByteSnap’s consultants will be on hand to share their experience in developing products for the electric vehicle charging market.

Among ByteSnap’s significant design wins this year – a Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) project which will see the consultancy developing an OCPP module and companion Android app.
