Microsoft Windows Embedded now for free with ARM9

Atmel Offers Free Microsoft Windows Embedded BSPs for AT91SAM9 Embedded MPUs


A BSP is a set of software that implements and supports an operating system on a development board. It consists of a boot loader, adaptation layer for the specific hardware architecture, device drivers, and run-time image configuration files. It greatly simplifies application development on the target device, by creating a hardware-independent interface for use by the application code. It also enables application code to be rapidly ported from one hardware platform to another.

The Web site http://www.at91.com/windows4sam provides, in addition to download facilities for the BSPs sources, an extensive set of documents, including a ready-to-run demonstration, explaining how to use and customize the sources and how to build up applications by using the BSPs. These provide the tools that customers need to work on Atmel's ARM9™-based products with Microsoft's embedded technologies.

The first five supported products are the AT91RM9200, AT91SAM9260, AT91SAM9261, AT92SAM9263 and AT91SAM9G20 embedded MCUs. The BSP for the AT91SAM9RL64 will be added within the coming months, and will be followed by the BSPs for the next devices in the AT91SAM9 product family as they become available.
