[#SmartGrid #スマートグリッド] Marvell社のPlug Computer v3.0:スマグリ向けのコンピュータ登場=>

電源に直接差し込むこのコンピュータ、スマートグリッド向けのアプリケーションをサポートすることを狙ったデバイス。 Marvell社製造のArmada 300という2.0GHzプロセッサを搭載、Bluetooth、WiFiの無線サポート、USBとイーサネットのI/Fサポート、さらにメモリが搭載されている、との事。

具体的にどの様なアプリケーションが動くのかはまだ良く見えないけど、他のアプリケーションと共有する家庭のPCより、こういう専用のデバイスを利用した方が稼動安定性、セキュリティ性の面でも優れている、という特長が行かせる可能性がある。


Marvell upgrades Plug Computer to v3.0; NAS, smart grid applications

Marvell has announced the next generation of its plug computer, the Plug Computer 3.0, which now offers a 2.0GHz Armada chip, energy efficiency and improved media streaming.

The black device — it’s about the size of a deck of playing cards — uses Marvell’s new ARMADA 300 processor, which lends it considerable computing power over its predecessor, the popular SheevaPlug.

It also improves on the original with built-in storage and support for wireless networking and Bluetooth, in addition to a built-in USB port and a Gigabit Ethernet port.

The Plug Computer 3.0 supports multiple standard Linux 2.6 kernel distributions.

Why is a plug computer so important? It’s the facilitator for putting computers in places like never before: the smart grid, home automation, medical monitoring, multimedia content sharing and security are all viable applications for the device.
