Embedded device makers will also have the opportunity to utilize BSQUARE’s products such as its DevKit reference design family or SDIO Hx Architecture. BSQUARE also distributes Microsoft’s complete line of Windows Embedded operating systems in North America.

“We are excited to expand the NXT Initiative into the embedded space by including BSQUARE as an NXT delivery partner,” said Greg Urquhart, General Manager, ISV Partners at Microsoft Corporation. “BSQUARE will provide qualified embedded device makers access to NXT benefits, and enhance the migration process to Windows Embedded with important engineering services as well as training, products and support.”
