What is Windows Embedded Compact 2013? It is just the latest, and of course greatest, version of Microsoft’s Windows Embedded Compact componentized OS, formerly known as Windows CE. Did you know that Microsoft has been in the embedded space with this operating system for over 15 years? In that time, this little OS has evolved from one target category--small handheld devices--to a general-purpose embedded system that powers everything from tiny controls, to retail POS terminals, to the automation of high-end manufacturing. Windows Embedded Compact continues to differentiate itself within Microsoft, and within the larger ecosystem, as an operating system targeting small-footprint devices that need real-time performance and silicon flexibility.
