Igel Technology is shipping three new high-end thin clients based on embedded Linux. The Premium-series Clever Client models are based on 1GHz Via C3 processors, and include local Mozilla browsers with Flash and Acrobat plug-ins. An Enterprise model includes Java and a local SAP client.
The new clients include both analog VGA and digital DVI connectors, to support legacy CRTs and LCDs as well as digitally controlled TFT (thin-film transistor) local displays. The UMA (unified memory architecture) video subsystem borrows 8MB of system RAM, supporting 1600 x 1200 resolution at 16-bits of color, or 1280 x 1024 at 24-bit color. Max resolution with DVI displays is 1280 x 1024.
