Qt for MCUs is a complete graphics framework and toolkit with everything you need to design, develop, test, and deploy GUIs on embedded MCUs. Run your application on bare metal or a real-time operating system.
Qt for MCUs graphics engine for QML-based UIs has a low footprint optimized for embedded microcontrollers.
Use our ready-made UI elements tailored to MCUs instead of creating them from scratch and customize them to fit your own branded look and feel.
Tools to convert QML-based UIs to native C++ code for embedded MCUs and other resource-constrained devices.
Boost your software development experience with Qt Creator, a responsive and intuitive cross-platform IDE featuring WYSIWYG UI design, a code editor with syntax completion, visual debugging & profiling tools, and more!Development Tools
Qt Design Studio allows UI/UX designers to import designs from Photoshop, Sketch, and combine them with Qt's UltraLite controls, where you can bring them to life with easy-to-animation and prototyping tools. Even better, it turns your designs into QML code so developers can work on the application logic simultaneously.Qt Design Studio

"In our field, high accuracy, full reliability and finesse in design go hand in hand with top performance—low memory footprint and instant boot, foremost—all features that Qt for MCUs includes out of the box."
X2D 100C camera uses Qt on both its touch displays, including Qt for MCUs on its new 1.08-inch colored top display, reporting the camera status and shooting parameters.
"Qt was a game-changer for us in creating the microdisplay for our new camera. Despite the initial challenges we faced with memory, fonts, and layout, the direct support from Qt Group was exceptional. We were able to effectively leverage the wealth of online cases in the Qt community and achieve outstanding results."
"When we started developing our touchscreen multi-function controller on an NXP i.MX RT1170 board, we had concerns about the hardware capabilities for our use case. It was a great relief to see that Qt for MCUs allowed us to efficiently deploy all the planned functionalities and to do so in half the expected time.
Thanks to Qt separation of hardware and software development, it was easy to view and test the UI on our desktops and deploy it to the actual hardware only for testing the performance. This saved us a lot of time and effort."
"In our line of work, it’s particularly important to have a system you can rely on."
