The day will be split into two sessions. One session will be a half day hands-on training session on how to create your own Operating System on Windows® Embedded Standard 7. This session will be lead by David Harris, who is one of the UK`s leading Microsoft® Certified trainers.
The second session will consist of multiple workshops and discussions about Embedded Systems, Boards and Intelligent Systems. These workshops will be lead by APC and Advantech specialists and will run for approximately 30 - 40 minutes each.
On the day, you will be split into two groups. This will allow the groups not to become over populated allowing everyone to have the opportunity to ask questions and receive first hand advice on any projects they may be working on.

Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Standard 7
This instructor led seminar is intended to provide you with an overview of Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Standard 7, with hours of practical experience covering the production and customisation of an Embedded Standard 7 operating system. The workshop has been developed by Bsquare and will be delivered by a Windows® Embedded Standard 7 Microsoft® Certified Technology Specialist.
The following topics will be covered during the workshop;
An overview of the Microsoft® Windows® Embedded Standard 7 operating system.
The different ways you can create Windows® Embedded Standard 7 operating systems.
How to determine what features your operating system will provide.
How to add 3rd party drivers and applications to your operating systems.
What unique Windows® Embedded Standard 7 features can be added to your operating systems.
How to licence the operating system you create.
An overview of the operations performed for the first time a Windows® Embedded Standard 7 operating system starts.
How to deploy your operating system onto production devices.
Looking for a small form factor board with low profile?
With the wide range of boards available, Advantech provides the best solution for small form factor boards. The range of products include: COM-Express Compact, COM-Express Basic, COM Express Mini, ETX and Qseven. All of these boards support fanless operation in various small form factors while supporting CPUs ranging from AMD LX800 to Intel Core I series. Computer on Modules allow for quick design turnover and also provide the benefits of easy development, maintenance and migration.
The focus of this session would be to introduce COM products and benefits to you. We will also be discussing the various technologies available on the COM platform and the support Advantech can provide to those doing a SOM design or thinking of migrating to SOM modules. There will be industry experts available throughout the day to answer any questions you may have.
Would you like to make your system more intelligent and reliable?
Advantech has the solution you require with its innovative monitoring tools; SUSI & iManager.
SUSI (Smart Unified Secure Interface) is a tool that lets you monitor critical hardware responsible for the smooth running of your system. This includes: CPU temperature, system temperature, core voltages, backlight control and a lot more.
iManager is a more robust hardware monitoring tool that monitors critical system hardware (as SUSI) but with added benefits such as; cold start-ups and dedicated on-board chip which runs independantly of operating system.
We will be running a hands-on training on both monitoring tools, giving you full in-depth information on how these tools can be applied and resources to help develop this software within your application.
Single Board Computers
Single Board Computers are the perfect boards for engineers looking for a quick and easy solution for their product. The wide range (3.5” SBC, PC 104, EPIC and EBX to 5.25” SBC form factor boards) accommodates for all the different requirements you may require for your project. These platforms are standard form factor in compact sizes with rich I/O, high flexibility and easy expansion capabilities. Advantech embedded Single Board Computers offer low power / ultra-low power solutions, fanless designs, compact and low profile architectures, extended temperature options and longevity of products. Above all, reliability is built into all Advantech embedded SBCs.
On the day, we will introduce you to the wide range of SBC products available from Advantech. As part of the training/workshop, we will have samples available so you can have a look and feel of the board and the build quality of Advantech SBCs. We will also have live boards running different displays and monitors. We will have technical experts available throughout the day who will be able to discuss any potential projects or reservations you might have.
Digital Signage and Box PCs
Aimed at organisations that may not have the resources to design their own systems, APC and Advantech can offer solutions and suppport on a wide range of Digital Signage and Embedded Box PCs.
In this workshop, we will discuss some of the current systems available and the exciting new systems that Advantech will be launching soon. We will also discuss the suitability of how Advantech box PCs can be used in different industry sectors including transport, retail, industrial automation, home automation and digital signage.
APC can offer short lead times, competitive pricing and some of the best performing systems making sure all of your projects are completed on time, on budget and to the best quality.
Specify the correct display for your design
With sizes from 2.8" to 24" you will be able to consider important issues such as luminance, viewing angles and interfaces.
Daylight viewability options can be assessed such as high bright backlights, anti-reflective and anti-glare coatings, transflective displays and the latest technology in optical bonding can all be examined and discussed.
Demonstrations of our new projective capacitive (muti-touch)
Our latest driver board with RGB, HDMI, DVI and CVBS will be driving the displays together with various embedded board solutions from Advantech.
