Windows Embedded Compact 7 support package for i.MX quad core board
August 30, 2013 // Nick Flaherty
UK distributor and developer Direct Insight has released a Windows Embedded Compact 7 Board Support Package (BSP) for its TRITON-TXEK low-cost evaluation board for Freescale’s i.MX6 processor.
The TRITON-TXEK evaluation kit, which includes an i.MX6Q quad-core ARM Cortex-A9 processor with 1024MB DDR3 64-bit RAM, combines a low-cost entry-point for evaluation of the i.MX6 with a route into manufacture by virtue of the inclusion of a production-ready system-on-module – the TRITON-TX6Q - measuring just 68xx x 31mm – which carries the processor, memory and power management, and connects to the baseboard via a 200 pin SODIMM connector.
Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Compact 7 is a is a componentised, real-time operating system which affords the user considerable time-to-market benefits in comparison with Linux. Application development is done in the familiar, productive Visual Studio environment, and rich XAML-based user interface technology incorporates touch and gesture support.
“i.MX6 is proving to be a popular processor choice for connected, intelligent devices, “ said David Pashley, Direct Insight’s MD. “Commercial products, where the development needs to get done quickly, really benefit from the out-of-the-box Windows Embedded experience, and as a Gold Partner we are uniquely equipped to support developers,” he continued.
The TRITON-TXEK evaluation kit costs £130, and the new Compact 7 BSP will be offered to the first 10 customers planning to develop with the OS and kit free of charge. After that, a £495 licence fee will apply.
