Linux Advanced Radio Terminal (LART)
Build your own mini computer
In 1998, as part of the MMC project, researchers at the Technical University of Delft, the Netherlands, started to design a small but powerful computer system for wireless multimedia experiments. The requirements: low power consumption, inexpensive and with plenty of computing power.The acronym MMC means Mobile Multimedia Communication and embraces a multidiscipline project at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands. One of the results of the research programme was the LART computer which was designed simply because no ready to go computer system could be found that could meet the requirements posed by the MMC project. Since then, LART has grown into a full-blown mini computer with its own Internet website, extension boards and software.
