Director of marketing at Marvell SoC product line, here introducing the Marvell Armada 7040 and 8040, featuring dual or quad-core ARM Cortex-A72 configurations with Marvell MoChi and FLC Architecture. The demo quad-core board is shown running two virtual machines with a stress test for two cores. The board comes in 12Gbps (7040) and 24Gbps (8040) variants for network data processing, with a separate IC die for handling network functions. Prospective applications include 4-way NAS devices, network switches, running 3x(4x4) 802.11ac routers etc.
Imagination PowerVR offers graphics IP for the ARM SOC market. PowerVR graphics technologies are used in set top boxes from Google, Apple, Amazon and other. Imagination also shows its standard for streaming wireless audio. MIPS systems on a chip are used in embedded devices such as in cars, Virtual Reality, wearables, and networking. MIPS processor designs can offer simultaneous multi threading similar to hyperthreading. MIPS devices have the ability to run multiple virtual machines if necessary. MIPS technology is licensed by Ingenic, Broadcom, Mediatak, Cavium and some other. Approximately 800 million MIPS processors are shipped every year. The PowerVR Wizard GPU was shown for the first time in silicon with a working benchmark demoing raytracing. PowerVR Wizard GPUs can be scaled from mobile all the way to desktop and console.
On display here is the SECO UDOO x86, a computer along the lines of Raspberry Pi that combines a processor (a 2.56GHz 14nm quad-core Intel 64-bit part), RAM (up to 8GB), and storage (8GB eMMC upgradable to 32GB). The board features WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0 (integrated Intel Curie microcontroller), and a fanless design. It can drive up to 3 4K displays via the 1xHDMI and 2XMini DisplayPorts. It is intended for use as a Windows/Linux/Android x86 computer, or as a development board for universities and students. The basic version starts at US$89.

Equipped with 14" 768p (1366x768) or 1080p (1920x1080) pixel display, dual or quad-core Intel Celeron processors, 4GB RAM, 16/32GB of Flash storage, 2xUSB 3.1 ports, the Chromebook 14 is meant primarily for web usage and light office applications. Claimed battery life is up to 14 hours for the lower-resolution version.
Synology, a Taiwan-based company specializing in NAS (network-attached storage) devices, has on display their RT2600ac router. The router is claimed to have a throughput of 2600Mbps. Equipped with four antennae, four LAN ports, 1xUSB2.0 port, 1xUSB3.0 port, and an SDHC card reader. The router runs Synology's OS for routers, dubbed Synology Router Manager (SRM) 1.1, that allow for features such as being able to roll back files on the network to their previous versions and load balancing between different network inputs. The router can accept multiple internet connections including cellular data dongles via USB.
Displayed here is Marvell's broad range of network switch solutions running ARM processors. The first board uses dual-core ARM Cortex-A9. has 24x10Gbps Ethernet ports and two additional 40Gbps ports. Marvell's ARM CPUs come embedded with their security engine that allows for monitoring data activity. We also see their prosumer range meant for professional use, with support for a 10Gigabit port.
EziSmart is a company based in Norway with factories in Shenzhen. The EziSmart K1 is a range of keyboard cases that one can insert a phone into, to enable a hardware (non-QWERTY) keyboard. Targeted towards the elderly, the case can be flipped close to reveal an SOS button and four buttons for instant use.
