"ParView, a leading developer of golf course management systems and Applied Data Systems (ADS), a leading developer of application­ready embedded systems, will introduce an embedded Linux golf course management system at LinuxWorld Expo in San Jose. ADS completed the Linux port to the Graphics Client Plus, the company's flagship single board computer system based on Intel's StrongARM SA1110 processors and integrated with an active color 10.4'' touchscreen display. ParView integrated its golf course management software into the system and installed the unit into the front panels of the golf carts."

"Intel continues to provide StrongARM solutions into the expanding embedded Linux and wireless markets. We are pleased with how this application highlights the low power and performance strengths of our product," said Mark D. Casey, marketing director for Intel's handheld division."

"ParView's application showcases ADS' utilization of the 206 MHz StrongARM and its power management and flat panel drivers. One of the advantages of the StrongARM processor is its low demand on power. This application uses less than 2 watts at full operation. The system has an automatic idling feature that suspends the power to the LCD when the cart is not in active use."
