Adeneo provides Windows Embedded CE 6.0 drivers for TI’s WiLink 6.0

  • September 07, 2010

September 7, 2010 - Adeneo Embedded announced its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology drivers for the WiLink 6.0 single-chip solution (WL1271) from Texas Instruments which support Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3. The customizable, combined solution makes the design of reliable, high-performance wireless communications on the Windows Embedded CE operating system more efficient. The WiLink 6.0 solution is a single-chip, wireless combo chipset encompassing all digital and analog content required for WLAN and Bluetooth technology communications. Adeneo Embedded initially developed the Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R3 drivers on TI’s OMAP35x evaluation module (EVM) leveraging the OMAP35x applications processor. The technical design of the drivers will enable the Adeneo Embedded products to extend to future OMAP platforms. Adeneo Embedded is also working aggressively with TI to establish similar catalog drivers for mass market support, ensuring quicker delivery to customers not requiring heavy customization. The Adeneo Embedded drivers are compliant with Microsoft’s Production Quality Device (PQD) specifications. This helps OEMs focus on adapting only specific, necessary portions of code via the embedded drivers. As a result of this PQD compliance, integration of TI’s WiLink 6.0 solution is cost-effective and efficient in both customized and standard designs. Driver Highlights

  • Microsoft PQD compliance saves customers time and money by clearly separating chipset- and board-dependent features
  • Only portions of the drivers related to board interfaces need to be reviewed and redesigned
  • All code linked to the core chipset can be reused without modifications
  • Drivers are qualified via Windows Embedded CE Test Kit (CETK)
  • Enabled Features
  • Full featured evaluation version of the Adeneo Embedded Bluetooth Manager, delivering enhanced communication management with support for local and remote Bluetooth profiles.
  • Range-extended mobile WLAN and Bluetooth technology
  • Supports Bluetooth v2.1 + EDR specifications
  • Supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n capabilities
  • Sophisticated ELP low-power technology with on-chip processing optimizations for extended battery life
  • AvailabilityAdeneo Embedded drivers are available today as a free source code download on the Adeneo Embedded Web site, and will be available via a corresponding TI wiki in late 2010. Customers can register on the Adeneo Embedded Web site to request source code access and exclusive discounts on related support, training and engineering services. The Embedded Bluetooth Manager is available from Adeneo Embedded.
