Critical Link Announces Windows Embedded Compact Support for its SoM Families

Adeneo completes work on MityDSP-L138(F) and MityARM-1808(F)

SYRACUSE, N.Y., Nov. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Critical Link today announced that Windows Embedded Compact is now available in its MityDSP-L138(F) and MityARM-1808(F) System on Modules (SoMs).  These are the first in a series of Critical Link ARM®-based SoMs that will include Windows Embedded Compact to facilitate development of display and human-machine interaction.  Development of this capability was done by Bellevue, Washington-based Adeneo Embedded, a globally recognized expert on Windows Embedded Compact, Linux and Android technologies.

"Adding Embedded Compact to the list of operating system support for the MityDSP-L138(F) and MityARM-1808(F) will provide our clients with the means to leverage their Windows experience and code base when developing applications on our modules," said Critical Link vice president Tom Catalino. "We view this new capability as especially well-suited for those developing small-form-factor applications with a user interface in the industrial, medical, test and measurement, and alternative energy industries."  The MityDSP-L138(F) board combines an OMAP-L138 DSP + ARM9™ processor from Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) and an optional Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA. The MityARM-1808(F) features TI's Sitara™ AM1808 ARM9 processor, along with an optional FPGA. In addition to Windows Embedded Compact support, these SoMs offer support for QNX, embedded Linux, and ThreadX. These SoMs are part of Critical Link's MityDSP and MityARM families, which offer different combinations of a varied set of TI DSP, TI ARM and Xilinx FPGA processors, supporting a broad range of application processing requirements.  They enable developers to bring their applications to market more quickly and cost-effectively than they could with ground-up development efforts.  "Adeneo Embedded was the logical  - and optimal - choice as a partner for this initiative," Catalino added.

Vijay Raisinghani is the Chief Operating Officer of Adeneo Embedded Americas.  "Critical Link's approach is to offer application developers a wide range of processing options.  With Windows Embedded Compact, they're adding new interface options, as well," he said. "Adeneo Embedded's skills and expertise in Windows Embedded Compact OS complement perfectly Critical Link products, providing an end-to-end solution for OEMs developing complex embedded devices requiring advanced human machine interactions."  Adeneo Embedded will next develop Embedded Compact support for Critical Link's MityARM-335x, which is based on TI's Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex™-A8 processor.

"We are excited to see two of our platinum TI Design Network partners collaborating on this effort," said Tom Kelly, director, TI Design Network.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments.
