VIA announces Nano-ITX board using VIA VX800 chipset
Press release, August 18; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Tuesday 19 August 2008]

VIA Technologies announced the 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, offering system designers a balance of miniaturization and uncompromising functionality.

The 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 DirectX 9 graphics core and excellent hardware accelerated video playback, this compact, low heat, power-efficient board is the ultimate solution for designing low heat, compact systems.

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, which can save space, while the external CMOS battery allows flexible, efficient placement within the chassis.

The VIA Epia N700 is equipped with the latest VIA VX800 media system processor, an all-in-one, highly integrated digital media IGP (integrated graphics processor) chipset featuring the latest video, graphics and connectivity performance in a single chip. Measuring just 33x33mm, the VIA VX800 features an integrated VIA Chrome 9 graphics core with full DirectX 9 support and the VIA Chromotion video engine.

Security can be augmented by enabling the VIA PadLock Security Engine, a hardware based security technology that provides the latest military-grade encryption and protection with the world's fastest x86 security engine.

The VIA Epia N700 board is available now for developers, and will be available through authorized distributors by mid-September.
