Portland, OR (PRWEB) January 4, 2007
EmINENT Microsystems Inc., a leader in Advanced Embedded Technologies, today announced expanded Embedded Systems Framework™ (ESF) support for Windows® CE and XP Embedded® from Microsoft.
The innovative ESF real-time OS abstraction architecture eliminates duplicate engineering efforts currently needed to write code for Windows Embedded systems and intelligent peripheral devices. By enabling the same code to run on both platforms, development costs and time to market are reduced greatly. The same OS abstractions can also run directly as a true micro real-time kernel. Build intelligent peripherals that glue to your main embedded CE or XP CPU via serial channels and flexibly move and cross-compile application components between the main and the peripheral CPU without any #ifdefs in your code. Use efficient, portable ESF protocols to enable reliable port to port communications or virtual network access.
The ESF Signal Base™ toolkit provides a wealth of real time signal processing functions with fixed-point arithmetic options for all algorithms. OS and platform independent data structures and algorithms speed development of a wide range of resource-constrained applications requiring computationally efficient and/or algorithmically sophisticated signal processing. Applications that can benefit include Medical Equipment, Sensor systems, and Industrial Controllers.
"We are very pleased to work with Microsoft in providing customers expanded design flexibility," says Christopher Brown, President of Eminent Microsystems. "Our technologies re-define efficiency for embedded system development."
ESF™ software functions are organized into intuitively and conceptually familiar library hierarchies, so that you can quickly learn the available functions and find the components that you need. The result is a powerful set of building blocks that accelerates application development and maximizes the reuse and cross project leveraging engineering investments.
