VIA Announces New Nano-ITX, Mini-ITX Boards

VIA Technologies today announced the latest VIA EPIA-M800 Mini-ITX and VIA EPIA-N800 Nano-ITX boards featuring 64-bit, 1.6GHz or fanless 1.2GHz VIA Nano processors.

The VIA Nano processor is based on the 64-bit, superscalar 'Isaiah' architecture, boasting as much as a four-fold performance boost over VIA C7 and VIA Eden processors while remaining within a similar thermal envelope. The VIA EPIA-M800 and VIA EPIA-N800 represent an easy upgrade path for current system and device designs based on VIA EPIA-M700 and VIA EPIA-N700 boards.

The key to the multimedia performance of both the VIA EPIA-M800 and VIA EPIA-N800 is the VIA VX800 unified chipset. It features a VIA Chrome9 IGP for DirectX 9.0 3D graphics, up to six channels of VIA Vinyl HD Audio and the VIA Chromotion video engine, providing advanced hardware video acceleration for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV9 and VC-1 video, plus a VMR capable HD video processor.

The display technologies are supported via a front-panel DVI port with pin headers for an additional DVI or HDMI port through a daughterboard. Support for 18-bit TTL signal output as well as a digital video input is available through pin headers supporting CCIR–656/601/ transport stream video. An S/PDIF connector is also supported.

Storage includes both an IDE port with a shared Compact Flash port, 2 SATA II ports and up to 6 USB2.0 ports, two through onboard connectors. Connectivity comes in the form of dual Gigabit LAN ports on the high speed PCI-Express bus. The VIA EPIA-M800 can withstand a wide temperature range from 0°C to 60°C.

VIA EPIA-N800 Nano-ITX features a 1.3+ GHz VIA Nano processor and the VIA VX800 media system processor. Measuring only 12cm x 12cm, the VIA EPIA N800 features onboard VGA, USB, COM and Gigabit network ports.

Aimed at compact digital display and signage applications the VIA EPIA-N800 offers VGA and a multi-configuration, 24-bit, dual channel LVDS transmitter, enabling display connection to embedded panels. As well as two onboard SATA connectors, expansion options include a miniPCI slot, with additional COM and USB ports and PS/2 support available through pin headers. The DRAM slot has been relocated to the bottom side of the board for easy access and maintenance.

Samples of both the VIA EPIA-M800 and VIA EPIA-N800 are available to project customers now. Both boards include product manufacturing support of at least three years.
