Gaia Communications Corp does NEC/Renesas Cortex-A9 tablet platforms

Posted by Charbax – April 16, 2011

This Taiwanese company designs and develops NEC/Renesas based PCBA for some of these interesting new NEC/Renesas based 533Mhz ARM Cortex-A9 based tablets that are coming out. The price using Gaia's NEC/Renesas solution can be $110 for the 7" 800x480 capacitive, and $150 for the 7" 1024x600 capacitive with 3G when purchased in very large quantities.

    ffor your information, they don’t develop anything since we are the company provide them the machines. The pricing is also unbelievable as well if they include the problematic 3g module. The machine is fairly stable and if they dare to still our design, we will definitely start the lawsuit and injunction right away. Don’t they have any shame?

    It is indeed very hard to understand who’s the real, actual manufacturer of these all-looking-the-same devices. At least, it is an information that is well hidden behind the Internet. I’m also afraid that the only ones actually showing up on the net (or in Consumer shows like this) are just wholesale resellers.
    After all, I’m a consumer and I’d ust like to have the best price for the object I’m buiying, but knowing whoìs the real manufacturer would make you access to a *real* echincal support. Which isn’t what all these are offering to the end users.
    It is also strange how close the prices are aligned among different “manufacturers” and that all these devices are just exactly the same.
    A question I’d ask if I was at the stand like you Charbax was: “can you open one of these devices and show what is the piece you manufacture, and what the one you purchase from someone else?”
    I’m afraid they’re mostly assemblers of third-party subparts, with Renesas (in this case) providing all the core parts, at least the the design of them, from PCB to OS, as part of the SoC selling package.
