ICOP Technology Inc., a member of DM&P Group, was started in 1989 as an industrial controller designer and manufacturer.
Influenced by the explosive growth of the Industrial computer demand in early 1990, ICOP adopted x86 SoC (System-on-Chip) technology and built their reputation on offering solid embedded SBC (Single Board Computer) for the applications where small footprint, low power consumption, wide temperature, etc, are concerned.
With more than 20 years growth, ICOP is now a company with manufacturing facilities in China & Taiwan and with sales offices in major cities around the globe.
