Computer squishes into wall-socket

“How ‘thin’ can a thin client get? How about one that fits into an existing wall-mount LAN jack box? The Jack-PC from Chip PC Technologies takes ‘zero desk space’ by converting existing enterprise LAN jacks into full-function Windows CE-powered thin client computers, without requiring additional cabling, according to the company.

“The Jack-PC runs Windows CE on an AMD Au1550 Alchemy processor with up to 128 MB of DDR RAM and 64 MB of DiskOnChip (DoC) Flash storage (the internal Jack-PC embedded computer is shown on the right). Three versions are available: two supporting analog displays up to 1280 x 1024, and the third supporting DVI up to 1600 x 1200.

“Two of the three models are powered via a Power over Ethernet (PoE) capability. If PoE is not available, the model 6700 can use an external 5 VDC supply.”
