In the application of mainstream and flagship-level chips, the cases of applications by the international giants Google and Sony were showed on site as well. Google has used Rockchip solutions for three successive generations on its electronic products for education, including the Chrome tablets and Chromebook notebooks. As Google Chrome OS is an online cloud system, teachers and students are able to retrieve all the personal data and information under their account by logging into their account on any terminal. Thus, it has strong application value and convenience in the education field.
Other exhibited items on site include the Sony reference design board ToF, which can be used in AR, VR and other fields that require automatic operation, such as robots and drones. Rockchip technology has been widely used in the base of the image technology.
