Hi,

I've got a few questions about using WinCE on an ATMEL ARM9 microcontroller:

Is it possible to access the IOs (and/or their interrupts) when running WinCE on a ARM9 Microcontroller (ATMEL) ?
Do I need to write device drivers for WinCE to access the IOs?
How about other peripherals such as SPI, USB, ... ?

Isn't Embedded Linux easier to use for this kind of work?


Thank you very much

Resources, that are used exclusively by an application can be accessed in the application code, including interrupt handling.

USB is one of those more complex peripherals which you'll want to access by using the respective OS means, I assume.

People that are familiar with Windows development usually find CE easier than embedded Linux, most likely it's the opposite case for Linux guys.

Thanks
so, no drivers are needed and accessing GPIO can be done via WinCE APIs ?
