 Subject: Re: What is the b-mark [benchmark] small affordable Host ?

 To build a router, radio interface, spread spectrum intreface on
 "small FreeBSD" has there been a [study] of what is the smallest
 "hardware platform" 386, 486, X86 m-board, FlashDisk, power supply
 that can be assembled in the small footprint, dollar and [..] power
 consumption model.

 I have seen a PC in a cigar box somewhere .. but didn't think it
 was low power ..

And SO ..

 Looks like the makings of an other web page .. for now it will have
 to go into the area ..

 ... Hope to participate in the search for the really small PC
 Host for router / dsss / dgps / data radio gadget box ..
  I will appreciate your help in the criteria department ..

Criteria ..

  • Watts / Milliwatts - ( active | sleeping )
  • CPU
  • Volatile memory ( amount, types )
  • NV Memory ( amount, types )
  • Single board, bus,
  • included I/o devs

  • More ???

    Thanks for the help getting started ..

    If my previous email didn't have enough ideas. Send me one directly
    and I'll look up some of the other places that might be helpful.

    Some places to look are:
    JumpTec DimmPC
    Cell Computing, Inc. CardPC
    Epson Electronics Card-PC
    CompuLab i960 micro-cards and a new 486-based one.
    ZF Micro 386-based PC-on-chip, claimed price is $50, claimed shipping is in Jan. 2000
    Take a look at the work at Stanford University with their
    Matchbox PC & Matchbox server
    Also look at for possibly the "smallest web server" around.
