CherryPal working on 2W PC with Freescale CPU

Posted on Saturday, June 21 2008 @ 00:35:07 CEST by

A new PC maker named CherryPal announced its working on a tiny low-power "cloud" computer system that will use only 2W! The system is based on the Power Architecture and it uses 80 percent less components than a regular PC.

At the heart of the CherryPal is a 400MHz Freescale MPC5121e processor, 256MB of DDR2 RAM and a 4GB SSD. Other features include WiFi, Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports and a headphone out. The system will use a thin client Debian Linux operating sytem, the case will measure only 1.3" x 5.8" x 4.2" and it will weigh just 10.5 ounces.
"The CherryPal PC is inexpensive to buy, inexpensive to operate and saves people the aggravation of managing increasingly complex operating systems, not to mention dealing with viruses," said Max Seybold, C.E.O., CherryPal, Inc. "Cloud computing has always made sense on paper; CherryPal is the first product that delivers on that promise to consumers."
The CherryPal PC features:
  • Freescale's MPC5121e mobileGT processor, 800 MIPS (400 MHz) of processing
  • 256MB of DDR2 DRAM
  • 4GB NAND Flash-based solid state drive
  • WiFi 802.11b/g Wi-Fi
  • Two USB 2.0 ports
  • One 10/100 Ethernet with RJ-45 jack
  • One VGA DB-15 display out jack
  • Headphone level stereo audio out 3.5mm jack
  • 9vDC 2.5mm 10 watt AC-DC adapter power supply
  • 10.5 ounces
  • 1.3" high, 5.8" x 4.2" wide
