VIA Pico-ITX Goes Low Profile, Integrates Power Supply
VIA Technologies today announced the VIA EPIA P700 Pico-ITX board designed for ultra compact machines.
Now featuring native S-ATA II support, Gigabit LAN, and support for GPIO, SM bus and LPC devices, the 10cm x 7.2cm VIA EPIA P700 is based on the VIA VX700 unified digital media IGP chipset and is powered by a 1GHz VIA C7 or fanless 500MHz VIA Eden ULV processor. An integrated power adapter coupled with the 5-volt S-SATA power cable negates the need for a separate power daughterboard, saving considerable space for ultra compact systems.
Linear on-board pin-header placement means developers can use a single cable to connect various I/O devices and reduce cable clutter. Flexible battery placement is also geared towards improved miniaturization.
Two companion boards simplify design implementation and product testing. The P700-A board features an RJ45 port, a VGA port and a COM port, while the P700-B sports four USB ports and three audio jacks for multi-channel surround sound. The two companion boards fit with the linear pin-headers on either side of the VIA EPIA P700 to enable ultra low profile devices.
VIA EPIA P700 Pico-ITX boards are available now for developers.
