Sigma Designs Vantage 8654 Development Kit (Compact 7)

3/12/2014

Windows Embedded Compact 7 includes a board support package (BSP) for the Sigma Designs Vantage 8654 development kit, which uses a three-core asymmetric processor. When you install Platform Builder for Windows Embedded Compact 7 with support for MIPS processors, the following directory is created.

  • %_WINCEROOT%\Platform\SMP865x

This directory contains the Platform.bib file and other configuration files, the catalog items for the BSP, and source code for the boot loader, drivers, kernel independent transport layer (KITL), and OEM adaptation layer (OAL).

The Sigma Designs Vantage 8654 BSP supports the following features.

  • Video codecs with DirectShow filters: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, H.264, VC1, WMV9, MP4, and DIVX
  • Audio codecs with DirectShow filters: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MP3, AAC (ADTS, ADIF, DSI), AC3, WMA, WMAPRO, WMATS, PCM_CDDA, LPCM_VOB, DTS (S/PDIF pass-through only)
  • Support for serial ATA (SATA) drives up to 1.6 Gbps to verify local playback
  • KITL with RTL8139 and SN8800
  • Inter-integrated circuit (I2C)
  • Simultaneous output to hard disk drive and SD card

In addition, the following table shows the hardware components that are supported in the BSP for the Sigma Designs Vantage 8654 development kit for the SMP8654 SoC.
