    Component Tales: Windows Embedded Standard 2009 Power Management

    Why is there a need for a special embedded power management in Windows Embedded Standard 2009? Does it behave differently than the desktop OS? These are valid questions about a small, but powerful component that can be found in the Systems\Management\Applications node of the Component Catalog.

    Component Tales: A Window to a Remote Embedded Device –Terminal Services

    In its disguise as “Remote Desktop” most computer users probably already have been in contact with Terminal Services. The name “Remote Desktop” describes the technology quite well, namely a desktop experience to a remote device.

    When thinking of embedded usage scenarios for Terminal Services, device management and maintenance come to mind, of course, especially l if the device is headless and therefore hard to handle without a user interface. In addition, Terminal Services can save the development effort to provide , for example, a web-based configuration user interface. The user rights on the device can easily be managed locally or in an Active Directory domain in the same granular fashion one is used from a normal desktop system.

    Component Tales: Safe and Reliable Communication using Message Queuing

    Embedded devices must be reliable and robust! While this can be achieved with reasonable effort on the device itself, e.g. using the Embedded Enabling Features (EEFs), such as Enhanced Write Filter, on Windows Embedded Standard, a weak spot generally is the communication of systems, for example with a backend infrastructure. This is especially true if the devices are distributed in the field or are mobile, and experience unreliable network connections. Some devices are equipped with different network access technologies such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, WiMax, UMTS, GPRS, etc. and switch to the available network transport as required, but this does not solve the problem from an application perspective.

    Component Tales: 10 Cool Uses for Group Policies on Windows Embedded Standard

    In some of my recent posts I have already shed some light on enterprise infrastructure components such as ADSI, WMI or COM+ Services. Another member of this family is Group Policies. As part of the Windows security system it provides a granular means to configure user-, system- and domain-wide functionality, which can also be synchronized via Active Directory if needed.

    There are projects where the purpose of a tiny embedded device is to work robustly as a standalone unit and there are times when embedded devices are required to participate in sophisticated enterprise scenarios. Examples that fall into the latter category could be automation controllers or thin clients. Naturally, these types of devices have very different specifications for both their hardware and software. It is quite surprising that, despite this, a single embedded operating system such as Windows Embedded Standard is able to be a good fit for both use cases, as opposite as they are.

    There have been a lot of posts on how to build smaller devices and now it is time to shed some light on the enterprise features of Embedded Standard.
