Lica thin client

I got this thing in september 2006 quite cheap but without any technical documents. Between october 2006 and august 2007 it served well for FLI4L until it had to be abandoned due to a failure of the power supply.

The technical data:

  • CPU: Geode 266 MHz, cooled passive
  • RAM: 128 MB PC100 SDRAM
  • Connectors: PS/2 keyboard/mouse, VGA, 2xRS232, parallel, 2xUSB, LAN, audio
  • One free PCI/ISA slot
  • IDE interface
  • Slot for a “Disk-On-Chip” module, which was also provided and from which a mini Linux with an X server and a Citrix client boots
