Testing a Distributed Application Written in Embedded Windows CE

[article]
Summary:

For many of today's smart devices, Windows CE is the new operating system of choice. Increasingly, developers are embedding Windows CE into many different types of  appliances, including set-top boxes, gaming systems, bar code scanners, factory automation systems, and many more. As Windows CE has grown, so too has the need for off-the-shelf software development tools. CEV PassPORT enables faster, and more accurate testing of a port of Windows CE to target hardware. 

For many of today's smart devices, Windows CE is the new operating system of choice. Increasingly, developers are embedding Windows CE into many different types of  appliances, including set-top boxes, gaming systems, bar code scanners, factory automation systems, and many more. As Windows CE has grown, so too has the need for off-the-shelf software development tools.

Today there are many tools and off-the-shelf software kits on the market that save device designers significant amounts of time and effort  throughout the device development process. Now, as more and more of these devices reach the final stages of development a new significant need has arisen: the need for testing tools. Now organizations can take advantage of a more cost- and time-effective solution for testing Windows CE-based smart devices; CEV (CEV) PassPORT. CEV PassPORT enables faster, and more accurate testing of a port of Windows CE to target hardware.
