iGoLogic announced the demonstration of thin client, telematics and RFID applications based on JBOX at the Embedded Systems Conference (ESC), in Boston, Massachusetts. Designed for the rapid development of J2SE embedded applications, the JBOX minimizes the risk of migrating code from development platform to target device by enabling both development as well as deployment on the energy efficient VIA EPIA Mini-ITX platform.

Highlighting the iGoLogic demonstrations at ESC is the Sun Ray-based thin client, a flexible, highly secure and completely diskless PC desktop in a JBOX with Solaris 10 X86, J2SE and Sun Ray software installed on a 1GB compact flash inserted in a VIA EPIA MII 10000 for small, secure, and powerful terminal uses.

"The JBOX diskless desktop is a significant step in establishing a secure Sun-Ray multistation thin client computing environment," said John Lam, CEO, iGoLogic, Inc. "Our demonstration at Embedded Systems Conference shows how important applications can be developed on the iGoLogic JBOX for rapidly growing markets using the versatile VIA EPIA mainboards and SUN Solaris 10 X86. We chose VIA because of its outstanding flexibility and performance in embedded applications."

iGoLogic is also showing a low-cost thin client server, a small footprint iGoLogic JBOX running Sun Ray Server software and the Solaris 10 x86 Operating Environment, and providing service to a Linux laptop running as a "soft" Sun Ray client.

Other JBOX demonstrations include telematics and RFID systems. Partnering with VoomPC, iGoLogic has created a wireless mobile PC for cars, boats, electric carts and other vehicles that can withstand the rigors of hard motion, dust and high temperatures. Running Solaris 10 x86 with J2SE on the iGoLogic JBOX this device is made of 5.5mm extruded aluminum, uses a smart car PC automotive power supply, 7" TFT touchscreen display, and offers tremendous leverage for existing data applications in the mobile domain such as entertainment, navigation, and productivity.

iGoLogic is also demonstrating a JBOX-based RFID application at ESC. This diskless, small footprint secure system runs Java Enterprise System enabling RFID capabilities for warehouse or commercial applications with very little additional new code.
