Plugcomputer

What is a Plugcomputer ?

A plug computer is a tiny, low power server, intended to provide network-based services within the home. It is an always-on system, and can serve data and applications to computing devices within the home. It can also be a bridge between home computing devices and Internet-based services.

The GUI Plug SD card allows SheevaPlug to boot into Debian Squeeze with Gnome Desktop installed and ready to connect your mimo monitor, 4Gb and 8Gb SD cards with GUI Plug preinstalled are available. Connection to the home network is via Gigabit Ethernet, and offers desktop class performance. – From

Products for the hand-held mobile device market. Platforms include ArcticLink for Customer Specific Standard Product (CSSP) solution in the display and connectivity subsystems of Smartphones, Smartbooks, Netbooks, Mobile Internet Devices. PolarPro for the interconnect and system logic requirements of power sensitive and portable applications.

QuickLogic – Flexible Semiconductor Platforms

Along with the hard logic blocks, the CSSP offers a programmable fabric. Based on QuickLogic’s patented ViaLink technology, this fabric provides a highly compact, low-power resource that can
implement virtually any logic function the development team requires. The fabric is non-volatile, so once programmed it does not need any external memory-based boot source nor does it suffer any start-up delay.
