Move to the Next Evolution of IoT with Windows 11

Dec 27, 2021

Windows 11 ready IoT embedded computer

Microsoft announced the release of the new operating system, Windows 11, in October. IEI has tested Windows 11 on our products over the past few months, and we can help you on the transition to Windows 11.

Windows 11 IoT Enterprise brings support to USB 4.0 and Wi-Fi 6E for IoT devices. With Wi-Fi 6E, better wireless coverage and performance with added security can be achieved. Windows 11 IoT Enterprise is ideal for embedded or IoT scenarios, such as medical devices, point-of-sale systems, digital signage systems, retail, ATMs, and industrial control systems.

TPM for Windows 11 Security

Trusted Platform Module (TPM) version 2.0 is one of the system requirements of Windows 11. TPM can be leveraged to encrypt your storage drive. This protects your data, including your identity and operating system files, where traditional anti-malware solutions are vulnerable. Encryption also protects your data in the case of physical theft.

To comply with Windows 11, IEI provides two ways to support Windows 11, one is hardware-based TPM, TPM-IN02, and the other one is Intel firmware TPM, Intel® PTT.

IEI has released the updated BIOS version enabling the Intel® PTT function for a diverse range of IEI products, including the product series based on Intel® Coffee Lake, Intel® Whiskey Lake and the later platforms.

Windows 11 hardware requirements:

Processor 1 GHz or faster with 2 or more cores
RAM 4 GB
Storage 64 GB
TPM TPM 2.0 / UEFI Secured Boot
Graphics Card Compatible with DirectX 122 or later with WDDM 2.0 driver
Display High definition (720p) display that is greater than 9", 8 bits per color channel
