VIA Pico-ITX motherboard integrates power supply
Press release, June 30; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES

VIA Technologies has announced the VIA Epia P700 Pico-ITX motherboard that couples several features within a streamlined, ultra compact footprint designed for low profile systems, with extended I/O port options through two companion boards.

The board featuring native SATA 3Gb/s support, Gigabit LAN, and support for GPIO, SM bus and LPC devices, and measuring 10×7.2cm 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 5V S-SATA power cable negates the need for a separately powered daughterboard, saving considerable space for ultra compact systems.

The VIA Epia P700 also features two companion boards – 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 seamlessly with the linear pin-headers on either side of the VIA Epia P700 to enable ultra low profile devices.
