Handheld Reference Design Unveiled

Intrinsyc Software, Inc. said Thursday that its Cerf PDA reference design for handhelds is now available.

The company said the handheld is aimed at applications in which widely-used handhelds are too general for specialized applications. It said the reference design can be specialized for use in specialized consumer applications as well as for in-vehicle, data collection, and test and measurement applications.

The design can be customized with features such as wired and wireless local area networking and Bluetooth capabilities and location-based services. It specifically includes support for 802.11b wireless networks, the company said. It optionally can have a rugged housing for industrial applications.

The device is available for Windows CE and Linux. It uses an Intel StrongARM-1110 microprocessor and includes a 3.8-inch color display. The company provided no information about pricing.
