CuBox Pro Open Source Mini PC Announced


A new open source mini computer has been created and unveiled this week called the CuBox Pro. Which has been created using a 800-megahertz dual-issue ARM PJ4 Marvell Armada 510 SoC (system on a chip) processor, supported by 1GB or RAM.

The CuBox Pro mini PC has no fan and measures just 2 inches square and weighs 3.2 ounces, but is capable of displaying full high definition video and will sell for around $159 when it launches later this month.

“We are proud to add the CuBox Pro to our product line,” says Kossay Omary, chief executive of SolidRun. “We believe many of our customers will benefit from the extra memory size regardless of what application they use their CuBox Pro for. Our customers will also notice that the power consumption of the new design is not impacted at all, which was a very important target for us.”

Other features of the tiny CuBox Pro Open Source Mini PC include infra-red receiver, gigabit ethernet port, two USB 2.0 ports and a micro-SD slot. SolidRun expects to start shipping the CuBox Pro mini PCs before the end of this month.
