Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3/Compact 7

Windows CE6.0/R3 or Windows Embedded Compact 7 offers Bootloader, interface drivers and kernel (with e.g. Silverlight, Mediaplayer or IE). Interface drivers for almost every offered interface are ready to use (an access code for this software is shipped with the starter kit). Hard work with PlatformBuilder is unnecessary, since we already did that. Create your software with Visual Studio .NET (not shipped with the starterkit) in C, C++, C# or VB.NET. Use interfaces like I²C in the same way like a RS232 interface, without having to handle the underlying hardware. Configure the display and other settings with the F&S configuration tool. This is software development at its easiest.

Our FailSafe Flash File System F3S is also available for WCE 6.0 and in Compact 7.

Description Interfaces

Especially for TFT

The latest member of the PicoMOD family fits especially in applications where a TFT with XGA/WXGA resolution has to be controlled or where videos up to 1080p have to be played.

Wide Range of Applications

Many new developments in medicine and industry require a high CPU performance with 2D/3D acceleration and layering technique. Examples for devices in medical engineering are X-ray-, therapy-, microscopy-, respiration-, LASER-, dental-, high frequency surgery- and depilation applications. Industrial applications are for example: MMI, POI, building automation, professional coffee machines, ovens and smokers, access control, time control, analyzers, vending machines, gambling machines, advertisement panels, data log and VoiceOverIP systems.

For all MMIs with a display (QVGA/ XGA/ WXGA), controlling elements (resistive/ capacitive touch, keypad, control knob) and communication interfaces (Ethernet, USB, CAN, Serial, Audio, I²C, SPI, I/ O), the PicoMOD7 or another member of the PicoMOD product family fits. Of course, PicoMOD7A is pin compatible to PicoMOD3/4/ 6 and 7.


Fully Equipped

The core of PicoMOD7A is a Samsung Cortex-A8 CPU with 1GHz.

Special features of this processor are the video performance (MPEG4/ H264 Decoder 1080p, 2D/ 3D, 5 Window Layer), PowerVR SGX540 and the FPU.

The PicoMOD7A offers 128MB (1GB opt.) Flash, 256/ 512MB DDR2 RAM and signals for 3x serial, 2x USB, I²C, SPI, I/ O, Audio, CAN, Ethernet and SD Card signals, as well as a touch controller (4-wire resistive). 

All common capacitive touch controllers can be connected via I²C. Plus, the PicoMOD7A comes with a flexible display interface, which is typical for F&S.

All common TFT displays from 320 x 240 up to 1280 x 80 (WXGA) can be controlled. The RGB version of PicoMOD7A has a RGB interface, the LVDS version comes with a 1-channel LVDS interface (6Bit and 8Bit). For the connection of your display we have display drivers available. To create your own display cables and adapters, we offer a pin assignment table for RGB and LVDS. 

PicoMOD7A is supplied with 3.3V, the consumption power is lower than 3W. A robust 140-pol plug connectors plugs PicoMOD7A on the customer's application base board.
