W2 Ports Windows XP Embedded to DIGITAL-LOGIC's Boards and Modules

9/27/2004 - DIGITAL-LOGIC AG, Luterbach/Switzerland, and Entwicklungsgesellschaft für wire and wireless Technologien mbH & Co. KG (short: w2), Berlin, have contracted a partnership. w2 supports DIGITAL-LOGIC and its customers in using and porting Windows XP embedded. For the MICROSPACE®-PC family by DIGITAL-LOGIC w2 has exemplified the porting of Windows XP embedded.

The experiences can also be applied to boards and modules (PC/104-Plus, EBX and smartModule). By creating a basic Windows XP embedded image DIGITAL-LOGIC´s customers gain quick and comfortable access to develop embedded and real-time applications under Windows XP embedded. Therefore existing Windows XP/2000 drivers and applications in the area of Windows XP embedded can be put into operation very easily and rapidly.

A minimal system, e.g. to use hard disks and graphic cards as well as a mouse, requires less than 60Mbyte memory (excluding application). All applications may run from a flash memory without hard disk.

The partnership includes the adaption of Windows XP embedded to DIGITAL-LOGIC specific hardware, the support of all board specific functions and the long-term support of DIGITAL-LOGIC customers as well as end customer support by w2 not only for Windows XP embedded.

"With its products DIGITAL-LOGIC offers an interesting hardware platform for customers in all sectors”, explained Ralf Skiba, Managing Director of w2. "With our experience of many years concerning embedded systems and Windows developments we will further intensify our cooperation with DIGITAL-LOGIC in the future.”

Within the next decade Pentium M will chiefly dominate x86-based embedded applications. With products based on the smartModule855 (concept by DIGITAL-LOGIC) most applications are covered.

“With w2 we have won a competent supplier for Windows XP embedded solution as our partner. The access via a standard image as well as the extensive support in development by the experienced w2 team gives our customers an optimized support for new, Windows XP embedded based product solutions”, said Andreas Geh, Key Account Manager with DIGITAL-LOGIC.
