AllLinuxDevices: ADS Introduces Two-Headed SBC System with Independent Displays Running Linux

"Applied Data Systems (ADS), a leading developer of application-ready RISC-based embedded systems, has introduced a new product, the Tandem*, a two-headed single board computer system designed for multi-user applications."

"The new system features two LCD's working off one 32-bit StrongARM processor, facilitating two independent applications working simultaneously. Because it has two displays running with one processor, the Tandem reduces manufacturing and licensing costs in half, making it ideal for retail, point-of-sale terminals or kiosks."

"The Tandem has two times the features of most "standard" single board computer systems. Two MediaQ MQ200 Graphics Controllers drive two (up to 24 bit color) XGA sized displays, with two 2MB SDRAM frame buffers. Dual LVDS drivers for LCD data transmission in the unit now extend the distance the displays can be away from the computer, allowing a distance of over 20 feet from the panel to the receivers. The Tandem can run two separate speakers to be coordinated with each display."
