High Brightness Enhancement

Advantech Mobile Computing ‘s high brightness display solutions improve contrast ratio and enhance color saturation, yet with low power consumption and low temperature on panel surface (CTF). They also feature high uniformity (90%): up to 1,500 ~ 2,000 nits.

Sunlight Readable

Advantech has in-house sunlight readable displays. These sunlight readable solutions reduce the reflection rate by 2%, and improve contrast ratio by 10%. Advantech mobile computing provides better color saturation in outdoor applications, without increases in power or heat.

Power Management Design

Smart Power Management API

Advantech has iManager API for smart power management. The hardware protection feature is based on thermal reduction with CPU throttling technology. iManager ‘s “CPU Throttling” intelligently controls CPU core frequency to manage power efficiently.
