Adeneo Releases Windows Embedded CE 6.0 BSP for NXP LH7A404 ARM9

Adeneo, a Microsoft Windows Embedded Gold Partner with facilities in Europe and in the USA, announced the full commercial release of the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 BSP for NXP Semiconductors LH7A404 ARM9(tm) processor-based microcontroller. The LH7A404 ARM based microcontroller features high-resolution integrated LCD controllers and provides System-on-Chip capability for customers in consumer, entertainment, industrial, medical and automotive industries.

This BSP targets the LH7A404 development kit, a standard development platform from LogicPD. It supports all key features of the LH7A404, including display touchscreen, audio and USB drivers.

A binary evaluation version is available for free, for testing and demonstration purpose. For OEMs willing to perform in depth evaluation and qualification of Adeneo BSP, a free 20 day evaluation of the source code is available under NDA. Adeneo also provides for commercial design the complete source code through an attractive one-time license, without royalties. Free binary evaluation version of the BSP, and the NDA for 20 days access to source code, can be retrieved on Adeneo website.

Yannick CHAMMING’S, General Manager of Windows Embedded activity at Adeneo, and CEO of Adeneo America says, “After the release of the NXP LPC3180 CE 6.0 BSP, and the acquisition of the BlueStreak LH7 processor family by NXP a few months ago, releasing a Windows Embedded CE 6.0 BSP for the LH7A404 shows the close collaboration between Adeneo and NXP to help OEMs with their Windows Embedded CE designs using LPC3000 or LH7 platforms. Beyond the availability of this new reference solution, OEMs can benefit from the expertise of our engineering teams, located both in Europe and North America, through training, consulting or turnkey developments. These services are keys of success for customers willing to secure their embedded design in the best time to market.”

“NXP is pleased to be working with Adeneo to bring Windows Embedded CE 6.0 to market,” said Geoff Lees, vice president and general manager, microcontroller product line, NXP Semiconductors. “Leveraging the successful integration of our BlueStreak microcontroller line, this port gives LH7A404 users access to low-power, cost-effective peripherals including an integrated LCD display with the added benefit of working with an experienced Windows Embedded CE Gold Partner.”

“Microsoft is proud to be working with Adeneo to help OEMs deliver innovative products to market faster,” said Olivier Fontana, group product manager, Worldwide Partner and Regional Marketing, Windows Embedded Business, Microsoft Corp. “Our close collaboration with Adeneo ensures that its BSP solutions incorporate the best, most advanced features that Windows Embedded CE has to offer.”

PQOAL compliance for the easiest adaptation to custom designs – Because of its compliance with Microsoft PQOAL (Production-Quality OEM Adaptation Layer) and PQD (Production Quality Device) specifications, Adeneo BSPs are the most cost-effective way to develop custom solutions on NXP Chips under Windows Embedded CE with the minimal redesign. Only the portions of the BSPs handling board features need to be reviewed and redesigned and all code linked to the core CPU can be reused without modifications.

Fully-featured to cover all customer applications – The BSPs includes the drivers for most of the peripherals integrated in LH7A404 chip, including USB, Display, Audio, Touchscreen. This allows for targeting of all types of custom solutions.
