Ya Hsin has also received orders for 3,000-4,000 portable DVD players with 7-inch panels per month from each of several US and European distributors. The company also has completed the development of a 4x writing speed DVD+RW drive. Ya Hsin expects to boost shipments of these two products from its Suzhou new factory next year.
