The MicroClient JrSX represents the least expensive x86 compatible computer solution available. The MicroClient JrSX uses the revolutionary System on Chip, the Vortex86SX, that integrates a complete computer on a single CPU. The MicroClient JrSX is not a general purpose device, because it does not have floating point support. However, it is an extremely cost effective computer to deploy standalone embedded applications.
