AXIOMTEK TFT Panel Computers Support SAW Touch Screens for KIOSK

AXIOMTEK, as a trusted Applied Computing Platform provider, has designed a series of KIOSK panel computers for customers’ multiple application alternatives. We are proud to launch two new KIOSK panel computers, the PANEL1155-807 and PANEL5155-807, both equipped with high brightness 15-inch XGA TFT LCD displays. The PANEL1155-807 and PANEL5155-807 support the most popular SAW (Surface Acoustic Wave) touch screens and high performance processors including Intel(R) Pentium(R) M and Intel(R) Celeron(R) M CPUs. The PANEL1155-807 is outfitted with an up-to-date front bezel and the PANEL5155-807 gives customers a flexible open frame pick. These two panel computers are most favorable for the KIOSK fields and public information solutions.

For preventing screen scrapes and other system damage, the PANEL1155-807 and PANEL5155-807 adopt SAW touch screen traits. These KIOSK panel computers also offer better luminance at 350 cd/m², superior image clarity, higher resolution and higher light transmission with SAW technology. The PANEL1155-807 and PANEL5155-807 utilize the Intel(R) 852GM+ICH4 chipset which features Intel’s Dynamic Video Memory Technology, a low power design, advanced mobile power management and up to 1GB of DDR SDRAM system memory which enables fast deployment of customer’s appliances to maximize competitive advantage.

These KIOSK panel computers both feature ultra slim mechanism designs: the PANEL1155-807 has a thickness of 84mm and the PANEL5155-807 has a thickness of 79mm. With such compact and ultra slim designs, users can easily set them anywhere. Both the PANEL1155-807 and PANEL5155-807 have built-in AC 250W power supplies and support powerful feature I/O’s even though they sport such slim designs. The I/O features included dual fast Ethernet, watchdog timer, three COM ports, six high-speed USB 2.0 ports, dual PS/2 interfaces, CompactFlashTM Type-II socket and Line-out/Line-in/Mic-in.

“These classic slim type industrial panel computers offer the complete full-functioning and outstanding KIOSK and industrial Human Machine Interface (HMI) solutions” said Alex Hsueh, Product Manager of AXIOMTEK’s Embedded Computing Division. “Furthermore, AXIOMTEK’s industrial panel computers provide highly reliable and highly flexible industrial-grade products in all-in-one solutions. Users are free to select flexible open frame configurations upon demand or applications.”

As a value added service, AXIOMTEK will pre-install supported operating systems. OS support includes Windows(R) 98, Windows(R) NT/2000/XP, Linux Kernel 2.4, and embedded operating systems Windows(R) CE. Net and Windows(R) XP Embedded.

These RoHS compliant products will be available at the end of September, 2006. For more product information, please contact our sales representative.
