Unleash the power of Windows 8 on your embedded device with Windows Embedded Standard 8

12 03 2012

Certainly, Windows 8 is not even available, but now is the time to have a look at the embedded version of this coming Windows release.
Windows 8 delivers a whole bunch of new features that are well suited to build innovative next generation embedded devices.  
In addition, the Windows Embedded team has created quite a few new features on their own.

From my perspective the most prominent are:

  • Multi-touch at a new level (can you say kiosk system? Smile)
  • Metro applications
  • New, sophisticated power management
  • Connectivity at low power states
  • New componentization model to create a clean, consistent build system
  • New embedded lockdown tools and a Unified Write Filter
  • Built-in, generic sensor and device support
  • and many more…..

Just go to:
to download the CTP and get started!
The ramp up is quite easy, because the basic build process has not changed significantly. Enjoy the new features!
