The RTP (Remote Terminal Peripheral) is a
communications device that will be designed to allow a user to
remotely connect to a server via Ethernet LAN. Once connected
the user will be able to execute basic commands and run such
programs as pine, ytalk, and vi among others.
Because of practicality issues particular emphasis
will be placed on the size of the device. We intend to scale
down as much as possible keeping portability in mind.
The following is a crude outlook of what 396 will
• 40 x 4 Character Liquid
• fabrication of an interface
circuit for PS/2 keyboards
• application of the iChip LAN
embedded TCP/IP internet controller
• 396 final assembly and testing
(device needs to "ping")
496 will see the integration of a wireless data
communication system between "like" RTPs.
• IrDA infrared technology
• unique data communication
• other miscellaneous additions
to be worked out...
• 496 final assembly (device
provides seamless functionality)
