Toradex introduces NVIDIA Tegra 2 module on a RAM-sized stick
If you took one look at the picture above and figured you were looking at a stick of laptop memory, I wouldn’t blame you. The new system from Toradex certainly looks like RAM SODIMM. But it’s actually a fully functional computer with an NVIDIA Tegra graphcis processor and a 1GHz ARM Cortex A9-based dual core processor.
The Toradex Colibri Tegra T20 module measures just 2.7″ x 1.4″ x 0.2″ and has pretty much everything you need to power a tablet, smartbook, or other mobile device — although it could also end up in set top boxes or other devices that could benefit from a low power, HD-capable platform.
The system has 1GB of storage space and 256MB of RAM. The system can pump out 1080p HD video. It supports USB host functionality, camera, audio, and other functions. And the chip uses less than 2 Watts of power.
