Atom Atom 5th generation (x5-E3***) support for WEC 7 or 2013

Jump to solution

Hi all,

I looked the specs about Atom 5th generation processors (I was particularly interested in Atom x5-E3930), and found drivers only for Windows 10 or Windows 10 IoT, and there is no mentions to Windows Embedded Compact (WEC) 7 or 2013. Talking with a COM Express module supplier, they said that this generation of Atom does not support WEC 7 or 2013, only Windows 10.

As WEC 7 and 2013 are real-time and Windows 10 and even Windows 10 IoT are not, I wonder if Atom is not targeted at embedded applications anymore.

Does anybody know whether Intel plans to provide support for WEC in Atom 5th generation or above?

Thanks!

Thank you, Allan.

Do you know if there is any processor from the newer Intel generations that does support Windows Embedded Compact?

From the descriptions at Intel website, it seems that newer generations are becoming more intended for devices with media rich capabilities, instead of embedded computing. Is my feeling right?

Thanks!

Jose

Hi,

 

 

I am afraid I do not have official notifications for future operating system support. I understand the processor is operating system independent but there are features that may depend on drivers.

 

I recommend keep on checking https://downloadcenter.intel.com/ https://downloadcenter.intel.com/ and I just hope in the future you will have proper drivers for your operating system.
