Windows Embedded Industryis the brand of Windows Embedded operating systems for industry devices and once only for point of sale systems. This brand was limited to theWindows Embedded for Point of Serviceoperating system released in 2006, which is based onWindows XP Embedded.Microsoft also has an updated version of Windows Embedded for Point of service, named Windows embedded POSReady 2009. However, Windows Embedded POSReady 7 based on Windows 7 SP1 was released in 2011 which succeeded POSReady 2009. Microsoft has since changed the name of this product from Windows Embedded POSReady to Windows Embedded Industry. Microsoft released Windows Embedded 8 Industry in April 2013, followed by 8.1 Industry in October 2013.

Windows Embedded Compact(previously known asWindows Embedded CEorWindows CE)is the version of Windows Embedded for very small computers andembedded systems, includingconsumer electronicsdevices likeset-top boxesand video game consoles. Windows Embedded Compact is a modular real-time operating system with a specialized kernel that can run in under 1 MB of memory. It comes with thePlatform Buildertool that can be used to add modules to the installation image to create a custom installation, depending on the device used. Windows Embedded Compact is available forARMMIPSSuperHandx86processor architectures.
Microsoft made available a specialized version of Windows Embedded Compact, known asWindows Mobile, for use in mobile phones. It is a customized image of Windows Embedded Compact along with specialized modules for use in Mobile phones.Windows Mobilewas available in four variants:Windows Mobile Classic(forPocket PC),Windows Mobile Standard(forsmartphones) andWindows Mobile Professional(forPDA/Pocket PC Phone Edition) andWindows Mobile for Automotive(for communication/entertainment/information systems used in automobiles). Modified versions of Windows Mobile were used forPortable Media Centers. In 2010,Windows Mobilewas replaced byWindows Phone 7, which was also based on Windows Embedded Compact, but was not compatible with any previous products.
In mid-1998, Microsoft worked with VenturCom, for their Windows NT Embedded product.Windows NT Embedded 4.0 got its start in 1998 with a small team of developers at Microsoft. This project, known within Microsoft as Impala, was released in 1999 as Windows NT Embedded 4.0a set of tools and a database of approximately 250 components that allowed developers to put together small Windows NT 4.0 run-time images for embedded devices. The tools allowed OEMs and embedded developers to create components encapsulating their binaries, and to add them seamlessly into Windows NT Embedded runtimes containing limited functionality and devices. Minimum run-time images were as small as 9 MB for a system featuring the full Win32 API. Shortly after release, in early 2000, Microsoft decided that it was best to take that architecture and make a new product leveraging the new Windows code. A new Windows Embedded team was formed, under the leadership of Bruce Beachman. He served as the Product Unit Manager (PUM) of the first Windows Embedded and started recruiting engineers within Microsoft. The team set their sights on this next version. A decision was made to stop development of Windows 2000 Embedded,and start work on a Windows XP Embedded product (then called Whistler). Plans were drawn up, the team was expanded, and work started on Whistler Embedded, codenamed Mantis. The component count has risen from 250 to over 10,000most of them device-driver components. The feature set of the embedded tools was enriched to include things like basic version control, component scripting, and expandability. Tools were also added to make it easier to start with a blank slab of hardware and to deploy an embedded OS on it quickly and easily. On August 26, 2001, Beta 2 of Windows XP Embedded was released, with a full release planned for later that year.The initial team consisted of:
WindowsIoT, formerlyWindows Embedded, is a family ofoperating systemsfromMicrosoftdesigned for use inembedded systems. Microsoft currently has three different subfamilies of operating systems for embedded devices targeting a wide market, ranging from small-footprint,real-timedevices topoint of sale(POS) devices likekiosks. Windows Embedded operating systems are available tooriginal equipment manufacturers(OEMs), who make it available to end users preloaded with their hardware, in addition to volume license customers in some cases.
In April 2018, Microsoft releasedAzure Sphere, another operating system designed for IoT applications running on the Linux kernel.
In 2002, Bruce Beachman left Microsoft, and Peter Wilson took over the XPe team as its PUM, and by then the team was merged into Windows Deployment team, and they released XPe SP1 at DevCon in Las Vegas in late 2003.
