Fachbuch aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Informatik - Programmierung, Note: 1.0, Carl-Zeiss-Gymnasium Jena / Math.- Naturw.- Techn.- Spezialschule, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Software developers for embedded devices have just now begun to discover the power of developing and running their software on GNU/Linux. As graphical environments on embedded devices have also become a crucial point for any kind of application it is majorly important to use a stable and flexible graphics system for this purpose. Therefore, this paper makes the far-reaching attempt at explaining, describing and elaborating on Nano-X, THE free and OpenSource graphical windowing environment of choice for smaller devices. Unfortunately, up to this point, material concerning good and complete introductions to the Nano-X API is rarely to be found. With this paper a resourceful piece of collected and easy-to-understand compact knowledge base has been compiled for practical or any other kind of use. As this paper has been intentionally written to be used within the frames of software development for analytical gadgets, a concrete device, that is the Open Frame Smart Panel (OFSP) from Ultratronik, is taken under scrutiny and shown to be a viable device for the tasks at hand. Furthermore, some additionally relevant topics concerning Unix (especially serial port communication) are also discussed in some detail.
