Cirrus Logic's Nine-Series embedded processors are provided with all the necessary driver software as well as Linux and Microsoft's Windows CE .NET operating systems, which are optimized and fully supported by an in-house Cirrus Logic software development and support team.
That's only the second time I've seen Windows CE .NET mentioned as being supported on an embedded platform, while I have often seen linux or uClinux mentioned as being supported. Maybe it's just me, but why in the world would you need .NET on a microcontroller? Whatever the reason is, this is probably the same line of thinking that made a whole bunch of vendors try to ship embedded microcontrollers that ran Java natively. That makes about as much sense as running Cobol. The proof is in the pudding as these Java based micros have had zero market penetration. Note to marketers, 'new' and 'trendy' are not considered assets to a large portion of embedded developers. We've spent enough time hunched over a misbehaving board with a scope, a logic analyzer, and a debugger only to discover that some fancy new bit of silicon doesn't function as advertised.
