Last week, during a presentation session at Embedded World 2014 in Nuremberg, Germany, we provided more details on the upcoming update release of Windows Embedded Compact 2013.
Comments Intelligent Systems
When we launched Windows Embedded Compact 2013 in June 2013, we created an operating system platform well suited for creating small-footprint devices that provide silicon flexibility with real-time capabilities. We also updated the product with the latest tools and technologies by integrating with the latest Visual Studio (at the time, Visual Studio 2012), Compact .Net Framework 3.9 (based on .Net Framework 3.9), and a new compiler with better optimization, networking and cloud capabilities.
Comments Windows Embedded Compact
Since we launched Windows Embedded Compact 2013, one of the key requests we’ve gotten has been around the availability of Wi-Fi drivers for the hardware platforms supported by the operating system. We have exciting news to share: One of our Windows Embedded Compact partners, embWise, recently announced the availability of a WLAN driver, and partner iWave Systems is in the process of making Wi-Fi drivers available soon.

I’ve written before about how server appliances that are used in the industrial automation and manufacturing industries can improve productivity. Today, I have a real-life illustration of just how powerfully effective these systems can be.
Let me explain this with a real-time scenario based on the 800xA system from ABB, a collaboration platform that provides great overview of a plant’s operation. This is achieved by enabling collaboration between enterprise systems, plant systems, desktop applications and plant equipment. The platform improves operations, engineering, control and maintenance, enabling enterprises to do real-time decision making and improve energy efficiency, asset utilization and operational effectiveness.

In my last blog, I covered how Windows Embedded Server-based server appliances are used in the retail industry as in-store servers to generate business intelligence; in this blog, we will see how server appliances are used in the manufacturing industry, specifically in industrial automation, in roles such as historian servers, and application controllers that can improve productivity, asset utilization and operational efficiencies.
With historian server appliances based on the Windows Embedded Server platform, industrial manufacturing plants can gain valuable information by connecting and analyzing historical and ongoing process data generated from the plant. Both archiving and plant-wide accessing in real-time enable rapid decision making based on assured data – producing greater productivity and lower costs, thanks to improved business intelligence. The meaningful consolidation and aggregation of data into valuable information can enable dynamic reporting, such as downtime reports, alarm summaries for maintenance purposes, consumption data and energy balances, and efficiency reports of the different production lines. Combined with Microsoft SQL Server, database management systems provide a reliable and protected database platform for historian server appliances.
