WinDriver for Windows CE.NET Drives WDV's New LED Network Plotter

5/20/2004 - Jungo® Software Technologies, Inc.a leading provider of driver development tools, announced that WDV GmbH, a leading European plotter manufacturer, chose WinDriver for Windows CE.NET for developing the driver and hardware access layers for its latest product, the "WDV ARTIST 8800-X".

The ARTIST 8800-X is a high performance LED plotter using the DDC (Dot Density Control) technology, that permits a highly uniform reproduction of shaded areas, images and thinnest plot lines.

The latest design of the WDV ARTIST 8800 plotter is based on a MINI-ATX motherboard (x86) running Windows CE 4.2. The plotter receives plot-data from the Internet using an Ethernet connector or from local sources using a USB connector. The board controlling the engine is a PCI controller based on PLX9054. The USB controller is located on the PCI board using a separate CPU, and the data is being sent via PLX9054 DMA to the x86 processor. WinDriver was used for writing a Windows CE.NET driver for this PCI board which manages the data sent to the engine (setup information and image) and reads the status information received back from the engine.

"My experience with using WinDriver CE for PCI devices was very good, it simplified the whole process of writing the driver and communicating with the hardware. Jungo's support team was very responsive and helpful and we will gladly consider using WinDriver USB for our next possible USB project." Said Peter Tichy, Head of the designing department at WDV.

Jungo's WinDriver automates and simplifies the development of user mode device drivers and applications for USB / PCI / CardBus / ISA / PCMCIA / PMC / PCI-X and CompactPCI under Windows 98/Me/NT/2000/XP/XP Embedded/Server 2003, Windows CE, Linux, Solaris and VxWorks.

"Our goal is to enable our customers and partners to be successful in developing their real world applications", said Ophir Herbst, general manager of Jungo's Software Tools Division. "WDV has joined our wide range of manufacturing customers who elevated and simplifies their driver development process using WinDriver".
