Atom Quad-Core E3845 Bay Trail SoC and WES2009 possible?

    Question

  • Hi All,

    I have a few tens  Industrial Touchpanels(Advantech LPC-1003) out at the customer.
    They used Intel® Atom™ N270 1.6GHz and Intel® 945GSE/ ICH7-M
    and worked fine under XPe/WES2009

    Now we ordered a successor(LPC-1009) and noticed that it seems that Intel has already cut the
    support for XP-generation OS. (We already planned to migrate to WES7 in the near future...)
    Unfortunately I have not noticed this fact.

    But now I am a little bit in cold water (first batch of new hardware arrives soon and shall be at customer in a few weeks..)
    => Is there any way to run Atom Quad-Core E3845  Bay Trail SoC   under WES2009?
    (Eventually with some limitations like not maximum screen resolution etc.)

    It seems that there is no other way as to migrate to WES7 (Already a few standard book titles on the shelf but unread..),
    which is especially painfull if we need to deliver spate parts for broken hardware(we wanted to
    leave this still under WES2009 and deliver only new systems under WES7)

    Thx a lot for any help and suggestion,

         Marcovaldo

  • WES2009 can on the platform. The issue is the driver support.

    Maybe the EMGD driver might resolve the graphics driver: http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/embedded/software/emgd/embedded-media-and-graphics-drivers-overview.html

  • Hi  Sean,

    Thx very much for the quick answer!

    (The WES Wizard helps the 'opposite of early bird'; However in the industry many refuse to fix anything
    as long it works(somehow))

    I was unsecure if there are other things (beside drivers), now I have gained a little confidence again
    which pathway to go down(I already saw that on your pages there is something around Atoms but I supposed this to be much earlier releases). I will take a closer look at the EMGD.

    Kind Greetings,

           Marcovaldo

  • I just finished a WES7 project with the E3845. The only thing to do is to just try an install of WES2009, and see what is supported and what is not. There will be some drivers not available like LPSS.

  • Hi Marcovaldo - did you ever get an answer to this.  We too have industrial panels out at the customer that are N270 / XP based and are having to replace them with E3845 monitors. 

    Did you get WES2009 / XP to run with Ethernet controllers etc. functional?

    Thanks for your help!

  • Hi WheezyDragon!

    At some point I gave up. Either it was the screen driver or the LAN driver which I never got working...
    (Cannot remember at the moment...

    Sean Liming is the absolute Top notch of information source on all this stuff.
    Got all his books on this theme. Strongly recommended!

    I stepped up to WES7 with that systems which also brought a stepup in CF card (8G instead of 2G)

    Kind Regards,
    Marcovaldo

  • I must been distracted on the follow-up. I think the issue was that the video driver was not available for the WES2009/XP Embedded. At the moment, WES2009 is EOL are close to EOL, and most OEMs are moving to newer Windows offering. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise is the latest and recommended. There is a 32-bit video driver support available in the Intel BSP. I have an example package for the MinnowBoard Max on my company page: http://annabooks.com/SW_Intel_Atom.html
