COMPUTEX Taipei: Bestek balances x86 and ARM for diverse markets

June 6, 2015 OpenSystems Media

Bestek is one of the IPC vendors that helped make up the theme of COMPUTEX, focusing on the information security, interactive display/digital signage, and machinery automation markets, in addition to providing ODM services. The company primarily designs its board and chassis-level solutions around the Intel embedded roadmap, including the Xeon-class motherboard with 32-lane PCI Express I/O pictured below.

Contrary to the sentiments of AAEON executives in earlier slides, however, Bestek represents a Taiwanese vendor that has started to venture into the world of ARM. Figure 2 shows one such solution for industrial automation and panel PC deployments, which can be pre-loaded with a basic embedded Android board support package (BSP) for various low-power industrial applications.
