10ZiG 67xx: Hardware 


 


 

 



I don't have an example of the 67xx series so this entry is incomplete. I started to create the entry when I thought I'd bought one, but what arrived was actually a 68xx series thin client. I decided to publish what I'd done rather than waste it. The entry will get updated if I ever manage to get my hands on a 67xx.

10ZiG 67xx thin client

I haven't been able to track down exactly when the 6000 series was launched. I would have thought it would appear in the '10ZiG in the news' section of their website which does go back about 10 years, but no. The only mention is of an enhancement "10ZiG is pleased to announce enhanced Quad Monitor support on its WES and WIN7 Embedded 6000 Series Thin Clients." in April 2012.

I ended up looking at the meta data of the few pdf datasheets I found. Several were authored by Michelle in January 2011. From this it looks like early 2011 was the probable launch date. Out of interest I checked the wayback machine. The capture of the 10ZiG website on 1st December 2010 only shows the 6617 - the predecessor(?) of the 67xx. The next one in July 2011 shows the 67xx range.

As usual there are several models in the range that use the common hardware base but then the amounts of flash and RAM vary depending on the installed operating system. Also there is a PCI card slot that was used to provide a serial and parallel port or DVI and VGA ports in the Quad monitor version.

As I write this (September 2019) the 67xx is a rare beast. I don't recall seeing any appearing on eBay in the last few years. This is a pity as it has a feature that a lot of people look for when repurposing thin clients - a PCI slot.
