Via Technologies has unveiled what it calls the worlds lowest power x86 platform that comes in pico-ITX form-factor. The product is aimed at designers of various embedded solutions and provides uncompromisingly compact, highly integrated board.

“The introduction of the Via Epia PX5000EG elevates the Via Epia range of innovative embedded solutions to new heights of thermal and energy efficiency in an extremely miniaturized form factor. The Via Epia Pico-ITX form-factor continues to evolve, addressing the embedded industry's needs for greater efficiency and miniaturization,” said Daniel Wu, vice president of Via embedded platform division.

The Via Epia PX5000EG uses a fanless 500MHz Via Eden ULV processor with a maximum power draw of only one watt and supports up to 1GB of DDR2 system memory. The Via VX700 system media processor adds Via UniChrome Pro II integrated 3D/2D graphics core with MPEG-2/-4 and WMV9 hardware decoding acceleration and pin support for LVDS, DVI and VGA display configurations.

The VIA EPIA PX5000EG has both onboard Serial ATA and Parallel ATA connectors as well as an integrated 100/10 Fast Ethernet port. Connectors are included to support PS/2 keyboard and mouse, 1 multimedia connector to support external TV-out, a video capture port interface & LPC interface (add-on card required), 1 audio connector for line-out, line-in, mic-in, S/PDIF in and 5.1 channel audio output and 1 Pico-ITX power connector

The Pico-ITX form factor squeezes a full feature set into a mere 10cm x 7.2cm, which virtually means complete system that can fit onto palm of a hand.

System designers of embedded automation and industrial control devices can now take advantage of a full x86 system that fits neatly into the most extreme space constrained, heat sensitive environments.
