faytech touchscreen PC factory tour, optically bonded transflective, Allwinner A20 and more

Posted by – February 14, 2015

Arne Weber takes us on a tour through the factory operation of faytech Tech. Co. Ltd., a touchscreen manufaturer in Shenzhen he has been running with his wife for more than 5 years. This is the second time I am visiting them and faytech has greatly progressed since my last visit.
The video starts on the rooftop of the faytech factory in Hongmen Technology Park. We see a comparison of faytech´s standard 10” touchscreen PC, a high brightness waterproof 10.4” touchscreen PC and an optical bonded transflective 17.3” model for crisp clear picture even under direct sunlight. The tour continues showing the factory highlights: optically bonded resistive touchscreen panels, faytech´s new capacitive 15” touchscreen PC with Intel´s E3800 series and an explanation of their new A20 based embedded mainboard for industrial customers. We also see the equipment that faytech invested in over the last year like a temperature room, a vibration and gluing machine and a dust free clean room improving faytech´s in-house capability of touchscreen and high brightness panel handling.
The tour ends with a ball drop test showing that optical bonded touch panels don’t just have a better viewing angle, reflection and color characteristics but are also far more resistant against damages. You can read more about faytech at http://www.faytech.com

Android 5.0 Lollipop Android TV UI on Allwinner A80 Octa-core big.LITTLE ARM Cortex-A15/7

Posted by – December 2, 2014

This is a preview release of Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the powerful 8-core A80 TV box showing off some games running on the 64-core PowerVR G6230 GPU, the Android TV Remote Control app controlling the A80 TV box from any Android device, Google Cast casting YouTube video to the screen which means it becomes a Chromecast receiver and the Enhanced Google Voice Search using microphone, which are just some of the advantages of Google's Android TV UI for Android 5.0 Lollipop. I especially think that the most important thing about Android TV is Google's support, them pushing for more gamepad controlled games, more TV-centric entertainment apps for streaming more video-on-demand, and an overall improvement of Android for TV usage. Support for Android TV UI on Android 5.0 I think can accelerate the success of the Android Set-top-box market.

Current A80 TV box hardware specs:
8-core ARM A7/A15 CPU
64-core PowerVR Rogue GPU
2GB DDR3
16/32GB EMMC
SPDIF out, CVBS in, HDMI out, DC power in, LAN Ethernet in, SATA (optional)
WiFi Dual Band 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac + BT 4
