Arcom, a Gold level Windows Embedded Partner, has released updated Development Kits for two embedded single board computers - the ultra-low power 400MHz PXA255 XScale based VIPER and the AMD Geode based SBC-GX1.
These development kits can save months of engineering time and BSP integration effort by offering Windows CE 5.0 on a ready-to-run platform. The kits include the VIPER or SBC-GX1 pre-installed with Windows CE 5.0 on the resident Flash drive as well as the Microsoft eMbedded Visual tools to allow you to start building an application from day one.



Windows CE is the most popular embedded operating system for engineers creating a user interface for new OEM instrumentation displays, machine controllers and information terminals. The combination of rich communications and GUI features along with an aggressive license cost policy make it a very popular choice for equipment manufacturers.



The VIPER Development Kit includes the VIPER PC/104 board fitted with 64Mbytes DRAM and 32Mbytes of Flash memory, an industrial compact enclosure (ICE) with a Q-VGA color touchscreen display. The Development Kit is also shipped with a free CompactFlash Wi-Fi card allowing complete wireless operation. The 300MHz SBC-GX1 EBX board is fitted with 256Mbytes DRAM and 16Mbytes of onboard Flash, along with a 6.5” VGA TFT touchscreen display.
