Hi folks,

Microsoft released its next-generation in-vehicle platform Microsoft Auto 4.0 RTM (codename Bristol). As Microsoft Auto 3.0 and 3.1, Microsoft Auto 4.0 is again a PDK that installs on top of Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2. New features include:

  • Added support for Intel Architecture Processors including Atom Z5xx series which offer an industrial temperature range (ARM- and SH-based processors were already supported in MS Auto 3.1).

  • Common head unit functionality such as standard interfaces for broadcast radio tuners and standard for CD playback and ripping
These new features enable developers to create integrated multifunction systems with reduced complexity, lower cost and faster time to market.
