    Congatec is rebranding and adding a bit of value to the giantec product. See videos from CES Here:

    In one of the 3 or more videos I talk about the branding relationship between the two.

    Hi Fiberoptic
    i don't think its quite that way. I work for a company that does reference designs like this for intel.

    intel saw this space and said "Hey i wanna play" so they found an ODM style company (congatec) and got them to design a reference platform (the first link). Now that platform is avaiable to anyone else who would like to make it as well.
    Giantec came along and was like "oohh me like me like" and asked intel where they could get them from or the ref design. intel said ref designs are avail here if you are part of the ECA or go talk to our people at congatec.

    i don't doubt that giantec had input on this device either though, just congatec was the designer behind it.

    i'm working on a ref design for them as well, just not in the CarPC space, i'll post some pics of it when i get my ProtoA boards
    maybe i can get AMD to sponsor my CarPC project though
