Adeneo Embedded releases BeagleBone Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP for Community

Leveraging the latest “Unified BSP” for Texas Instruments (TI) CortexTM-A8 MPUs,
Adeneo Embedded supports the BeagleBone community with Windows Embedded Compact 7

Ecully, France and Bellevue, WA, June 5, 2012 - Adeneo Embedded, a platinum member of the Texas Instruments Design Network, and a Microsoft Windows Embedded Gold Partner and recipient of the “Windows Embedded Excellence Award” from 2007 through 2011, announces the availability of Windows Embedded Compact 7 reference board support packages (BSPs), along with a full suite of support services, including customized support, training and development services, for the SitaraTM AM335x ARM® CortexTM-A8 processor-based community board, the BeagleBone.

BeagleBone is  a low-cost, high-expansion board that can either works stand-alone or acts as a USB or Ethernet connected expansion companion for BeagleBoard and BeagleBoard-xM boards, based on 720MHz SitaraTM MPU AM3359 with 256MB DDR2 memory.

BeagleBone BSP developed by Adeneo Embedded is based on the latest version of the Texas Instruments “unified BSP” for Windows Embedded Compact 7 which supports TI ARM® CortexTM-A8 devices, including OMAP35x, AM335x, AM35x, AM37x, AM387x SitaraTM ARM® MPUs and DaVinci DM37x and DM816x video processors. Through a strategic collaboration between TI and Adeneo Embedded, this unified BSP is available from Adeneo Embedded website since February 2012.

Windows Embedded Compact 7 provides developers, designers and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with a powerful real-time OS and a full suite of development tools, enabling an integrated, streamlined development experience to speed devices to market.

The Sitara AM335x platform used on the BeagleBone is a cost and performance optimized solution targeting portable, pocket-sized applications. Starting at $5 and consuming as low as 7 mW of power, the AM335x ARM® CortexTM-A8 processors provide low power consumption while prolonging battery life and reducing heat emissions. Developers have access to a high performance processor with advanced 3D graphics capabilities, touch screen controller and sophisticated peripherals all on a single chip.

"Releasing this new BSP for the BeagleBone community board highlights our commitment to Texas Instruments and Microsoft to support OEMs from early prototyping to shipment of their devices," said Yannick Chammings, chief executive officer, Adeneo Embedded. "Our ‘community board’ strategy was initiated with the release of Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP for BeagleBoard xM. With the availability of the BSP for BeagleBone, customers can now evaluate Windows Embedded Compact 7 on the whole scope of development platforms available for TI MPUs, covering prototyping, early evaluation, as well as industrial development stages.

“Texas Instruments is excited to have Adeneo Embedded's support of the BeagleBoard community with a BeagleBone-based Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP,” said Thomas Kelly, director, TI’s Design Network. “The combination of BeagleBone and Windows Embedded Compact will ease the development of new innovative intelligent embedded systems for community members and OEMs alike,”

Adeneo Embedded’s support for the Windows Embedded Compact platform on the BeagleBone community board opens new opportunities for better innovation across the device development cycle, giving customers greater ability to create optimized devices to power intelligent systems for the enterprise,” said Lorraine Bardeen, marketing director for Windows Embedded EMEA at Microsoft.

OEMs interested in using these technologies for their devices can discuss further support options available by contacting our sales team at Windows Embedded Compact 7 reference BSP for BeagleBone is available on Adeneo Embedded website:
