FreeScale LimePC Details
 
 

We already reported about the LimePC yesterday, which is an iPod nano sized Linux UMPC based on Freescale's MPC5121e mobileGT processor, which is a so called "motherboard-on-a-chip" device.

Freescale has now released a full press-release on their site and technical specifications for their highly integrated multi-core embedded computing platform.
The Freescale MPC5121e can be used for many applications in various industries. Of course a very resonating application is the LimePC which runs LimeOS that is based on Debian Linux OS.

Chinese company Tsinghua Tongfang is developing the LimePC line of computers, which is supposed to ship in 2008 initially in China and in fall in the United States.

Freescale's MPC5121e processor will power LimePC's full line of affordable, compact computing products, including UMPCs, pad-style PCs with large touchpad LCD screens, notebook and desktop PCs, and mini-ITX developer kits.
LimePC's consumer PC products will feature one or more MPC5121e processors and a LimeOS and LimeSuite applications software bundle.
Connectivity includes USB 2.0, 802.11g WiFi and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR wireless capabilities, as well as 10/100 Ethernet for desktops.

It will be interesting to see if this platform can take off, if it does Intel and Microsoft will have some work to do.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
