Bellevue, Wash. -- The Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2 Board Support Package (BSP) for Freescale's i.MX27 Product Development Kit (PDK) ARM9 processor-based micro-controller has been released by Adeneo Embedded. This BSP targets the i.MX27 PDK, a standard development platform from Freescale. It supports key features of the i.MX27 PDK
The i.MX27 PDK's integrated modular design is engineered to enable a more efficient development process - a critical benefit for accelerating hardware and software integration. The PDK simplifies development with three separate, reusable modules that work together for streamlined software creation.
The i.MX27 PDK features a CPU module, which is a single board computer containing the i.MX27 processor based on the powerful ARM-9 core, memories, and Freescale's MC13783 power management IC.
The PDK also includes a personality module, which is a peripherals board that engineered to manage advanced end-product functionality such as touch screen capabilities, Ethernet, and USB.
A debug module consists of a common interface board designed for virtually all existing and future PDKs. The module contains the functions necessary for software and applications development, such as serial, Ethernet, and JTAG interface.
The source code of this BSP is available to customers on the Freescale website www.freescale.com/imx27pdk and from Adeneo Embedded website (www.adeneo-embedded.com). Customers downloading the free BSP from the Freescale website will need to submit a request for validation.
Because of its compliance with Microsoft PQOAL (Production-Quality OEM Adaptation Layer) and PQD (Production Quality Device) specifications, Adeneo Embedded BSPs are a cost-effective way to develop custom solutions on Freescale Chips under Windows Embedded CE with 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.
The BSPs includes the drivers for most of the peripherals integrated in i.MX27 PDK, such as USB, Display, Audio, Touch screen, Ethernet, etc. This allows for targeting of virtually all types of custom solutions.
Adeneo Embedded BSPs are qualified using the Windows Embedded CE official test kit, and have been designed to take full advantage of the advanced features of the i.MX27 PDK such as Multimedia and Communications performance.
