3.5-inch fanless touchscreen PC runs Windows CE
I’ve got a thing for tiny computers, especially ones that have touchscreens. If I had it my way, everything in my house would be controlled by small LCD panels. Granted, that wouldn’t be the most logical or power-efficient way to run things, but a guy can dream right? That being said, I would love to pick up one of Advantech’s new 3.5-inch touchscreen PCs.
At first glance I would think this little guy was a digital picture frame. Actually it’s quite far from that (though I don’t doubt it could be used for one). It packs a full computer running a copy of Windows CE. There are actually two versions, TPC-30T and TPC-32T, the latter featuring a CAN-Bus interface. The complete spec list is below.
Marvell PXA270 312MHz processor
64MB RAM and 32MB flash memory
3.5″ touch screen display
300:1 contrast ratio
200-nit brightness rating
320 x 240 resolution
30,000 hour backlight life
1 x 10/100 Ethernet
1 x RS232/485 (TPC-30T)
1 x CAN-Bus (TPC-32T) (CAN-Bus 2.0B)
1 x USB host
SD memory card slot
4.8″ x 3.4″ x 1″
It doesn’t have much power, but with its tough ABS plastic case and fanless design I’m sure that one would still have plenty of good uses for it. While they seem to be available now, there is no word on pricing.
