Ultra-compact PC targets digital signage

Filed under
Hardware

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.

The device supports Linux, Windows Embedded Standard, Windows 7, Windows XP, and Windows Vista, the company adds.

You have your Windows in my Linux

Although there are those who think the systemd debate has been decided in favor of systemd, the exceedingly loud protests on message boards, forums, and the posts I wrote over the past two weeks would indicate otherwise. I've seen many declarations of victory for systemd, now that Red Hat has forced it into the enterprise with the release of RHEL 7. I don't think it's that easy. Read more
