Tadpole Technology was a manufacturer of rugged (military specification) UNIX workstations and thin client laptops and lightweight servers. Tadpole was based in Cupertino, California.
Tadpole laptops mainly used either SPARC- or x86-based microprocessors. The SPARC-based SPARCbook laptops were sold with the Solaris operating systems, and their x86-based laptops with SUSE Linux. Microsoft Windows is optional.
In 1998, Tadpole acquired RDI Computer Corporation of Carlsbad, California for $6 million.
Tadpole was later bought by defense contractor General Dynamics, in 2005.
