Features of Industrial Computing
Industrial computers must handle a high level of dust or dirt to function efficiently in an industrial setting. Many industrial computers are fanless that limit the airflow coming through the unit, but the heat is dissipated through conduction. Fanless industrial computers are ideal for digital signage, industrial automation, mobile computing, and medical applications.
Android is a popular operating system for mobile phones and tablets. Android also features in the panel PC and embedded computing market as a secure and reliable operating system. Tekdis offers a range of embedded boards, embedded computers and panel PCs based on ARM based CPUs running Android OS.

Types of CPU
ARM processors are a RISC based architecture which feature fewer transistors, which translates to lower costs, less power consumption, and better heat dissipation. They are perfect for smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other lightweight, battery-operated devices. These ARM-based modules and SBCs support Linux and Android OS.
For digital signage and gaming needs, AMD offers great GPU solutions for the most complex graphics applications. Nvidia GPUs are popular choices for robotics, advanced driver advisory systems (ADAS), license plate recognition (LPR), and intelligent machines. They offer the highest level of AI processing through MXM and PCIe card formats. The AI processing levels range from 1050, 1080, RTX2080, RTX3080, Tesla, and Quadro models.
Atom, a type of Intel processor, fits into the x86 and x86-64 families of processors. These processors are ideal for low power, wide temp and efficient internet devices.
Compared to Atom, Celeron and Pentium offer better performance in terms of graphics. Though they out-perform Atom, they still feature economical hardware and Windows IOT licensing. These processors are ideal for single-screen digital signage and other GUI-based applications.
With two cores, the Core i3 requires a Windows IOT Value license and is the lowest in clock speed and performance, but it is the perfect fit for targeted and economic applications.
As a mid-tier option, the i5 has four to six cores. Like the i3, it requires a Windows IOT Value license, but it does have higher clock speeds and performance. It can handle a higher level of processing, decoding, and graphics performance.
At the high end, the i7 has up to eight cores. It offers the best performance and clock speeds for the most demanding processing, decoding, and graphics. Unlike the i3 and i5, the i7 CPU requires a High End License.
Targeted for non-consumer workstations, servers, and embedded applications, Xeon processors are the top name in x86 processing. Xeon offers the highest number of cores, resulting in the highest clock speeds. With error checking and memory correction, these processors are less prone to data corruption and are more reliable.
