January 25, 2013 // By Nick Flaherty
Toradex in Switzerland has ported Microsoft's Windows Embedded Compact 7 operating system to its latest Colibri T30 NVIDIA Tegra 3-based ARM computer-on-module (COM) family.

A beta release of Colibri T30 Windows Embedded Compact 7 Board Support Packages (BSPs) will be available for download from www.developer.toradex.com by the end of February 2013.
The Colibri T30 is a SODIMM sized computer module based on the NVIDIA Tegra 3 embedded system-on-a-chip. The Cortex A9 quad core CPU peaks at 1.4 GHz. The module incorporates DVFS (Dynamic Voltage and Frequency Switching) and Thermal Throttling which enables the system to continuously adjust operation frequency and voltage in response to changes in workload and temperature to get the best performance with the lowest power.
The module targets a wide range of applications, including Digital Signage, Medical Devices, Navigation, Industrial Automation, HMIs, Avionics, Entertainment System, POS, Data Acquisition, Thin Clients, Robotics and Gaming.
Toradex board support packages (BSPs) include a large number of additional drivers as well as optimized versions of standard drivers. They are are designed to be extensively configurable. Any desired adaptations to the bootloader and operating system can be made via the registry settings and adding files to the on-board flash file system.
The Colibri ARM-based low-power computer-on-module family is deployed in hundreds of applications across a wide range of different markets. The Colibri product line differentiates itself from other competitor products by providing a mature, feature rich and complete hardware and software platform, around which product ideas can be quickly built.
