Why use Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2019 LTSC?
The LTSC version of Windows is designed for single-purpose devices with the key requirement that the functionality and features of the operating system do not change over time and are supported for a long time.
Windows 10 IoT Enterprise LTSC supports more than 30 different languages (MUI - multi-user interfaces). At least one language pack must be used, but you can have as many as you need, there is no limitation on the license.
Embedded Lockdown Features
These features are designed to restrict user access to the operating system. They allow setting up your embedded device to make the operating system behind your application completely invisible.
Unified Write Filter (UWF)
UWF intercepts all write attempts to a protected disk and redirects these write attempts to RAM (typical use) or temporary files on the disk. After the restart, the captured data is deleted. If some files on the disk need to be updated, UWF allows creating an exception for these files or directories and allow writing on them. For more information about UWF, see Unified Write Filter (UWF) feature.
Telemetry Level Zero
The desktop version of Windows 10 allows you to limit the data sent on Microsoft servers to the base level - 1. The LTSC version can limit the data even further, to level 0 - Security. For more information on telemetry, see Configure Windows diagnostic data in your organization.
Embedded devices in our offer currently use Intel processors exclusively.
The current version, 2019 LTSC, supports processors from Braswell generation to and including 9th generation Core i3/i5/i7/i9-9xxx, Xeon E-21xx, and corresponding Intel Celeron, Pentium and Atom processors. Newer processors will be supported in the next version of LTSC.

Our Aaeon, LexSystem, and TechNexion industrial embedded devices use Braswell and later processors and are fully supported by both the current 2019 LTSC version and the previous 2016 LTSB version.
LTSC Version is Not Suitable for Everyone
Simply put, the license terms allow you to use LTSC version only on single-purpose devices running embedded application-specific software that provides the primary functionality of the device. The operating system must be configured in a way that does not allow the user of the device to use the device as a standard general-purpose PC. The operating system can only be delivered installed on the device.
SOS electronic is Microsoft’s contractual partner. If you buy an embedded device with a processor, RAM and SSD you can also buy Windows 10 IoT Enterprise 2019 LTSC license. We will install and configure the operating system as per your requirements within the Embedded Configuration Manager capabilities.
We will attach a COA (Certificate of Authenticity) sticker to the embedded device and enclose the printed Windows 10 IoT Enterprise license terms. If you are interested in studying the license terms in advance, we will be happy to send them to you. It is good to know that in case of damage or loss of the COA sticker, the device ceases to be licensed; there is no way to replace it, and you will need to purchase a new license - the COA sticker for the full price.
