Meeting customer's requirements for connectivity and versatility, the VIA EPIA LT mainboard, featuring the VIA CX700 system media processor, offers a number of innovative features for the fast-growing x86-based embedded market. Boasting the market-leading ultra low power consumption 1.5GHz or fanless 1.0GHz VIA C7 processors, the VIA EPIA LT platform provides typically exceptional performance per watt and comes with extensive I/O including two LAN ports and native support for two LVDS panels, four COM ports, a PCI slot and up to six USB 2.0 ports. Additionally, project-based customers are able to opt for a VIA CX700M2-based version that offers TV-out functionality.
Comprehensive digital multi-media experience is achieved with VIA's UniChrome Pro II IGP integrated graphics processor featuring 2D/3D graphics and MPEG-2 video decoding acceleration, while the VIA Vinyl Multi-channel HD audio chip provides an exceptional listening experience. Additionally, the boards will support the forthcoming MFX module for system security, energy efficiency and data protection, featuring key storage, wake-up and event logging functions.
Supporting up to 1GB of 533MHz DDR2 memory, the ultra efficient VIA V4 bus interface drives rich connection alternatives. With both dual LVDS support and two 10/100 fast Ethernet modules, with a Gigabit option, the VIA EPIA LT-Series is tailor-made for key embedded applications such as high end Point of Sales and digital signage systems, as well as many other networked applications.
