Digi Connect ME 9210 - the World's Smallest Linux Server
Digi International introduced Digi Connect ME 9210, a miniature PC working with Digi Embedded Linux. The company believes that Digi Connect ME 9210 is the world's smallest Linux server and states that the novelty will enable manufactures to add protected Ethernet connectivity into compact devices.
Digi Embedded Linux is based on Linux 2.6.26. Besides, the build includes Digi Package Manager that allows updating via the Digi ESP development environment.
Digi Connect ME 9210 is sized 36.7 x 19.05 x 18.67 mm and features the 75MHz ARM9-based NS9210 processor, 8MB RAM, 2MB/4MB flash memory. Interfaces include 10/100 Ethernet (10/100Base-T), serial port, SPI, I2C, GPIO, CAN, 1-wire and Flexible Interface Modules (FIM). The latter enables to tailor the device for specific needs.
Digi Connect ME 9210 features a built-in NIST certified AES accelerator for protected network connections that works 10 times faster than purely software solutions. The server supports power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and thus lets create devices not requiring standalone power sources. At that, power consumption can be reduced with the help of the Digi Dynamic Power Control kit.
Modules and Digi Connect ME 9210 JumpStart Kits for Linux will go on sale in December for 48 USD (in 1000-unit quantities) and 399 USD, respectively.
