Windows XP for embedded applications by Advantech

The embedded version of Windows XP is a componentized version of the well-known Windows XP Professional operating system. Instead of everything being wrapped tightly into a single package, XP Embedded breaks the OS down into more than 10,000 individual components, allowing developers to create systems that have the functionality and familiar features of XP.

The embedded version of Windows XP is a componentized version of the well-known Windows XP Professional operating system. Instead of everything being wrapped tightly into a single package, XP Embedded breaks the OS down into more than 10,000 individual components, allowing developers to create systems that have the functionality and familiar features of XP. One of the most attractive features of XP Embedded is that it is much smaller than XP for desktop systems — so small, in fact, that it can fit on a 512 MB CompactFlash

Also of great interest for the embedded system developer are XP Embedded’s choices of boot methods, its wide range of communications options, and the array of tools available for system configuration. XP Embedded uses the same application programming environment as XP, which makes application development quick and easy, and allows the same application to run on desktop and embedded machines. And it has improved code protection for critical kernel structures, file protection and more.
