Mistral Solutions’ Accelerator Program for Windows(R) Embedded CE 6.0 is designed for use with Texas Instruments Incorporated’s (TI) DaVinci(TM) technology. The Accelerator Program for Windows Embedded CE 6.0 is a complete Software Development Kit (SDK) for TI’s TMS320DM6446 Digital Video Evaluation Module (DVEVM) based on DaVinci technology. Mistral’s BSP enables customers of DaVinci technology to prototype their software on the DVEVM board before implementing their products.
DaVinci technology and the Windows Embedded CE development environment are both optimal choices for applications such as set-top boxes, digital media adapters, voice-over-IP (VoIP) phones, navigation systems and portable media players. Mistral’s latest offering empowers product developers to blend the high performance of DaVinci technology with the versatility of the Windows Embedded CE development environment in creating innovative products with shorter development cycles and faster time to market.
Mistral’s Accelerator Program includes drivers for all the DVEVM peripherals along with a Production-Quality OEM Adaptation Layer (PQOAL). It also supports TI components such as DSP/BIOS Link and the Codec Engine. The Codec Engine APIs have been wrapped into Microsoft(R) DirectShow(R) multimedia framework for seamless integration into Windows(R) Embedded CE applications. This integration allows customers to implement advanced features such as “Windows Network Projector” and “Network Media Device.”
