Kontron supports new embedded Windows versions

3 February 2010 News

On the Intel Atom Day, staged recently in Munich’s Allianz Arena, Kontron demonstrated the latest features of Microsoft Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3, officially published one day earlier, as well as previewing an advance version of Windows Embedded Standard 2011, the successor. The interesting features of Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 include low-resource Internet Explorer Embedded, Silverlight for Embedded implementation, Adobe FlashLite 3.1.0 support, plus innovative touch and gesture support, which leads the way to entirely new interactive and networked x86 applications.

In the upcoming Windows Embedded Standard 2011, which will be based on Windows 7, developers are rewarded with all the performance, familiarity and reliability of a Windows operating system in component form. For manufacturers, it will mean easier design of smart, networked devices with ambitious applications, services and user experience. Windows Embedded Standard will exhibit connectivity with a variety of common industrial standards, enhanced by Microsoft’s desktop and server technologies. This way, developers can save costs in application programming, in producing an operating system, and in servicing and maintenance.

Developers were able to test the new releases on two alternative embedded computer platforms based on the Intel Atom processor: Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 on the Kontron nanoETXexpress-SP computer-on-module, and Windows Embedded Standard 2011 on the 2,5-inch pico-ITX single-board computer Kontron pITX-SP.
