GIGABYTE Launches Its New Intelligent Vending Solution – May 04, 2015– Taipei, Taiwan (Techreleased) – Vending machines are going high tech, with built-in digital signage, encrypted transactions over Internet, and interactive touchscreens. These innovative adoptions are expected to benefit vending operators with more efficient management and may bring in a new income source from advertising and other emerging business models.

GIGABYTE Intelligent Vending SolutionThe GIGABYTE Intelligent Vending Solution based on Intel® IoT Retail Gateway Reference Design for Intelligent Vending is a turnkey solution made of:
– The GB-BXBT-3825 IoT gateway, which enables the connectivity of legacy devices and intelligent infrastructure to the IoT.
– The GB-TCV1A vending machine controller associated with a vending machine API providing a level of abstraction that allows vending operators to focus on high level applications, such as user interface.
– The vending machine I/O expansion board to communicate between the GB-TCV1A and machine peripherals.

GB-BXBT-3825 IoT Gateway

By integrating the technologies and protocols for networking, security, and manageability on the GB-BXBT-3825, GIGABYTE offers vending operators a key building block to rapidly replace legacy systems. The GB-BXBT-3825 is a computer platform based on the Intel® Atom™ processor E3825. Through the onboard software stack validated by Intel®, the GB-BXBT-3825 is the ideal foundation for a fast development of intelligent vending machines. It provides:
     – Connectivity bridging between legacy equipment and the cloud.
     – Data acquisition from terminals and pre-filtering for further delivery.
     – A hardware security root providing trust, data encryption, and software protection.

GB-TCV1A Vending Machine Controller

In the heart of GIGABYTE Intelligent Vending Solution is the GB-TCV1A computer powered by an Intel® Atom™ E3815 single-core processor. It delivers high I/O connectivity such as HDMI output for digital advertising, LVDS for low cost touch screen, USB 2.0/3.0 for printing and other consumer-level interactions. The GB-TCV1A associated with the vending machine API provides a consistent programming interface regardless of the underlying hardware. It helps the application to work across disparate machines and all functionality and features are developed as plug-ins and installed to the platform. It enables the vending machines to be capable of:

      – Multimedia interactivity
     – Cash/cashless payment and identity-based validation
     - Digital signage
     – Video analytics

The GC-SSP Vending Machine I/O Expansion Board

The GC-SSP Vending Machine I/O Expansion Board offers a broad range of vending interfaces to scale to both newer interactive vending platforms as well as traditional vending machines. It handles protocol conversion and provides a high-level of I/O flexibility.

GIGABYTE works with vending operators, manufacturers and brands to create an easily deployable solution that creates new sales opportunities, solves security concerns, provides compute platform flexibility and helps manage inventory. With these industry standard adoptions it results in a significant reduction of investment instead of the high customization cost on a low-end microcontroller that lack the compute power and uneasy to re-program.

We provide the innovative solution an all-in-one, off-the-shelf, and deployment-ready stack to reduce the overall investment risk to our customers, and since most of the engineering work is done, they can focus on market differentiation, such as to facilitate the implementation of new revenue generating models.
