Windows® XP Embedded enables rapid development of the most reliable and full-featured connected devices.
Windows XP Embedded is the componentized version of the leading desktop operating system, enabling rapid development of the most reliable and full-featured connected devices. Based on the same binaries as Windows XP Professional, Windows XP Embedded enables embedded developers to individually select only the rich features they need for customized, reduced-footprint embedded devices.
Building upon the proven code base of Windows 2000, Windows XP Embedded delivers industry-leading reliability, security, and performance along with the latest multimedia Web browsing capabilities, and device support. Windows XP Embedded also incorporates the latest embedded-enabling capabilities such as headless support and flexible boot and storage options. In addition, Windows XP Embedded contains a completely redesigned tool set, called Windows Embedded Studio, which enables developers to rapidly configure, build, and deploy smart designs.
