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.

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more

    Calamares, the open-source distribution-independent system installer, which is used by many GNU/Linux distributions, including the popular KaOS, Netrunner, Chakra GNU/Linux, and recently KDE Neon, was updated today to version 3.0. Calamares 3.0 is a major milestone, ending the support for the 2.4 series, which recently received its last maintenance update, versioned 2.4.6, bringing numerous improvements, countless bug fixes, and some long-anticipated features, including a brand-new PythonQt-based module interface.
  • Due to Popular Request, KDE Neon Is Adopting the Calamares Graphical Installer
    KDE Neon maintainer Jonathan Riddell is announcing today the immediate availability of the popular Calamares distribution-independent Linux installer framework on the Developer Unstable Edition of KDE Neon. It would appear that many KDE Neon users have voted for Calamares to become the default graphical installer system used for installing the Linux-based operating system on their personal computers. Indeed, Calamares is a popular installer framework that's being successfully used by many distros, including Chakra, Netrunner, and KaOS.
