These devices are IP64 rated and are designed to operate in the rugged and harsh environments that are reflective of this industry.
c) Field service operation & construction engineering. Our rugged IP65 tablets have been used in a variety of harsh outdoor environments.
d) Marketing/Advertising Information Kiosks. We have a range of display solutions for marketing/advertising signage and for kiosks. These include kiosk display terminals, open frame panel pcs and kiosk embedded boards and displays.
e) Education: We have provided Tablets for use in schools and class rooms. Coupled with the tablets, we have customized the units with custom ROM that provide restricted access to Apps and other features to provide a secure environment for chidren.
f) Medical devices for patient monitoring or data entry. We have designed custom android boards and displays for use in medical diagnostics devices. We understand the long product development cycles and regulatory requirements of this industry and choose the right SOCs, and processors like Freescale I.mx6 for development of solutions.
g) Self-service kiosks in restaurants for viewing menus and taking orders.
i) HVAC & Industrial control systems. Our POE based tablets and Panel PCs are used in HVAC and Industrial control.
j) Time & attendance systems. We have worked with companies such as Bayer, Ingles, SRS Distribution to design and deliver Android touchscreen based time & attendance systems. Our solutions in this space include 7", 9" and 10" POE wall mounted panel PCs that can be deployed securely in factory floors.

k) Industrial Automation & Control. Our IP65 rugged suite of Android Panel PCs are designed to operate in factory and industrial environments for SCADA, Industrial automation and control.
Our OEM pre-designed tablets (as listed in our website) are ideal for those businesses that want to enter the market quickly with a product and at a lower cost. The OEM solutions address a broad market segment and can typically address most project needs through minor configuration changes. These include tablets for general consumer use, rugged industrial applications and applications such as home automation and telematics. Most of these basic models can be customized with various options such as hard disk configurations, memory extensions, battery sizes, capacitive or resistive screens at a much lower NRE costs. These units can also be customized to some degree at the firmware level. If the off-the-shelf units do not fully meet the customer's needs, we would embark on a custom ODM project which is more involved.
Our ODM services are ideal for those customers interested in developing custom new products based on Android or Linux. For these projects, for standard off-the-shelf products may not fully address their project or market needs without more involved engineering. These projects may involve development of a custom embedded board at a specific price, performance or dimensions, display characteristic and touch panel design.
For example, a project may involve the use of Android/Linux based board as the main processing unit of an industrial controller, home appliance, medical device or serve as a display terminal. In this case, the Android board can be integrated external controller boards, sensors or display units via USB or other mechanisms so the resulting device can leverage Android to deliver innovative functionality. The integration may require design of embedded board to suit the individual needs of the project. The redesign effort may include board/PCBA design & layout, adding/removing components such as 3G, GPS, accelerometers and other sensors in order to meet specific functionality at a target price point.
Other common examples of ODM services include:
a) a completely redesigned embedded board for specialized application use. This may include include SOC/SOM board level layout changes, incorporation of new displays or completely redeisgned housing.
b) a custom tablet or controller device designed for a highly secure network environment such as Zigbee or NFC for home automation or industrial control.
c) a specialized internet device for fleet management, taxi cabs or other outdoor extreme environments
These projects typically involve more upfront costs to cover research & development costs associated with a custom solution. ODM services include:
a) Industrial and structural design
b) Tooling that includes mold and casing design using 3D printing or injection molding
c) SOM/SOC ( System on Module/Chip), processor board and PCBA design
d) Integration with sensors or other interface boards
e) Software optimization and performance tuning
f) Custom Packaging
Custom Logo, Branding, OS (ROM) Configuration & Packaging
Custom branding services is offered for customers who want to introduce their tablets with their own branding.
Custom branding includes:
a) Your own company logo and packaging including user guides and documentations
b) Your own splash screen so that when you boot the tablet, your company screen will be displayed.
c) Your own Apps that can be deeply incorporated into the firmware/build (pre-installed).
d) Minor modifications to the firmware such as rooting or enable/disable settings.
d) Minor hardware alterations such as memory, battery screen types etc.
