PHYTEC is a full solution provider for the implementation of Windows Embedded. Windows Embedded extends the power of Windows to embedded systems. Windows Embedded CE and Compact 7 are componentized, real-time operating systems that deliver rich application experiences for Microsoft Silverlight and seamless connections to Windows 7-based PCs, servers and online services. PHYTEC offers a rich set of integrated software components packaged in an easy-to-use development environment for board-level driver and application development.
Our Windows Embedded kits include a Windows Embedded evaluation version. It includes VisualStudio and Platform Builder. The latter is an integrated development environment (IDE) for managing catalog items such as drivers, Windows DLLs and other functional components. Once a catalog has been compiled, a binary BSP is generated.
Platform Builder simplifies changes to the composition of elements of the binary BSP. Even custom drivers can be added. Platform builder can also establish a connection to customer hardware in order to transmit and test the BSP. KITL is used on a driver-level. Active Sync is used for debugging on an application-level. It is not included in the kit.
