Windows Embedded Compact 7 Reference BSP for BeagleBoard-xM

Based on the Windows Embedded Compact 7 “unified” BSP developed by Texas Instruments, we ported Windows Embedded Compact 7 into the BeagleBoard-xM.

The BeagleBoard-xM is the new generation board from the BeagleBoard community members. It consist in a low-cost solution based on a Texas Instruments' DM3730 DaVinci™ digital media processor running at 1GHz and has been equipped with a minimum set of features to allow the user to experience the power of the processor. This board is not intended as a full development platform but for engineering development, demonstration or evaluation purposes only.

As this is a low cost BSP meant for educational and/or evaluation/prototyping purposes, the support is free with typical response time of one to five business days. Adeneo Embedded does provide support contracts as additional services for corporations where the cost and support structure is accordingly adjusted.

Our Windows Embedded Compact 7 BSP supports the current BeagleBoard-xM hardware revisions (Rev A2-00 (Micron DDR), Rev A2-01 (Numonyx DDR), Rev A3/Rev B, and Rev C).
