PHYTEC announced Windows Embedded Compact 7 support for the phyCORE-AM3517 System on Module (SOM). PHYTEC is an industry leading supplier of production-ready System on Modules and a Windows Embedded Gold Partner.

The phyCORE-AM3517 supports Texas Instruments’ AM3517 and AM3505 high-performance, industrial applications processors based on cutting-edge ARM Cortex A8 technology. Windows Embedded Compact 7 is a componentized, real-time operating system that delivers the rich application experiences of Microsoft Silverlight and provides seamless connections to Windows 7-based PCs, servers and online services. Silverlight significantly simplifies the design of innovative UIs on Windows Embedded Compact 7-based devices.

In addition to Silverlight, Compact 7 also includes the following new features:

  •      Internet Explorer Embedded with Integrated Flash 10.1
  •      Touch, multi-touch and gesture
  •      Connection Manager & Windows Device Stage
  •      Microsoft Office and PDF viewers
  •      QQ Messenger

The phyCORE-AM3517 Compact 7 Development Kit includes the SOM, a Carrier Board, optional LCD, and all accessories required for immediate start-up. A Compact 7 runtime image comes pre-installed on the SOM. Product developers with aggressive timelines or limited resources can also leverage PHYTEC's full range of design services, which include embedded hardware design and operating system adaptations.

PHYTEC SOMs provide a core foundation so customers do not have to develop their embedded application from the ground up. Designing in a SOM reduces the complexity and scope of product developments, allowing OEMs to significantly reduce cost, time-to-market and design risk.

"The new features in Compact 7 take development of user interfaces to the next level." said Josie Adams, Director of Product Development at PHYTEC America. "Our Compact 7 support, combined with our AM3517 SOM, is the ideal solution for OEMs that need to have a complete application up and running fast."
