The Windows Embedded Compact 7
WEC7 is a version of Windows 7 completely developed for embedded solutions and the successor of Windows CE 6.
Based on Windows Embedded Compact 7, we offer you extensive experience, for example in programming a multi-touch driver, in customer-specific and standard board support packages ( BSP ), in system integration of firmware as well as in driver development for various processors such as i.MX6, i.MX53, i.MX35, i.MX28, AM335x, OMAP4 and OMAP3.
With the change Microsoft not only changed the name - the CE was dropped - but also launched a new generation of the embedded operating system.
