DPF design runs Linux

Last week at CES, Chumby demonstrated a WiFi-enabled digital photo frame (DPF) hardware-software reference design developed with Marvell Semiconductor. The reference design combines Marvell's recently announced PXA168 system-on-chip and 802.11 b/g WiFi chipset with Chumby's Linux-based "push" info-tainment stack and website.

The Marvell/Chumby reference design appears to be similar to another collaborative DPF design Chumby announced last week with Samsung, which is contributing its ARM11-based S3C6410 system-on-chip (SoC) to the picture-frame design. Like the Samsung collaboration, the Marvell design uses the same Linux-based software stack first used in Chumby's digital alarm clock. The Chumby device (pictured) began shipping last February for $180, and features hackable, open-source Linux software, and even hackable hardware and "outerware.
