Engineers at AMD in Austin, Texas, are porting the Windows CE embedded operating system to their Elan SC400 microcontroller for a wide variety of embedded applications. The Elan SC400 combines AMD`s 486 core with mobile application-specific peripherals into a single-chip PC/AT compatible microcontroller for mobile processing with ultra-low power consumption. Windows CE is a streamlined version of the popular Windows operating system that is intended for palmtop computers and embedded applications where space and memory capacity are limited. The microcontroller integrates serial port, parallel port, real-time clock, dual PC card controller, and matrix keyboard controller. - J.K.
