As embedded devices increase in functionality and capability, the need for user interface improvements also increases. Often end users expect the look and feel of a desktop system. The ability to use vector fonts, such as True Type fonts, helps to meet this requirement. PSA has implemented eTTF, a vector font solution for VxWorks applications. This solution provides the ability to include True Type or other vector fonts in your target application, including multi-byte fonts. Advanced capabilities such as scaling, rotation and anti-aliasing are supported.
eTTF utilizes the FreeType font engine and includes a WindML font driver. eTTF is installed into the Tornado tree and is fully configurable with the WindML GUI so that the Font Engine and WindML Font Driver can be configured and then built as part of WindML. Hence, there is no integration effort on the part of the developer: just install, configure, and rebuild WindML.
