Plug Computer with WiFi/ SATA in a Small Footprint

Building upon the success of the smallest Ultra-Compact Plug Computer, Ionics now rolls out the New Plug Computer HD Turbo. It comes with full WiFi (Access Point Router) Functionality, 2 SATA ports and a USB 2.0 port for expanded flexibility. When used together with an external SATA HDD Enclosure, the Plug Computer WS combines the capability of large storage features (including RAID1 redundancy) of the Desktop with a small footprint that leaves the Desktop looking like a bloated over-sized box.

Developer’s Kit

For developers, a Development Kit Option is available which comprises the Developer’s version of the Plug Computer HD Turbo built-in (provides access to UART and JTAG) which enables simple debugging and reprogramming.

Included with the Development Kit Hardware are:

  • Bundled Linux distribution, Developer’s SDK & Documentation
  • Community support
