Taking center stage at the China Sourcing Fair: Electronics & Components later this week (October 11-14) will be the latest products and technologies from more than 1,400 Asian exhibitors. Products to be showcased include miniature SMD crystals, slim GSM phones and compact PMPs. Visitors can also drop by the new pavilions for GPS, and personal and healthcare products.

Recognizing the growing popularity of compact designs for digital applications, the fair will feature a vast array of SMD crystals with miniature designs. The booth of Taizhou Jingrui Electronic from China's Zhejiang province will showcase a wide range of SMD crystals designed for advanced digital consumer electronics.

"The SMD crystals to be displayed at the show are at the most advanced level of our technology. They are heat-resistant and suitable for reflow solder. The miniature sizes make them ideal for high-density mounting and compact electronic equipment," Taizhou Jingrui general manager Lin Jiahai said.

Meanwhile, the latest designs in mobile phones, VoIP products, wireless terminals, handheld two-way radios and Bluetooth headsets will be featured in the booths at Gallery Halls 6 and 8 of the AsiaWorld-Expo.

Exhibitors will showcase slim GSM mobile phones targeted for emerging markets in Asia, South Africa, India and Pakistan. Other products to be exhibited include GSM fixed wireless phones, VoIP products, GSM/CDMA mobile phones, mobile phone repeaters/boosters, Bluetooth headsets and handheld two-way radios.

PMPs with new functions
Portable media player (PMP) manufacturers participating in the four-day event said their new models will feature more functions, support more formats and will be made available in compact designs with larger screens. HDD PMPs and flash PMPs will be on display, many of which will offer new functions such as games and GPS.

"Customers prefer multi-functional products and stylish designs. In the United States, many parents like giving PMPs as gifts to their children. Demand from other countries is high as well. As we have developed a number of PMP models, we will showcase them at the show to cater to buyers' different sourcing needs," said Tracy Lau, sales manager of China exhibitor Shenzhen Link-Create Technology.

Also on display are the latest security products, including various models of car LCD monitors, wireless camera systems and dome cameras for home, office and vehicle use. Visitors will see security products equipped with biometric technology applicable for time-attendance systems, access control systems, fingerprint scanners and facial recognition systems.
