AMAX's embedded appliances, with x86 and x64 support and Windows 8 for Embedded Systems, will enable differentiated devices with the full power and familiarity of Windows 8 and extend business intelligence across the entire computing ecosystem. AMAX engineers embedded appliances that achieve extended life cycles, compact space-saving designs, are fan-less, and offer low-power consumption.
