VIA Announces First Nano-ITX Board with VIA VX800 IGP
VIA Technologies today announced the VIA EPIA N700 Nano-ITX board, designed as a complete solution for compact industrial PC and embedded automation devices. Featuring a 1.5GHz VIA C7 or 500MHz VIA Eden processor, the VIA EPIA N700 is the first Nano-ITX board to feature the latest VIA VX800 media system processor.
Measuring 33x33mm, the VIA VX800 features an integrated VIA Chrome 9 graphics core with full DirectX 9 support and the VIA Chromotion video engine which provides video acceleration for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV9, VC1 and DiVX video formats, plus a VMR-capable HD video processor. The VIA VX800 includes an integrated multi-configuration 24-bit, dual channel LVDS transmitter, enabling display connection to embedded panels.
The compact VIA EPIA N700 uses additional onboard ports to make system design of compact PCs easier. Two S-ATA ports, a Gigabit LAN port, a COM port, two USB 2.0 ports and a VGA port are provided, with additional COM, LVDS and IDE support available through onboard pin-headers. With the VX800 offering an integrated DX9 graphics core and hardware accelerated video playback, this compact, low heat, power-efficient board is well-suited for designing low heat, compact systems.
According to the company, the VIA EPIA N700 is the lowest profile Nano-ITX board ever. The addition of onboard VGA, USB, COM and Gigabit network ports on this compact board helps to reduce cluttered cabling, adding improved air-flow for enhanced stability in always-on systems and a further reduced system foot-print. The VIA EPIA N700 requires only a single 4-pin power cable as its sole power source, again saving space, while the external CMOS battery allows flexible, efficient placement within the chassis.
