embWiSe Ports SDIOWorx Package to Microsoft’s Windows CE 6.0

embWiSe Technologies, the only third party vendor to offer SDIO stacks on different embedded OS platforms, had announced support for its SDIOWorx package on Microsoft’s Windows CE OS. Riding on the decent success of its SDIOWorx package with SDIO-WiFi support on popular embedded OS platform, embWiSe had developed and ported its SDIOWorx package on Microsoft’s Windows CE 6.0 as well. embWiSe is also supporting SDIO-WiFi drivers for leading WLAN chipsets with SDIOWorx for WinCE. embWiSe plan to target multimedia applications like the fast growing PMP/ Video Surveillance Camera, Portable Navigation Devices market as well as industrial control and Medical Devices.

“Our SDIOWorx stack has been high performing and offers the best throughput under all OS platforms and the Windows CE version is no different. We are achieving a throughput of 18Mbps with an SDIO-WiFi device under Windows CE 6.0 on OMAP3 platform in open-air test environment. We understand that we are late in the market with this offering – however the high performance throughput and ease of integration should interest device designers in the connected device space” said G.Srinivasan Director of Business Development at embWiSe.

“SDIOWorx for WinCE is future ready that can truly harness the potential of newer wireless technologies like 802.11n in throughput intensive applications – for example HD Video Streaming – in the Mobile and CE devices market. A set of APIs that would be compatible with Microsoft’s native SDIO drivers in WinCE OS will be provided as part of the package to ensure compatibility with existing devices and chipsets as well,” said Alagu Sankar, Director-Technical at embWiSe.

embWiSe currently supports SDIOWorx under WinCE 6.0 on Marvell’s PXA270 and TI’s OMAP3530 processor platforms with more processor support on the anvil.For more information on SDIOWorx under Windows CE, visit: www.embwise.com/SDIOWorx_WinCE.pdf

embWiSe also undertakes development, porting and integration of the SPI-WiFi and SDIO-WiFi package for any other specific Host Processor/OS Platforms/WLAN chipset through an NRE services model.
