Sunday, March 1, 2009

Fews days back we were talking about 10$ Pc where whole world was watching us but it was a big FLOP show by our manufacturers. But now i have come accross something called PLUG COMPUTING. Sounds interesting rite well check it out.

A plug computer is a small, powerful computer that connects to an existing network using Gigabit Ethernet. This type of device eliminates the need for an always-on PC in the digital home to access these services.
This concept was introduced by Marvell a leading fabless semiconductor company, Marvell ships over 250 million chips per quarter.

Marvell calls it the Plug Computer, for its small form factor that can plug directly into a wall socket (it looks like a big AC adapter wall wart without the cord) and at is designed to draw so little power (5 W) that it can be left on all of the time.

Specifically, the Plug Computer unveiled is called “SheevaPlug,” a development platform uses a Marvell Kirkwood processor based on an embedded 1.2 GHz Sheeva CPU equipped with 512 MB of FLASH and 512 MB of DRAM. Connection to the home network is via Gigabit Ethernet. Peripherals such as direct attached storage can be connected using a USB 2.0 port.
