Ultra-compact PC targets digital signage

,----[ Quote ]
| Habey USA announced an ultra-compact PC 
| with a choice of Intel Atom processors. The 
| BIS-6620 has a 4.7 x 4.7-inch footprint, 
| runs at 1.1 or 1.6GHz, comes with 
| CompactFlash and SD expansion slots, and 
| uses just nine Watts, the company says.
| Habey's little BIS-6620 has a heatsink and 
| case design strongly resembling Icop's 
| similarly tiny eBox PCs (variously based on 
| CPUs from Via and DMP Electronics), but 
| we're unaware of any actual relationship 
| between the products. According to Habey, 
| the PC has a footprint of just 4.7 x 4.7 
| inches, targets digital signage and media 
| playback applications, and comes with 
| Intel's original Z5xx Atoms -- either the 
| 1.1GHz Z510 or the 1.6GHz Z530. 


Cortus Announces uCLinux for the APS3 Family of Processors

,----[ Quote ]
| Cortus is pleased to announce uCLinux for 
| the APS3 family of processors. This version 
| of Linux is ideally suited to low power, 
| high performance, embedded systems. The 
| APS3 family of processors are modern, 
| powerful processors, specifically designed 
| for embedded systems, featuring a tiny 
| silicon footprint.
| The APS3 architecture is ideally suited for 
| uCLinux. The clean, uniform, architecture 
| means that the ported kernel code is 
| straightforward, easily implemented and 
| understood. There are no hidden pitfalls 
| due to inconsistencies in the architecture 
| which could reduce performance or trip up 
| unwary programmers. Developing application 
| programs is uncomplicated and creating 
| drivers for new peripherals and hardware is 
| simple.


TomTom Go 550 Live

| With turn-by-turn navigation rapidly 
| becoming the favoured give-away on 
| smartphones, it's reasonable to ask what 
| the future holds for the dedicated in-car 
| satnav makers.



Under the Hood with MeeGo

,----[ Quote ]
| Some may be surprised by the merger, announced
| this week, of the open source Maemo and Moblin
| projects, given their architectural
| differences. Maemo targets ARM, while Moblin
| aims to enable devices with Intel Architecture
| (commonly "x86") processors.


Palm's Native webOS App Secrets Revealed

,----[ Quote ]
| The discovery of SDL's inclusion in webOS
| 1.3.5 really should have been enough evidence
| for you that something big was brewing, but
| destinal and Rod Whitby's (of WebOS Internals)
| latest discovery is proof positive: webOS
| 1.3.5 also includes a method for launching
| native Linux applications without any of the
| Upstart hackery we reported on yesterday.
