A Windows Embedded Compact 7 version of the QMX6 Qseven module based on the Freescale i.MX6 ARM Cortex A9 processor has been unveiled by German board maker Congatec. Windows Embedded Compact 7 (WEC7) is the latest generation of Windows CE operating systems designed for innovative embedded applications such as those based on the Qseven form factor.

WEC7 provides a 32bit hard real-time operating system with Silverlight support, a customisable user interface, a new multimedia player, Internet Explorer with Flash 10.1 and a powerful development tool. In addition, it provides customised development and design tools for programmers; XAML and C++ can be used.

A ready-to-use WEC7 board support package is provided in partnership with Adeneo for the conga-QMX6 Qseven module with Freescale's i.MX6 ARM Cortex A9 processor. As a result, customers worldwide now benefit from a cost-effective end-to-end solution that accelerates the development of their embedded applications.

Adeneo, a congatec software partner since late 2012, is a member of the Freescale "Design Alliance Program" and an official Freescale partner for Windows Embedded Compact, Android and embedded Linux developments on the i.MX processor architecture.

The conga-QMX6 is equipped with a state-of-the-art 3D-capable high-end HD graphics interface and is ideal for demanding multimedia applications. Target markets include manufacturers of mobile and ultra-mobile industrial devices as well as medical, automotive and industrial automation applications.
