Last year, I posted a 48-minute tour at the faytech touchscreen factory.
Here is the latest version (V.2) of faytech´s 7”-12"" Touchscreen Monitor Series has numerous detail improvements including lockable standard connections, a unique cable channelling back cover and mounting frames for machine and wall mount integration. Additionally each model has faster start up and reaction times because of an improved controller chipset.
The series retains its features including: LED backlights, 4-wire resistive touch panel, extra robust components, extended current input (8-36V), VGA+HDMI ports, three video inputs, wall mountable, a high-quality pedestal, and extended temperature range. Each Touchscreen Monitor comes with faytech’s 100% guarantee of no defective pixels, and is suitable for 24/7 operation.
The high resolution support (e.g. 1080p, 1920x1200 pixels) of these faytech touchscreens make them the perfect choice for a wide variety of applications. Some of these include: use as a surveillance monitor when combined with a HTPC or with security cameras; as control panels in the industrial area; in kiosk systems; as cash monitor or information terminals; for machine control; home automation; on farm machinery; on forklifts in distribution centers; wind turbine controls; telematics in transportation systems and in many other areas.
The integrated touch panel is reliable and accurate. The touch function is quickly established via the USB port of your PC, while industrial users can connect the touch function through the serial port. faytech includes touchscreen drivers for popular Microsoft (CE, WinXP, Vista), Mac and Linux operating systems. For Win7 and Win8 operating systems, no driver installation is needed because the MER4485 chipset used in faytech´s in-house designed touch controller supports Login using virtual keyboard and immediate use of windows gestures after Login. This makes starting and using Windows 8 incredibly easy. Embedded systems like e.g. the raspberry Pi are also supported.
Customization is available for project customers (e.g. higher brightness, brightness sensor, IP protection classes, webcam, scanners, printers, capacitive and SAW touch panels, etc.). See more information about faytech products at www.faytech.com
$4 Allwinner A33 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 SoC now in full mass production tablets, my reports from range of factories and PCB design houses
Over this past week, I filmed at some of the factories and PCB design houses that are ramping up mass production of their new Allwinner A33 with Mali400MP2 based tablet designs, including Yifang, Neostra, Aikun, Storex, ChipHD and iNet. Allwinner sells the complete SoC at only $4, to that the PCB designs and factories add all the other components that make up a tablet, reaching prices below $33 for 7" tablets with 1024x600 displays when bought in bulks of more than 5000 pieces (as you can see in the Neostra video). Allwinner positions their new A33 chipset as the new entry-level performance to be expected in the entry-level Android tablets to be sold worldwide. Not only improving the multi-core performance, Allwinner has also improved power consumption through optimizing the DDR RAM system, an advanced fabrication process, optimized DVFS technology, and a unique Talking Standby mode that allows extremely low power consumption during voice calls. Mali400MP2 GPU architecture. A33 is pin-compatible with A23 dual core, offers 1080p video playback and capture, Integrated MIPI DSI controller, up to 1280x800, SmartColor display technology and an Integrated Hi-Fi audio codec.

I filmed Eken many times and on January 11th 2012 at their booth it was the first time I heard about Allwinner, Eken was the first Tablet company I had seen implementing the Allwinner A10. This probably means that Eken has a close relationship with Allwinner to always implement their newest processors early into their tablet manufacturing.
Tour at the Ramos offices in Shenzhen Hi-Tech Park area. Here they have their engineers, sales, marketing and management departments, while their factory is at another part of Shenzhen (at which I may film later). Ramos shows their Exynos5260 Hexacore based tablet, as well as some MediaTek and Intel based tablets.
Ramos shows their latest and upcoming Tablets and Smartphones on Samsung Exynos5260 Hexacore, MediaTek MT6592, Actions ATM7039 and they also do dual-boot Windows 8.1 and Android on x86.
