I wanted to use a tiny Linux computer to read data from I²C bus. I knew there was Picotux, and I was thingking about buying one.

enter image description here

But the website is down, so I guess there's no Picotux anymore. :(

Since Picotux is gone, are there alternatives around, that house a Linux computer in a tiny package, such as Picotux?

I need a tiny package, it should run on batteries and consume little power, and have a I²C or USB bus available. Bonus points if it has WLAN (which Picotux had as an option).

It should be able to run a webserver (a tiny one, not a behemoth as Apache) and RRDtool if possible.

Picotux was available at the now defunct website: http://www.picotux.com/


The Digi Connect ME is a similar device.

With respect to software development options, in addition to NET+OS, the Digi Connect ME 9210 now also provides a complete Embedded Linux development environment with an Eclipse based IDE.
