This document provides an overview of Windows Automotive 5.0 and describes how to use its tools.




Overview of Windows Automotive 5.0


Windows Automotive Development Environment Configuration Guide
This section describes how to configure a development environment and use it to take advantage of the characteristics of the Windows Automotive architecture. Also covers efficient development techniques.


Automotive Configuration
This section describes the sample configurations that can be used as a basis for user system development.


Virtual Memory (VM) Expansion Tool
This section describes the VM Expansion Tool as a solution for the problem of insufficient processing memory.


CPU Time Measurement Tool
This section describes how the CPU is used by Windows Automotive, which is essential to being able to tune the system optimally. This section also describes the techniques and tools used to verify how the CPU is used.


Memory Usage Measurement Tool
To design a system which is more stable, it is important to obtain the size of memory used by modules in the system. This section describes the techniques and tools for understanding the characteristics of memory.


System Monitoring Tool
This section describes the tool that monitors the delay time for a thread of a given priority in order to detect the program going into an infinite loop or becoming unresponsive.


Error Handling Tool
This section describes the unified error management framework for the entire system, as well as the method for detecting an application exception, saving exception information, and restarting the system.


System Logging Tool
This section describes the logging tool that can collect various types of data, such as application, OS, and AUI logs.


TFAT File System
The transaction-safe FAT file system is intended for automotive devices that guard against a power cut or media removal during a write operation. This section describes the extended functions of the TFAT file system.


High-Speed Graphics Processing Framework GDI-Sub
This section describes the standard specifications of the high-speed rendering architecture GDI-Sub, which allows access to the functions of a graphic chip that support the execution of rendering commands asynchronously with the CPU.


Fast Cold Boot Guide
This section discusses various methods that can contribute to faster startup, and describes how to incorporate them.


GWES2 (GWES for Automotive)
This section describes GWES2, which is the operating environment for execution of GDI applications in the Automotive Device Configuration.


Ready Guard
This chapter describes the features of Ready Guard, newly added to Windows Automotive inversion 5.5.
