Bsquare Announces Key Enhancements to the Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine in Latest Release

BELLEVUE, WA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - BSQUARE Corporation (NASDAQ: BSQR), a leading enabler of smart connected systems, today announced the availability of a new release of the Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine with key enhancements that support more dynamic, flexible Human-Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and engaging user experiences.

The Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine is a robust HTML5 and JavaScript environment that allows OEMs developing with Windows Embedded Compact platforms to deliver rich HTML5-based user experiences, streamline development and future-proof their devices. The high performance product is compatible with ARM platforms using Windows Embedded CE 6.0 and Windows Embedded Compact 7, and can be customized for Linux, Tizen, or any embedded hardware or software platform by Bsquare Professional Services.

The new Rendering Engine enhancements include:

  • JavaScript Extensions that provide application flexible, high performance access to system hardware components and OS resources
  • JavaScript performance improvements of up to 40% via optimized JIT (just-in-time) compiler support which improves responsiveness for HTML5-based HMI experiences
  • Mobile and Full Desktop rendering modes that provide access to HTML5 apps and content designed for either traditional desktop displays or mobile devices with smaller screens
  • WebSocket support that significantly reduces network latency and data use by enabling high-speed, low-overhead bi-directional communication between devices and the cloud

"We are very excited about the enhancements in the latest release of the Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine," states John Traynor, Senior Vice President, Products and Technology, at Bsquare. "HTML5 is a technology that provides great value to embedded developers and our rendering engine empowers OEMs and their application developer ecosystems to deliver higher performing, richer, more dynamic HTML5-based user experiences than ever before."

To date, Bsquare has distributed over one million licenses of the Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine to automotive, industrial automation and mobile device manufacturers around the world. Additionally, Bsquare was honored by Microsoft as a 2012 Americas Windows Embedded Partner Excellence Award recipient for technical excellence for the Bsquare HTML5 Rendering Engine at the annual America's Windows Embedded Gold & Silver Partner Event.
