How to Use the BSP for the Renesas US7750R HARP (Aspen) SDB (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


You can use the sample board support package (BSP) provided by Windows Embedded CE 6.0 for the Renesas US7750R HARP (Aspen) standard development board (SDB) to quickly evaluate Windows Embedded CE operating system (OS) features.

An SDB is a hardware development system with which you can develop and test your OS design using a wide range of processors and peripherals. For more information, see Standard Development Board Design.

For more information about the sample BSPs included in Windows Embedded CE for SHx microprocessors, see SHx BSPs.

  • You included support for SH4 microprocessors when you installed Platform Builder. If you did not, reinstall Platform Builder and include support for the SH4 microprocessor.
  • You are downloading a Windows Embedded CE run-time image to a Renesas US7750R HARP (Aspen) SDB.
