$99 Linux PC in a wall-wart

This is interesting:

A $99 Linux box built into a wall-wart with:

  • 1.2ghz Arm5 based Sheeva processor
  • 512mb ram
  • 512mb flash
  • gigabit ethernet
  • USB 2.0
  • 5 watts
    [li]supports standard Linux distributions (Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo)
    but I don’t imagine you can just install them like on a desktop [/li]

Pretty cool if it would run WD.

Vendor’s site:

Edit: oooh - the slot on the side appears to be an SDIO card slot and the mini-usb connector thing looks like the development interface. The docs include complete schematics and board layout photos.


Looks like I have a new project to work on. Thanks!!
