Advantech and ID TECH Showcase Retail Tablet with New Flexibility for Cashless Payment

Advantech Launches 8” POS Tablet with ID TECH’s ViVOpay to Support 3 Leading Payment Formats

Milpitas, CA, April 17, 2018 – Advantech, a leading industrial computer designer and manufacturer, and ID TECH, a designer and manufacturer of payment devices and components, today announced the launch of the AIM-35 industrial tablet with integrated payments.  AIM-35 tablets are designed for the demanding needs of retail and hospitality businesses.

Advantech and ID TECH have aligned to incorporate ID TECH’s VP3300 payment solution with the Advantech AIM-35 rugged tablet to provide an integrated mobile tablet payment system needed to operate efficiently and effectively to speed order entry and simplify workflows for retail and hospitality staff and customers.

The AIM-35 together with VP300 configuration supports three leading cashless payment formats:  MagStripe, smart card and contactless.  Supported NFC/contactless vendors include: Android Pay, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, MasterCard PayPass, Visa VCPS, American Express ExpressPay, Discover DPAS, Interac, Felica, and more.

“Advantech and ID TECH collaboratively developed 3-in-1 payment processing capability for the AIM-35 eight inch rugged mobile POS tablet using ID TECH’s ViVOpay VP3300 payments module,” says Justin Ning, VP of Product Management at ID TECH. “Together, these two secure and reliable components create an extremely rugged handheld tablet POS solution.”

“ID TECH payment modules provide the perfect combination of modern features and interoperability for our mobile POS tablet, which helps us deliver a seamless off-the-shelf solution,” says Jason Zhang, product manager at Advantech.

Advantech’s AIM-35 industrial-grade handheld tablet mobile POS system is now shipping from Milpitas, California.  The tablet enables multiple applications with an ultra-low power consuming Intel® Atom™ processor and multi-OS support. To further meet retail and hospitality industry needs, AIM-35 provides 8 hours operation and IP65-rated water and dust protection in a robust 4’ drop-tested tablet. Offering a variety of expansion modules such as MSR, RFID, IC card reader and 2D barcode scanner, the AIM-35 satisfies various retail uses as well as inventory management or self-service operations.
