Do you struggle with:

effectively support the embedded computing community. Customers are freed from the hassle of dealing with multiple vendors

• GPIO to control system LED/buttons? • I2C bus to control fan speed & battery? • And more...?

(Hardware suppliers, System integrators, Embedded OS distributor) for projects. Our goal is to make



Software solutions easily and widely available to the embedded computing community. This is our commitment to customers who are looking for reliable embedded software solutions.

SUSI can help!

CE/XPe Image Service Advantech offers a full range of Windows® Embedded Ready Platforms to provide a complete set of components to enable the rapid prototyping and application development of Windows CE or XP Embedded applications. We provide an image customization service that saves time and energy, so you don't need to use embedded OS authoring tools like Platform Builder or Target Designer.

Custom API Service For standard APIs, Advantech provides SUSI (Secure and Unified Smart Interface), a set of user-friendly, intelligent and integrated interfaces, which speeds development, enhances security and offers add-on value for Advantech platforms. For some special peripherals or custom DTOS/ODM devices, we provide a custom API service to tailor make API's for customer requirements.

SUSI (Secure & Unified Smart Interface) provides a set of user-friendly, intelligent and integrated interfaces, which speeds development, enhances security and offers added value for Advantech platforms. SUSI plays the role of catalyst between developer and solution, and makes Advantech embedded platforms easier and simpler to adopt and operate with customer applications.

SUSI contains 3 categories of features: Control, Display and Monitor Control : Control to the devices connected with GPIO, I2C and SMBus buses Display : Adjust the brightness of LCD panels or turn on/off the power of display devices Monitor : Monitor the system status, including voltage, temperature and fan speed. The Watchdog restarts the system if it freezes or crashes.

Benefits Design Service Our design service helps customers deliver custom designed system software to quickly implement their added value solutions. Dedicated experts are assigned for dedicated projects. Our years of experience with the Windows® kernel and device driver development enable Advantech to help customers with anything from low-level device driver development to highlevel application services for embedded systems.

Consulting Service We can help customers to evaluate the whole project specification and provide our experience to enable them to implement specific Windows® CE/XPe functions, for example -- OCX, PPPOE, WLAN, device drivers etc. or to debug proprietary software and hardware.


Faster Time to Market : SUSI's unified API helps developers write applications to control the hardware without knowing the hardware specs of the chipsets and driver architecture. Reduced Project Effort : When customers have their own devices connected to the onboard bus, they can either: study the data sheet and write the driver & API from scratch, or they can use SUSI to start the integration with a 50% head start. Developers can reference the sample program on the CD to see and learn more about the software development environment. Enhanced Hardware Platform Reliability : SUSI provides a trusted customer ready solution that combines chipset and library function support. Developing applications using SUSI enhances reliability and brings peace of mind. Flexible Upgrade Possibilities : SUSI supports an easy upgrade solution for customers. Customers just need to install the new version SUSI that supports the new functions.


Rugged Feature Services Extra Services to Support Operation in Harsh Environments

Wideband Extended Temperature Testing (ETT) Solutions • Phoebus Design, for Designed-in Extreme Temperature Operation A new Advantech ETT solution is “Phoebus Design”, which involves designing a platform and pre-qualifying all onboard components to operate without failure in extreme temperature conditions. Phoebus Design provides 32-hour testing between -40 and 85º C to bring a new dimension to extreme temperature platforms.

Advantech offers a range of services that enable solutions to operate in harsh conditions. Extended Temperature Testing (ETT) services include Advantech' Phoenix operation and Phoebus Design for dynamic and static testing. A PC component conformal coating service provides electrical insulation and add protection from dust, moisture, fungus, corrosion and vibration, and a glue service increases resistance to vibration. Combined with additional services s

• Phoenix Operation, for Wideband Temperature Testing Advantech’s Extended Temperature Testing (ETT) services include Phoenix Platinum, Gold and Titanium Dynamic Burn-in Testing. To begin with, most critical components used for ETT products have already passed military and industrial grade certification and testing from manufacturers. All three Phoenix services provide 16-hour dynamic burn-in testing.

Solution for Preventing Corrosion and Mo

• Ph 85ºC -40ºC

• Conformal Coating Service A conformal coating service is offered to protect the PCB and components from dust, moisture, fungus, corrosion and vibration. The coating can be brushed or sprayed onto the PCB, depending on application needs. A conformal coating can help minimize electromigration between metal conductors. In addition, the use of a conformal coating can protect circuits and components from direct contact that can lead to abrasions or electrical short circuits.

ACPI Support Advanced Configuration and Power Interface Specification is supported by the Advantech BIOS in order to fully support modern ACPI compliant operating systems.

Fast Boot We can fine tune the BIOS POST procedure regardless of the customer's configuration to speed up the system POST time. In general, the POST time can be under 10 seconds.

CMOS Backup Provides CMOS back-up function so the system retains settings previous to shut down, thereby reducing maintenance effort.

Blank Boot Some customers want to disable the video output during POST stage and we can provide this function in BIOS.

Customer Specific CMOS Defaults If the customers want to have their own SETUP default settings. The customization is allowed in Advantech embedded BIOS. Custom BIOS Customized BIOS for specific code that can be executed during BIOS POST stage. VBIOS Support Sometimes the VGA BIOS's register settings must be changed to support a specific display panel. Our AE team can help to find these settings and incorporate them into the VGA BIOS.
