The QLX pro ministation is a small and (physically) lightweight thin client. It has no serial or parallel ports and there is a single USB port at the front right-hand side. The manufacturer's website (http://www.qlxpro.com/ - vanished when last checked) lists only a single product. This looks like it may be a repackaged version of this product. There is no manufacturing date on the unit but the internal software returns a build date of 05.30.05(CE).
The basic specs for the ministation are:
1280 x 1024 16-bit colour
1 x USB?.?
Kybd & mouse
Dimensions W x H x D 16.8cm x 3cm x 13cm
The unit uses a small external power unit rated at 5V @2A
As you can see from the photograph the ministation is based on an Altera Cyclone Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) - an EP1C12. There is obviously great potential for repurposing with such a flexible device - but it is not trivial! As yet I haven't delved further into this thin client.
