Techsol Product Announcement: TPC-35B Medallion Touch Panel Computer

Techsol is proud to announce the TPC-35B Medallion Touch Panel Computer.

Touch-Panel Computer with 3.5-inch, color TFT LCD and dual Ethernet ports
Delta, British Columbia, Canada - January 27, 2009

Techsol is now offering a cost-effective computer with a Color, TFT LCD and Touch panel and Dual Ethernet ports targeting User Interface (UI) applications. This standard, off-the-shelf, ARM-powered, desktop device features:

"This computer with dual NICs can be patched into any equipment with an Ethernet port without having to run a second Ethernet line, or install a switch, saving time and money." said Brian Empey, P.Eng., CEO of Techsol. "Simply unplug your device, plug the cable into this terminal, and run a short cable from the terminal to the device. And, this design is an example of the cost-effectiveness of mating a standard CPU module to a custom I/O board. If necessary, we can quickly modify the design to meet a customer's unique needs, too!" Not surprisingly, Techsol has developed many products that use LCDs for its clients. These products range from FDA-approved medical devices to high-volume consumer gadgets. In fact, this product has been in trials with a number of customers needing a user verification terminal next to a piece of business equipment.

Pricing for units with all options (dual Ethernet ports) are:

Order Quantity Unit Price (standard 200 MHz speed) Discount
10 $379 base price

Embedded Engineering is the same all over the world. Engineers face the same challenges of having too much to do, and not enough time or money to do it with. Techsol's Medallion CPU modules address this issue and provide a solution that extends into the production stages of a product, not just the proof-of-concept stage like most SBCs.

Techsol's Medallion system is unique in the embedded computer world. The Medallion Single-board computer product line encompasses multiple CPUs, and different configurations with the same CPU. However, the pin-out and form-factor remain the same. There is one Medallion module that is best matched to your application.

By designing with the Medallion system, you are effectively out-sourcing your CPU design and Linux porting with no up-front NRE fees! That lets your team concentrate on the hardware and software portions of your product that your customers see. The result is that you can create a higher-quality product in a fraction of the time (and cost) of designing everything yourself from scratch! Plus, the interchangeable modules extend product life-cycle times.
