Applied Data Systems Announces Availability of Windows CE .NET on its Graphics Master: "Smart Device" Connectivity on USB System
Columbia, Maryland, July 15, 2002 - Applied Data Systems (ADS), a Windows Embedded Partner Gold-level member and leading developer of embedded RISC-based application-ready systems, now has the Microsoft Windows CE .NET operating system available on ADS' Graphics Master system. Windows CE .NET provides seamless integration into wireless connectivity, Web Services and .NET enterprise solutions. The Graphics Master system can act as a USB client or host and supports a wide range of communications protocols allowing customers to fully utilize the robust set of features found in Windows CE .NET.
Windows CE .NET is ideal for low-power and mobile applications, and Windows CE 3.0 developers will find the upgrade to Windows CE .NET to be smooth and straightforward. The current Graphics Master boot ROM already supports Windows CE .NET, so current devices can be easily upgraded to the latest version by engineers in the field with minimal down-time or support.
Microsoft introduced Windows CE. NET in January 2002 and ADS now has one of the first RISC-based Windows CE .NET combination platforms available. Windows CE .NET on the Graphics Master is now shipping and is the same price range as Windows CE 3.0.
"We are very proud to provide the products that will enable our customers to be at the peak of the technology curve," said Robert Olsen, CEO of Applied Data. "Having Windows CE .NET on the Graphics Master provides developers with a powerful platform for creating next generation Internet and wireless applications."
"Embedded developers need all-in-one systems like the Graphics Master to help jump-start the development cycle," said Keith White, senior director of the embedded and appliance platforms group at Microsoft Corp. "With the addition of support for Windows CE .NET to the Graphics Master system, users can now include industry-leading multimedia and browsing functionality in their next-generation, smart, mobile devices."
