ALD was founded in 1998, with our roots first appeared in the early 1990s as a leading hardware vendor supplying both system boards and X86 system core logic. After exiting the mainstream PC motherboard and core logic design business, we ventured into the system design and supply of bank terminals, TV set-top box, surveillance station, Windows terminal based on the embedded x86 architectures. Later, ALD expanded into embedded designs and open source software to take advantage of the exploding product and service requirements made available by the ubiquitous Internet.
