There are plenty of scenarios where you would want to benefit from Windows technologies (in an embedded fashion) on small form factor hardware, such as Digital Signage, Thin Client, Connected TV ... If you are looking for some hardware that will support Windows Embedded Standard, that can do HD video decoding leveraging full hardware acceleration and that would not be bigger than a post-it, then you should take a look at the video below. It is demonstrating a board embedding the new E600 series Atom processor with the GMA600 integrated GPU. Pretty impressive.

Monitoring and optimizing power consumption are frequently important considerations when creating embedded devices. Before he left his role as a Program Manager on the Windows Embedded team for another job, Thomas Yong created a PowerToy to help you understand your device’s power usage that we are releasing today - Power Manager.
Power Manager is a tool designed for Windows Embedded Standard 7 to monitor power management status and to perform battery measurement for battery operated devices.Its primary goal is to ease the battery measurement process by providing automation, data logging, and integration of other power performance analysis tools.
You can download Power Manager,as well as a thorough user guide, at http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/powermgr/.To learn more about our other PowerToys, please check out Package Mapper, Answer File Diff and CBS Package Inspector.
