MAI LOGIC UNveiled the SMART TERMINAL at the Modern Computing Technology and Product Demonstration Forum IN CHINA

FREMONT, CA. Sep 15, 2004. Mai Logic Incorporated, a fabless IC and system design house specializing in designing and marketing innovative chipset and platform solutions for use in PowerPC microprocessor based applications, announced the Smart Terminal architecture at the Modern Computing Technology and Product Demonstration Forum on September 8, 2004, in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

Hosted and organized by Chinese E-Commerce Association, Chinese Aviation Technology Group, and Beijing-based ARC.9 Computing Co. Ltd., the main purpose of this forum is to introduce and promote the Smart Terminal having general desktop functions to accelerate adoption of Linux on PowerPC solutions for implementations in client devices, network computers (NC), and office automation (OS) systems for governmental, educational, financial, industrial, and commercial organizations in China.

The system architecture of the Smart Terminal is based on the Teron Mini platform, a Mini-ITX form factor (170mm X 170mm) mainboard which incorporates Mai Logic's Articia S chipset and IBM's latest PowerPC 750FX/GX microprocessor. Running on the open-sourced Linux OS, the "Ready for IBM Technology" certified Teron Mini makes the Smart Terminal a robust and reliable computer. Thanks to its compact size, low power consumption, low cost, and overall versatility, the Smart Terminal is ideally suited for the rigorous demands large mission-critical users. Multiple Smart Terminals can access applications at the server while running local Linux desktop applications simultaneously by utilizing a hierarchical, distributed architecture which links hundreds of systems together into one seamless network that reduces costs, accommodates consolidations, boosts security, and increase productivity. "The small size and performance power of the Smart Terminal provide distinct advantages to both customers and system integrators," said Jason, Hou, Chief Executive Officer of Mai Logic.

With technical assistance and support provided by IBM, California-based Mai Logic Incorporated and its affiliate, Inguard Incorporated, there were 300 hundreds of high-performance and diskless smart terminals setup in this event for demonstrating video broadcasting, video streaming, 3D game application, Linux Office Suite application, and RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) client application. The on-site demonstration enabled all attendees to use new high-performance/low-power PowerPC Linux based Smart Terminals and experience a verity of applications it can offer.

In addition, IBM and Xi'an Jiaotong University announced a jointly established Linux research lab in the forum. Led by Inguard, IBM and China's Ministry of Education, this is the first Linux research lab located on the campus of a higher educational institute in China. As a part of China's 863 program (National High Technology Research and Development Program of China), this lab aims at providing a Linux educational platform toward the western China.

Estimated more than 300 people attended this event, including high-profile government officials from Ministry of Information Industry, scholars and experts from Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, managers of prospective and potential customers in electricity, petrochemical, financial, and telecommunication industries, executives of ARC.9, IBM, Mai Logic, and Inguard, as well as journalists from major media such as SINA, the largest Internet News Agency in China and Xinhua, the largest news agency in China.

I generally not worry about people say, but I was seen my name on ann.lu and maybe trying to say me as some type of blue troll...

I've been wondering how many of you at ANN who are bashing against Eyetech really own an AmigaOne?

This is a concern for current A1-owners, so if one doesn't own one, why bother at all to bash the innocent team at Eyetech. Mr Redhouse has never ever lied to the Amiga community and there is no faults in the Amigaone hardware. So you blue trolls focus your low IQ on something important.

Blue trolls? Why all people that not likes os4/eyetech/aone is a blue troll? Why not just blue? I know some red people that not likes eyetech, others not like OS4, others aone and others not like nothing of these... So all people that blame the "blessed amiga companies" are just evil blue trolls? :P

About being blue, I like a lot the amiga classic platform, I was a PC user and later converted to Amiga, with MorphOS actually I see an interesting sucessor of the amiga, I see an evolution, not only can run legacy stuff and keep in the past all time...

It seems that you don't know that actually MOST OF AMIGA COMPANIES that are still in the amiga market are just liars doing crap stuff (or simply a crap company), that's because most of them are still on a very small market instead migrate to some bigger market, it isn't nostalgic, money is the main thing on a company, not sentimients... Wake up from your dream... When there was interesting companies was in the commodore ages and maybe a bit more later...

Personally, I think that just naming troll to users of a platform is a very trolling act manner...

The Teron Mini V2.x and Teron Mini V3.0 are products that were created for Eyetech. In particular, the Teron Mini V3.0 is the result of my work for MAI to provide a product the met Alan's requirements for industrial customers. Without Alan's input and support, there would not be the Teron Mini V3.0.

If it really matters to you that much. My trip was paid for by Inguard in Beijing and I was an invited guest of that company. Alan was in China as part of a UK trade mission and as timing allowed, we were able to be at the show together in China.

Ikir is an idiot. Check out his posts on other websites and you will see him insulting Genesi and MorphOS one week then the next week he will start insulting Amiga companies and AOS4. He clearly has lost the plot.

Which is certainly a good thing. It would be nice to know whether any of the audience was impressed by the Amiga OS - which presumably they had never seen before.

They showed AmigaOS? Oh well then I apologise.

I must say all I read was the press release, since that is all we have here; none of the secreted special backstory that may well have been on Amigaworld.net forum post hidden in the deep dark depths :)

How about next time the poster qualify the "Amiga in China" style remark
further to repeating the press release? :)

BTW. Teron/A1 has special advantage... they are build in China if you ask from chinese authorities. ;) ;D

You're right, but that doesn't change my overriding point that this Amiga mention should have been mentioned in the main news post, and NOT 8 comments later after someone (not just me..) noticed it had no mention.

Not everyone reads AW.net religiously, or cross-references happenings months ago with press releases made public yesterday. Posts to forums (especially press releases and discussions on such) should be as clear as possible what the subject and relevance is.

Geez, don't encourage him. Isn't insulting disabled people pretty much restricted to a**holes and other misanthropes? Uh, yeah, I believe it is.

I guess that's what happens when you sell things at cost rather than profit.

Who's selling at cost? Genesi is making a profit, especially on these assembled systems; I assume Eyetech will, too. (At those prices, I hope so.) In any case, to clear things up a little for Agima and you, *both* boards are made in factories. Pictures of the Pegasos production have been posted, in fact. *Assembling* systems doesn't require a factory. It can be done easily enough by those people in Nevada, and probably even Agima could do it with the same amount of training and supervision.
