Microsoft Keynote: Windows 10 on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

Posted by Charbax – June 4, 2017

Here's the part of the Microsoft keynote at Computex 2017 where they talk about Windows 10 support on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, announcing that HP, Lenovo and Asus are going to build thin and light ARM Powered Windows 10 devices with built-in e-SIM LTE support.

Full Windows 10 on ARM 64bit 10nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835

Posted by juliusaugustus – June 2, 2017

Qualcomm demonstrates a full version of Windows 10 running every x86 application through emulation technology that Microsoft and Qualcomm have worked on very hardly to hopefully be able to show good performance running any x86 Windows app on ARM, as the Snapdragon 835 is the fastest ARM processor in the world, at least the fastest ever from Qualcomm. The marketing angle will also position every ARM Powered Windows 10 Laptop as being with built-in Gigabit LTE through an eSIM meaning you will be able to click and subscribe to any Data plan or with your telco agreeing add your Laptop simply to your existing LTE Smartphone package. Consumers will be able to expect amazingly fast LTE connectivity, very long battery life, always connected always standby functionality (checking emails etc in the background even while the Laptop is closed), compatibility with all x86 Windows apps (win32), it will be interesting to see if apps like GIMP, Adobe Photoshop, Sony Vegas, Adobe Premiere and other more demanding x86 Windows .exe apps if they can install and run with decent enough performance through this emulator. It will be interesting to see if Microsoft and Qualcomm are able to utilise all the hardware acceleration such as the GPU and all 8 cores of the Snapdragon 835 big.LITTLE "Built on Cortex Technology" platform to speed up the performance even of advanced apps and games to somehow magically perform well through the emulator. Possibly that Qualcomm even designed a specific area on the Snapdragon 835 SoC that is specifically designed to further accelerate the x86 Windows app emulation functionality? Windows 10 on ARM devices will hopefully start shipping at prices around $600-700 in extremely thin and light form factories to be made by Lenovo, HP and Asus and hopefully released worldwide before the end of the year.

faytech 2017 factory tour: Industrial kiosk PC embedded indoor, outdoor touch device manufacturer

Posted by Charbax – June 1, 2017

Here is my third factory tour with faytech Tech. Co., Ltd (after I filmed the faytech 2013 tour and the faytech 2015 tour) , this time at their newest factory location, seeing over the past few years this company develop from a small startup company to a world leading industrial touch device manufacturer with advanced in-house manufacturing capabilities is quite impressive. You can see for yourself in this video how they develop. In the video, Arne Weber, CEO of faytech, walks us through their new factory. Currently they are on two floors, one for office and production, the other one as warehouse, incoming material check and test area featuring also several special innovative projects.

For any industrial or commercial touch devices projects, for embedded, PC, monitor, outdoor, indoor, rugged or optical bonded you can contact faytech to see if they can provide you with the right solution (as you can see how I filmed how faytech works with their partners and customers in New York for example) doing it their way to combine German engineering with Asian production capabilities and service, interested parties can contact faytech here:

Qualcomm Snapdragon at Embedded World 2017

Posted by Charbax – March 20, 2017

The Qualcomm Snapdragon platform is originally designed for mobile, but now can be embedded into Interactive kiosks, Digital signage, Robotics, High-tech toys, in flight entertainment, medical imaging and all kinds of ideas for any advanced IoT. Qualcomm positions their Snapdragon processors for Embedded to provide a superior performance, low power consumption and integrated connectivity to make devices more aware, connected, intelligent and interactive. The Snapdragon platform offers development kits, single-board computers and scaling up to customer solutions, integration services and production-ready, customizable System-on-Modules (SOMs). At Embedded World 2017, Qualcomm talks about Snapdragon 410E, Snapdragon 600E and also talks about the upcoming 820 series for embedded all with long term support (at least until 2025) to provide their maximum performance. With many projects to be born out of the Dragonboard 410c and showing off other solutions such as the Geniatech Developer Board 4, the small Geniatech DB4x 410 based module, the Altierre Systems powered embedded vision real-time synchronized multi-camera 130-degree panorama 4K system that is in the Panacast 2, eInfoChips eragon 820, Inforce, Kiteboard Snapdragon 410 board with a LTE sim card slot and more. All these Qualcomm Snapdragon based Embedded products can support multiple operating systems Android, Linux thanks to the availability of the open source Freedreno GPU driver and Windows 10 support also.
