Microsoft Windows 10 IoT

At the Embedded World Conference today, Microsoft announced support for Windows 10 IoT Core on NXP’s i.MX series of processors. NXP’s i.MX product portfolio is one of the most popular IoT processor families in the market and with the added Windows IoT support, OEMs can easily build Windows-based secure IoT devices.

A private preview of Windows 10 IoT Core on NXP i.MX 6 and i.MX 7 processors is now available from Microsoft. You can sign-up for the preview here. Microsoft is planning to ship the final version of Windows 10 IoT for NXP processors later this year.

Microsoft today also announced that they will support 10 years of support via the Windows Long-Term Servicing Channel starting with the Fall 2018 release of Windows 10 IoT Core and Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.

“For decades, Microsoft has been serving customers in the embedded and IoT markets and we continue to increase our investment and commitment to this market,” wrote David Lemson, Director, Windows 10 IoT at Microsoft.
