DART-4460 Computer Is Smaller Than A Stick Of Gum

dart-pcThe smartphone that you now hold in your hand? It boasts of a whole lot more computing power compared to the computers of yore, and it comes in a far smaller form factor. Well, in recent times, we have seen how computers have shrunk in size, too, and the Raspberry Pi has proven to be an extremely popular choice to many. Will there be a rival to the Raspberry Pi? Apparently there is a remote possibility, as Variscite has decided to shrink things down even further, by rolling out what it deems is the smallest system-on-module with an ARM Cortex-A9 processor, calling it the DART-4460 which measures a mere 52mm x 17mm x 4.7mm. This would definitely make it smaller than the already small Gumstix Overo Cortex-A8 system, now how about that?

Some of the hardware specifications of the DART-4460 include a 1.5GHz TI OMAP 4460 dual-core processor, a PowerVR SGX 540 graphics chipset, a maximum of 1GB RAM, and up to 8GB of internal memory. Android 4.1 Jelly Bean is supported, and it can also run Linux-based software thanks to the Linux 3.4 kernel. This is a 100% complete system-on-a-module, where it sports 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, in addition to HDMI, SD cards, USB, and camera support among others.
