A selection of weeny PCs
March 08, 2004
We like small electronics gizmos here at Mini-ITX. Constantly diminishing size and increasing power keeps us interested, and we're hoping to see some interesting developments at CeBIT along those lines next week. VIA's Nano-ITX looks like it will fill a space between Mini-ITX and the wide and varied Single Board Computer market. Although they aren't really comparable, we thought we'd present a selection of SBCs released over the past few months - for no other reason than they're almost "too wee"...
The P50x Spider from General Micro Systems is powered by up to a 800MHz PowerPC processor with 256MB SDRAM with an SD slot for storage, contains two Gigabit ethernet ports and measures just 72mm x 48mm x 10mm.
The Linux Rocket from Data Design Corporation is so small - 45mm square - that to do useful things it piggy backs onto a slightly larger plug-in board providing a DC-DC converter and interface ports. The powering CPU is an IBM Power PC 405 GPr running at up to 400Mhz.
Gumstix measure 20mm x 80mm, and come in two flavours of Intel XScale PXA255 processor, 200Mhz and 400Mhz. For a little more wedge, a small case with 1 USB and 2 Serial ports is available.
