Linux PC in a USB key

The French company Calao Systems has developed the equivalent of a full Linux computer able to fit into a USB key, measuring 3.3 by 1.4 inches. Inside the USB-9260 is an ARM926EJ-S processor clocked at 190MHz, and memory comes in the form of 64MB of SDRAM, with permanent files being kept on 256MB of NAND flash.

Aside from the obvious USB 2.0 main port, the 9260 also has hidden secondary connections: two USB 2.0 host ports, and a 10/100 Ethernet port, enabling local or Internet connections where they might otherwise be difficult. The Atmel chipset used in the key is aimed mainly at GPS functions; there is an increasing demand, however, for compact Linux systems. [via MobileRead]
