VFPv2 support for Windows CE
Posted 29 March 2011 - 11:04 AM
am new to this forum and I have see several threads about VFPv2 support for Windows CE 6 but I haven't been able to figure out where I can download that support or how to implement it in a BSP.
Can someone tell me where to get this information?
We use an Cortex-A8 (i.MX51) chip.

Try this link for more info:
Thanks I will have a look on the link. I have seen in the forum that ARM has done a VFPv2 library or that is what I understood and you also need a FPCRT.dll to exchange the default floating point support.
So far i was not able to find it on the ARM web site. I will search a little bit more maybe I can find it.

I'm far from being a specialist, but I have doubts on WinCE having a great support of ARM Cortex-A8 and VFPv2.
Windows Embedded Compact 7 just released has, as one of its main selling point, the compatibility with ARMv7.
It seems that WinCE6 can only handle ARMv5...
The following post, even if initially titled being for NEON, does include explanations for VFPv2² on WinCE6: http://e2e.ti.com/su...281/140269.aspx
Hope this helps...
Kind regards, Alban

thanks for your information. I will have a look on that link.
There are quite a lot of information on how the VFP support have to implemented under Windows CE 6 but the problem is that I cannot find the offical ARM support including the FPCRT.dll and information to implement it under Windows CE 6 OAL. All the links to the library and Dll are broken so far. i will keep on searching and hope I can find something.

I got the information from ARM that the link to the Windows CE 6 VFP download has been closed because of the VFP support avaialble in Windows Embedded Compact 7. I hope that can help someone that was looking like me for the download link.
Thanks everybody for your help.
