U.S. embedded hardware OEM KwikByte demonstrated a display-based, development system running a full Debian environment and applications on a power-conscious, microcontroller. The system is targeted at general purpose computing, test stands, access control systems, and inventory management applications.
The board supports smaller configurations like BusyBox and uClibc (top screen shot) as well as larger installations like Debian. The Debian environment was shown running the IceWM window manager on the 7″ 800×480 touch-screen LCD (bottom screen shot). The applications demonstrated include word processor, spreadsheet, browser, games, and system utilities. While external hard drives can be used for extra storage, all configurations demonstrated were stored entirely within on-board Flash.
