The Basics and Kiosk Design

The M1016 runs an Arm Cortex-A35 CPU @ 1.5GHz, that supports Android 8.1, and offers a variety of features for many of the different capabilities of patients under care. The design is based on a Kiosk model, with an a-la-carte menu arrangement.

Access and Power Consumption

The unit itself is fanless with low power requirements that lend themselves well to thin enclosure design and ease of use. The GPU is a Mali-G31 with high efficiency and the tablet supports e-health attributes for medical staff access, which can reduce the need for some reference and information dissemination peripherals.

Case Design

The enclosure is thin and equipped with an embedded 2MP camera, speaker, headphone jack, mic, SD card access, and RFID and NFC reader.  The lightweight and 10.1″ form factor make the unit ideal for both patient entertainment and nursing cart mounting, adding to its versatile uses in healthcare.

Power over Ethernet

The M1016 offers PoE access for a substantial reduction in hanging wires and cables, which can have a safety aspect in a healthcare setting. And when seeking a large quantity wiring and installation reductions can decrease overall costs. That can be an important factor in purchase decisions.

Applications Alternatives

The M1016 can also be used in environments such as fitness entertainment, or an information kiosk terminal. The low-power consumption and fast processing speeds offer many alternatives to the bulky kiosks in such places as airports and a more interactive option in fitness centers.

Cutting Edge IoT

IoT is a standard function of the M1016, and it’s modern and lightweight overall design allows it to provide multimedia infotainment and cutting edge software standard. The systems support the Linux Debian and Android 8.1 operating systems.
