Compulab Makes Ultra Tiny New Trim Slice Tegra 2 Nettop

Compulab Trim Slice Tegra 2 Nettop

Tegra 2, the dual-core ARM Cortex A9 and GeForce ULP chip found its way into a new fanless nettop. It’s called the Trim Slice, and is made by Compulab – yes, the same company that jut released that new AMD Fusion nettop we saw last week.  The Trim Slice nettop comes in a  die-cast metal case just six-tenths of an inch thick and crams in a SATA SSD, 1GB of RAM and most every I/O port you could want. There are  four USB 2.0 sockets, SD and microSD slots, HDMI, DVI, RS-232, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11n WiFi and Bluetooth, a pair of 3.5mm audio jacks and S/PDIF out for sound, not to mention JTAG, UART and SPI interfaces for extending the system on your own terms.
