Hard Hat Graphics is a high-end, open source environment for building state-of-the-art, graphics-based applications for embedded devices. HHG incorporates Tiny X (a small footprint version of the X 11 Window system); GTK See GTK+. +, a multi-platform graphics toolkit designed for the X Window system; Glade, a Graphical User Interface graphical user interface (GUI)

As a foundation for future designs, HHG also provides an extensible multimedia platform for developing the next generation of digital multimedia devices.
For the growing number of developers familiar with Trolltech's popular toolkit, MontaVista delivers Qt/Embedded for HHL, a package designed and tested to work with Hard Hat Linux. This graphics toolkit, optimized for embedded Linux, includes the Qt/Embedded GUI development environment, along with Qt Designer, a full-function GUI builder, and the recently introduced Qt Linguist, which provides international language translation.

"MontaVista continues to enhance its core offerings with quality upgrades and 'best in class' add-on products," said Michael Mathews, product manager at MontaVista. "Hard Hat Graphics is a high performance graphics environment while Qt/Embedded for Hard Hat Linux is a powerful graphics toolkit. These offerings provide embedded developers the flexible graphical building blocks they need for a broad range of applications, including telematics, set-top boxes, instrumentation, Internet appliances an d industrial control." Both offerings will help developers create and deliver powerful graphics-based applications for Hard Hat Linux. Both are extensible and modular, provide access to source code, and are scalable to meet the "right-sizing" requirements for today's embedded devices.
Availability Both Hard Hat Graphics and Qt/Embedded for HHL are available immediately from MontaVista to subscribers of the Hard Hat Linux 2.0 Professional Edition.
