The EVE Screen Designer (ESD) 4.0 is the next generation of smart IDE for EVE, making EVE-based GUI development much easier to accomplish. This tool enables users to build a GUI application using a visual programming method without needing to know any EVE-specific display list commands.
ESD 4.0 provides a WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) environment for editing graphics, designing visual effects, and defining GUI application user logic, generating ANSI C code for the targeted hardware platform. Users can also choose to simulate the whole design to experience the UI before compiling and downloading the generated source code. Furthermore, ESD 4.0 has the capability to work seamlessly with Bridgetek's FT9XX tool chain. Users can compile and link the generated source code with the FT9XX tool chain and upload it to the targeted platform without leaving ESD.
