bsp support
BSP Support
  • BSPs for Windows Embedded CE 6 lagged behind the OS release
  • Microsoft have worked hard to ensure that Compact 7 has a good selection of BSPs available at the release:
    • Numerous BSPs ‘in the box’
    • Third party BSPs from MPC Data, other leading partners, and silicon vendors
  • Porting a CE 6 BSP to Compact 7 is relatively easy for single-core processors
