EV4 is designed by Aero-service in Poland, using low weight components highly durable aeronautical aluminum alloy, constructed like an airplane. The main frame of the vehicle is riveted just like in the case of airplanes to make it more durable and lightweight. The independent suspension uses an adaptive suspension system to adjust to the shape of the terrain at any given moment. Regardless of the surface type, terrain, angle of inclination of roads and travel, the EV4’s wheels uniformly and evenly touch the ground. Thanks to the electric drive as well as gear belts the noise emission is close to zero, which has a positive effect on the driving comfort. The vehicle’s low weight and the use of modern and efficient lithium ion batteries achieve a 100km driving range. Shocks are absorbed by two bicycle shock absorbers with adjustable hardness and damping. Hydraulic disc brakes on 4 wheels allow for very short braking distances, making the EV4 very safe. The EV4’s four wheels result in stability superior to that of single-track vehicles.

TechNexion is a Taiwanese company under European Management with own manufacturing facilities in Taipei, Taiwan. Florian Wohlrab, Marketing manager at TechNexion shows us around their booth at COMPUTEX 2016. The first thing to see is their tiny Modules which pack an ARM based NXP i.MX6/7 CPU (UltraLite/Solo/DualLite/Dual/Quad) with RAM, Memory and WiFi on just 36mm x 40mm. They are also the only one running a NXP i.MX7 live demo at their booth. The NXP i.MX7D is with 2x Cortex-A7 and a Cortex-M4 this a tiny, ultralow power, that can be used for vending machines, industrial applications or generic headless systems. TechNexion is also committed to the open source EDM standard for ARM Modules. Their boards are fit for Digital Signage, rugged industrial Applications and many more. Technexion can scale up to the NXP i.MX6 QUAD Plus, which will be available shortly. They also have some cool ARM bassed systems like their BoxPC the TEK Series. This Box PC’s have MiniPCIe slots with SIM-Card holder inside and also M.2 Slots for memory upgrade. Technexion also supports USB Type-C and for automation a VGA connector as well a HDMI to fit it for Digital Signage as well. Inside is a modular system which allows you to switch e.g. Power input between 12V/24V/10~30V/PoE (Power over Ethernet). TechNexion HMI series ranges from 7” to 10” and 15” again with NXP processors. All the Software is freely available on their website with no need to register.
Phil Poole, Director of Semiconductors at Microdul shows their low power temperature and timing sensors at the IDTechEx Show! in Berlin. Working with the Swiss company Algra, Microdul is developing finger-powered piezo wireless push buttons named Algra Dynapic, aiming it as stick-on light switches and other building control applications. Microdul AG develops and produces customised microelectronic components.
Microsoft is trying to launch "the next generation" of Windows as a Holographic world, augmenting the world we already know, with computer graphics, using their system for headmounted holographic lenses, with the Hololens that also has sensors to measure distance of things in front of you, and in a specific area of your field of view it can try to position augmented graphics on top of your environment. Now Microsoft invites hardware partners in Taiwan, in Asia and in the world, to sign up with them to develop mass market Hololens based devices, hopefully to be sold at below the $3000 cost of the Microsoft Hololens development kit.
AOC is a major monitor display manufacturer, they are partnering with Jide to sell the AmLogic S905 quad-core 64bit ARM Cortex-A53 based All-in-one PC, the price will be "not much more than the regular price of the monitor itself". It includes 4 USB ports, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, Audio mini-jack input and output. The HDMI port is an input so one can use the monitor to run any external PC or Set-top-box. There is a switch button on the back to go back and forward between the HDMI input and the built-in Remix OS experience. This is an interview with Ben, one of the co-founders of Jide, about this product and about the actual status of Remix OS in the industry and how Jide is striving to be at the forefront of using Android for productivity.
