PHYTEC Releases phyCORE-i.MX31 SBC with Adeneo Embedded CE 6.0 BSP

PHYTEC announces the release of its new phyCORE®-i.MX31 Single Board Computer (SBC) subassembly. The phyCORE-i.MX31 is an ARM-11 based, small form factor, OEMable module populated with the Freescale i.MX31: a high performance multimedia applications processor. Graphics acceleration, state-of-the-art power management, Floating Point Unit, and rich peripherals such as Ethernet, High Speed USB, and integrated LCD controller make this module the ideal candidate for Windows® Embedded CE device applications.

The phyCORE-i.MX31 is available in a kit that offers a true rapid development solution by providing all the necessary ingredients to jump start embedded design. The phyCORE-i.MX31 Rapid Development Kit includes the module and carrier board, 3.5″ color LCD with integrated touch, Windows Embedded CE 6.0 OS demo image, and all the contents required to enable users to successfully set-up target hardware and build and load a Windows Embedded CE binary image with Platform Builder. The Windows Embedded CE BSP source code is available from Adeneo, a Windows Embedded gold partner of Microsoft which focus on providing strong expertise’s such as consulting, training or engineering services to OEMs.

The customers positive out-of-box experience with PHYTEC kits, underscores the relative ease of implementing Windows Embedded CE on actual target hardware. Combined, PHYTEC and Adeneo offer a robust solution and the key starting points for OEMs needing to have a complete Windows Embedded CE solution up and running under very short development time constraints.

Thomas L. Walker, Director of PHYTEC America, commented, “Our module supports engineers in every stage of embedded design: from evaluation, through development and prototyping, to OEM deployment. By offering a production-ready Windows Embedded CE operating system BSP, we further increase the value of PHYTEC’s off-shelf solution to OEM users.”

Yannick CHAMMING’S, General Manager of Windows Embedded activity at Adeneo, and CEO of Adeneo America, comments: “The combination of PHYTEC’s strong skills in providing reliable off the shelf embedded modules with Adeneo expertise on integration of Windows Embedded CE into customer designs brings a unique complete answer to OEM willing to secure the availability of their design with the best time to market. With engineering centers located both in North America and Europe, we provide a local expertise to our customers.”
