Windows Embedded Compact 2013 BSP Support for NXP i.MX7 series processor
iWave Systems, eminently known worldwide for NXP i.MX based solutions, has brought up the WEC2013 (Windows Embedded Compact 2013) on NXP i.MX7 series processor, providing support for WEC2013 reference Board Support Package (BSP) for NXP’s i.MX7D SDP board. With this expertise, iWave has proved that it can support WEC2013 BSP on any i.MX7x based custom boards.
The i.MX7 series is a highly integrated multi-market applications processor designed to enable secure and portable applications within the Internet of Things. The i.MX7 series is the first device in the market utilizing both the ARM® Cortex®-A7 and Cortex-M4 cores for general purpose programmable processing.
Windows Embedded Compact 2013 is a streamlined, componentized device operating system. With support for x86 and ARM architectures, Windows Embedded Compact 2013 provides the flexibility and real-time support to help device manufacturers reduce time to market while creating easy-to-use, multi-touch intelligent systems that help enterprises improve worker productivity.
Windows Embedded Compact 2013 on NXP i.MX7x Platform:
Windows Embedded Compact 2013 provides many new features, such as including support for the latest version of Visual Studio, networking stack improvements, and XAML improvements. This latest version of Visual Studio 2012 includes new arm compiler and latest C Run time libraries.
With the latest Windows Embedded Compact 2013 OS, the BSP and environment will have the following improvements:
