Toradex WinCE Libraries' Evolution: The New Library Approach Explained


Tuesday, November 8, 2016

WindowsOver 10 years ago, we wrote some small pieces of WinCE code in order to demonstrate different features of our computer on modules (CoM), or system on modules (SoM); for example: GPIOs, I2C, Analog Inputs (ADC), etc. With the pure demo purpose in our minds we didn’t pay attention to things like maintenance, compatibility across different modules, etc. However, these demos were used by a huge Windows Embedded Compact customer base. We received more and more support and feature requests which we then started to integrate into the demo code. As a result, we got the library package for our PXA and Tegra® based SoMs as it exists today.

How to do a low-cost carrier board design - Part 2

Carrier BoardThe development of a carrier board can be divided into 3 main tasks, system design, schematic capture, and layout. In my previous blog post, I have already talked about the system design and the schematic capturing. Here, I would like to give you some insights to the third phase of the design, the layout. I personally enjoy this phase since it requires a lot of imagination and experience. Also in this part, I would like to focus on designing a low-cost carrier board for a Toradex computer module.

Library TOGGLE AN LED AND MORE

Do you remember the good old times of the 8bit microcontrollers? Using a digital IO was one of the simplest tasks you could do – one bit to select the direction and one more bit to set or request the pin level was all you needed to know.
