Aiptek, Inc, manufactures and markets the HyperPen series of USB digital tablets. Aiptek does not, however, offer device drivers for Linux, nor for the X Window System running on Linux.

We support the following digital tablets: Aiptek HyperPen 4000U, 5000U, 6000U, 8000U, and 12000U. Other tablets we have found to be similar enough include, the Trust Wireless Tablet 400, LIFETEC LT9750, and Medion MD9750.

Our goal is to deliver a suite of components that is, first, concerned with supporting your hardware, second, with supporting your hardware in the most likely user environment you'll be using -- the X Window System -- and finally, concerned with providing you with a usable workflow. These components are,
