DreamPlug is a compact and low power plug computer running Debian Linux, based[1] on Marvell's Kirkwood 88F6281[2] ARM9E SoC. It is intended to be a device that could act as a web server, a printing server or any other network service. It uses micro-SD internal storage and an external Secure Digital slot, but also offers USB ports and a Serial ATA port to connect external disks.[3]

Improvements over the GuruPlug[edit]

The DreamPlug is an evolution of the GuruPlug, based on the SheevaPlug platform.

Apart from internal processor changes, the DreamPlug features a new case design, second Gigabit Ethernet, eSATA, SD slot (and internal microSD slot replacing the internal NAND), audio in/out, and a removable PSU.[4]

Early version of DreamPlug has 802.11 b/g Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR. It is also shipped with 2 GB microSD card.[5] Current version has 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 3.0. It is also shipped with 4 GB microSD card.[6]
