How to Use the BSP for the NEC Solution Gear 2-Vr5500 Development Kit (Windows CE 5.0)
You can use the sample board support package (BSP) provided by Microsoft® Windows® CE for the NEC Solution Gear 2-Vr5500 Development Kit to quickly evaluate the Windows CE operating system (OS) features.
For more information about the sample BSPs included in Platform Builder for MIPS microprocessors, see MIPS BSPs.
Hardware and Software Assumptions
- You included support for MIPSII, MIPSII_FP, MIPSIV, and MIPSIV_FP microprocessors when you installed Platform Builder. If you did not, reinstall Platform Builder and include MIPSII, MIPSII_FP, MIPSIV, and MIPSIV_FP microprocessor support.
- You are downloading a Windows CE run-time image to an NEC Solution Gear 2-Vr5500 Development Kit.
To track your progress in the following table, select the check box next to each step.
|1. From the New Platform Wizard, select support for the MIPSII, MIPSII_FP, MIPSIV, or MIPSIV_FP microprocessor.||Creating an OS Design|
|2. Review the supported hardware and software features on the SDB and familiarize yourself with limitations that can affect your run-time image on the SDB.
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.
