|Pocket size Linux PC with GPS and GPRS|

Neu-Isenburg, 09.12.2008 – Electronics manufacturer Round Solutions presents the AarLogic C10/3, a breadboard which contains a complete Linux PC on a surface of just 104mm x 63mm. A Quad-band GPRS module and SiRF3 GPS module are also on board, as well as interfaces for USB, RS232 and Ethernet components. An SD-card reader enables the trouble-free expansion of the 4 Mb NV memory which comes as standard.
The heart of the PC is two ARM processors, responsible on one hand for the GSM component, and on the other for applications executable under Embedded Linux. The processor module, including the GSM component, is also available for purchase separately. Despite its small surface area - roughly the size of a matchbox – its 160-pin socket provides a wide array of connectivity options. Aside from keyboards, digital cameras and reading devices, this also includes WLAN, Bluetooth and GPS components.
According to Harald Naumann, technical director of Round Solutions, the new platform is ideally suited to the expansion of self-sufficient positioning and monitoring systems, which are capable of much more than merely transferring data due to the local “Linux Intelligence”. ”Coupled with a camera or environmental sensors, complex pattern recognition applications, for example, can be executed directly on the board. As the geo-coordinates are also transferred wirelessly, the board is predestined for mobile use.”
According to Naumann, a cost-free test server is available at www.track4free.com for visualisation of the geo-data. In addition, developers receive access to the world’s largest community for M2M communication, accessible at www.roundsolutions.com/forum.
