Advantech Launches Latest Embedded Solutions

6/4/2003 - Advantech Co., Ltd. – the global Embedded ePlatform Service leader, just formally launched four new embedded solutions: EVA SoC Solution, RISC SOM Solution, Advantech CE-Builder Program and Advantech Embedded USB Technology. Announced at its Taipei, Taiwan head office, these solutions further define the direction and strategy Advantech is taking to strengthen and expand its leading position in the embedded technology market.

“Complete Customization” Adding Value to Customers
Advantech is actively developing silicon level products to strengthen its competency by leveraging its expertise in board and system level embedded computing platforms. With the embedded industry trend moving to silicon level solutions, Advantech has invested heavily in SoC product development, making it easier for customers to implement SoC solutions with excellent performance combined with hardware and software integration ease. Advantech’s newest SoC EVA Series chips provide state-of-the-art gains in performance, low power operation and cost effectiveness, and according to Advantech CEO, K.C. Liu, answer the needs of today’s customer and establishes the foundation to support future trends in expanding overall device connectivity.

Mr. Liu explains, “The trend in embedded systems is moving from “board level” to “SoC” (IC design) integration. Advantech’s close proximity to the world’s best chip foundries, more than two hundred design houses, and hundreds of IA and MA companies, will keep us in a good position to provide customers with the solutions they need, at a good value, in a fast way. In addition, with the gains made in Advantech and Taiwan in software development, especially with Windows® CE, complete customized SoC and board design solutions can be efficiently developed. This complete customization capability is where Advantech is adding value to our customers.”

More Innovation and Flexibility
With more customization comes increased demand for innovation as well as customer interaction, support and service. Advantech’s RISC System on Module (SOM) solutions provide customers with the newest 2.5” Intel® XscaleTM and Samsung ARM9 platforms that are open to customization. When more customization is needed, customers can use Advantech’s Design to Order Service (DTOS) to quickly customize the platform feature set to perfectly match their application needs. This flexibility also extends to software integration as well, utilizing Advantech’s new Windows CE Builder program. Aimed at assisting customers with pre-sales inquires to customized OS solutions and after sales support and service, the Windows CE Builder program has the flexibility to support customers at any level of project complexity and development expertise. Included in the Windows CE Builder program is the new online or offline Image Wizard support tool, CE-focused Build to Order Service (BTOS-CE) and Design to Order Service (DTOS-CE), Premier Account Consulting services and additional Microsoft approved CE-based training. Advantech’s Windows CE Builder is the embedded industry’s leading CE-based software and hardware integration solution. Giving customers the newest embedded technology, increasing flexibility and speeding up time-to-market response are ways Advantech is meeting the needs of the market.

Staying responsive to the needs of the embedded market is a challenge Advantech works hard to achieve. Our newest Embedded USB Technology adds flexibility to Embedded computing platforms by bringing USB 2.0 (480 Mbps) speed to peripheral expansion and storage. It also includes standard USB interface support that can accommodate various types of communication, Flash memory, and Industrial Measurement & Control I/O. The new industrial storage device – USB DOM (Disc on Module), is smaller than any storage device on the market, with capacities up to 256 MB. Designed for mission-critical environments, the Embedded USB DOM has higher vibration tolerance than general HDDs or CompactFlash, plus longer MTBF (Mean Time Between Failures) as well. With high serviceability, the Embedded USB Modules can be easily replaced with plug-and-play ease.
