Arcom Achieves Windows CE .NET BSP Certification for Geode Based Single Board Computer

11/4/2002 - Arcom, a Microsoft Gold level Windows Embedded Partner, has successfully passed the Microsoft BSP (board support package) Certification Process for Windows CE .NET on its 300MHz Geode based SBC-GX1 single board computer. The SBC-GX1 is a fan-less, low profile EBX format processor board targeted at embedded control and multimedia applications.

The BSP Certification Process is designed to ensure compatibility between the vast array of functionality offered by Microsoft’s Windows CE .NET embedded operating system and the products produced by the Independent Hardware Vendors such as Arcom. Certified BSPs are promoted and supported by Microsoft through the Windows CE Hardware Design Center and the Platform Builder Integrated Development Environment tools.

Platform Builder lets you create a tailored Windows CE .NET image to suit your exact requirements. You can quickly include additional technology components from Platform Builders extensive catalogue, or simply reduce the footprint size by just specifying a minimal list of features.

Arcom include a fully featured Windows CE .NET image on its range of ready-to-run single board computer Development Kits. The BSP and an evaluation version of Platform Builder are available on request when you purchase the SBC-GX1 Windows CE .NET Development Kit.

"The Certification of Arcom’s board support package is a clear demonstration of their commitment to the integration and development of Windows CE .NET based solutions. Arcom’s Windows Embedded Development Team has demonstrated a high level of technical excellence in supporting and developing hardware/software integration and developing customer solutions” said Doug Follett, Microsoft Business Manager for the Embedded Systems Group.
