Small-form-factor low-power embedded boards and systems
Since the introduction of Intel’s Atom processor, everything about the embedded systems board industry is becoming smaller and more energy efficient. Portwell completely understands the market demand of the Intel Atom processor and intends to exploit it fully so our customers’ applications can reap the benefits: better performance, longer battery life and reduced energy cost. With our foresight, engineering capability and strong partnership with Intel, Portwell is well positioned to keep our customers on the leading edge of delivering fanless, low-power systems and small form factor devices. Our Intel Atom processor-based portfolio includes Qseven, Nano-ITX, ECX, UMPC, ETX, COM Express and Mini-ITX, and is the perfect choice for applications in point-of-care devices and healthcare automation.

Communication appliances for all aspects of healthcare IT
“We will restore science to its rightful place and wield technology’s wonders to raise healthcare’s quality and lower its cost.”—Barack Obama, 2009 presidential inauguration speech.
President Obama then issued a clarion call for healthcare IT to take center stage in addressing the ever-growing costs of healthcare delivery. Portwell listened and responded. And now, our communication and network security appliance products can help you quickly answer this call to fast-track your products to the healthcare IT market for applications such as PACS, hospital/ healthcare information systems, VPN, healthcare privacy management, network security and enterprise threat management systems.

As a longtime member of Intel Embedded and Communications Alliance (Intel ECA), Portwell is not only committed to incorporating Intel’s latest low-power and multi-core technology when designing its product solutions, but also to supporting the long product lifespan necessary to meet and exceed the medical industry’s demands for longevity.
