Windows 10 IoT Enterprise SAC (The Semi-Annual Channel is for customers who innovate quickly. With approximately two releases a year, you get new enhancements, features, and fixes almost as soon as Engineering signs off.) is the successor to the Windows XP Pro FES (For Embedded Systems), Windows 7 Pro FES and Windows Embedded 8 Pro FES operating systems. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise SAC is the same Windows 10 desktop operating system with a special license for the OEM in the IoT or Embedded System market. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise SAC includes the usual lockdown features that have been in previous Windows Embedded operating systems like the Unified Write Filter and Shell Launcher but includes the standard Universal Windows Platform (UWP) Apps unlike the LTSC version. SAC also has updates enabled but under deferred deployment control rather than locked down like LTSC. Windows 10 IoT Enterprise SAC is based on the normal Windows 10 Enterprise installation media but with the option to enable the well-known embedded features:
- Write Filters (EWF/FBWF/UWF)
- Keyboard Filter
- Gesture Filter
- App Locker and Layout Control
- Dialog Box and Notification Filter
- Shell Launcher / App Launcher
BVM specialises in producing ports of Windows 10 IoT Enterprise SAC on mSATA, Hard Disk Drives (HDD) or Solid State Disk Drives (SSD) to go with many of the embedded boards and Panel PC`s in the range.
