Adeneo Embedded releases Windows Embedded Compact 7 support for Texas Instruments' latest ARM Cortex-A8 based devices

Enterprise- to industrial-focused OEMs can now leverage Adeneo Embedded's support services for the Windows Embedded Compact platform on Texas Instrument's latest Sitara(tm) ARM microprocessors and DaVinci(tm) technologies video processors

Nuremberg, Germany, February 28, 2012 - Adeneo Embedded, a Microsoft Windows Embedded Gold Partner and recipient of the “Windows Embedded Excellence Award” from 2007 through 2011, announces the availability of Windows Embedded Compact 7 reference board support packages (BSPs), along with a full suite of support services, including customized support, training and development services, —to assist original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) developing embedded devices, for the AM335x and AM384x Sitara™ ARM® microprocessors (MPUs) and DM816x DaVinci™ video processors from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI).

Combining TI’s latest ARM Cortex-A8-based applications processor technology with Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Compact 7 platform of tools and technologies creates new opportunities to develop innovative devices with rich multimedia capabilities for enterprise and industrial applications. Examples of advanced features include multi-tasking, immersive Web browsing experiences and advanced graphical capabilities with Silverlight for Windows Embedded.

The latest version of the Texas Instruments “unified BSP” for Windows Embedded Compact 7 supports TI ARM Cortex-A8 devices, including OMAP35x, AM335x, AM35x, AM37x, AM384x Sitara ARM MPUs and DM37x and DM816x DaVinci video processors. The BSP is distributed as a free source code package by Adeneo Embedded from its website.

Adeneo Embedded, an active member of TI’s Design Network, collaborated with TI to develop this reference BSP, and marries its deep knowledge of TI ARM technology with its extensive Windows Embedded Compact experience to create a breadth of expertise invaluable to OEMs seeking to differentiate their designs. This expertise uniquely positions Adeneo Embedded to deliver superior customer services supporting system integration, BSP, drivers and application development as well as performance optimization.

Windows Embedded Compact 7 provides developers, designers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with a powerful real-time OS and a full suite of development tools, enabling an integrated, streamlined development experience to speed devices to market.

The Sitara AM335x platform is a cost and performance optimized solution targeting portable, pocket-sized applications. Starting at $5 and consuming as low as 7 mW of power, the AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 MPUs provide low power consumption while prolonging battery life and reducing heat emissions. Developers have access to a high performance processor with advanced 3D graphics capabilities, touch screen controller and sophisticated peripherals all on a single chip. The Sitara AM384x and DaVinci DM816x platforms focus on delivering high performance capabilities. These solutions provide up to 1.5 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 performance with high system integration for faster, more robust applications. These highly integrated tools support multiple high-performance interfaces, such as PCIExpress Gen2, dual USB 2.0, SATA 2.0, dual Gigabit Ethernet and DDR2/DDR3 interfaces.

"The richness of features provided by TI’s Sitara ARM microprocessor and DaVinci video processors families, combined with the Adeneo Embedded system integration expertise on Windows Embedded Compact 7 is an excellent solution to ensure OEMs’ design success. Device makers using advanced ARM Cortex-A8 processor architectures have the highest levels of performance and capability for their devices, and require top-level expertise on OS integration and optimization. OEMs can rely on the Adeneo Embedded engineering teams located in Europe and North America to receive best-in-class support for their Windows Embedded Compact 7-based developments using TI ARM Cortex-A8 devices.”

Yannick Chammings, Chief Executive Officer, Adeneo Embedded
