VIA Technologies has developed a version of its Nano-ITX board for industrial and embedded applications in environments with extreme temperatures.
The fanless VIA EPIA N700-10EW is guaranteed to maintain absolute stability at temperatures ranging from -20o to 70˚C for environments that traditionally inhibit x86 computing. These include specialized industrial applications where machinery can create intense operating temperatures, as well as extreme climate scenarios like desert, mountain and high altitude environments.
“By expanding our range of EPIA products to include extended temperature products, VIA is addressing the broader needs of our extensive customer base,” said Daniel Wu, Vice President of VIA Embedded, VIA Technologies, Inc. “Extreme thermal competency usually comes at a premium, the VIA EPIA N700-10EW will help to significantly lower that barrier.”
The fanless VIA EPIA N700-10EW is capable of maintaining system stability in extreme conditions because of the high quality components selected for its construction. Powered by a power-efficient 1GHz VIA Eden ULV processor and the latest VIA VX800 media system processor, the EPIA N700-10EW also boasts completely solid state capacitors.
All VIA EPIA N700-10EW boards are rigorously tested for compatibility and reliability prior to shipping and are bundled with special wide temperature-verified system memory modules to ensure complete system stability.
Measuring only 12cm x 12cm, the VIA EPIA N700-10EW Nano-ITX board supports up to 2GB of DDR2 system memory. Two S-ATA connectors, USB 2.0, COM and PCIe-based Gigabit LAN ports are available through onboard I/O while a Type I Compact Flash port is also included. Expansion includes a Mini-PCI slot, an IDE port plus additional COM, USB and PS/2 support through pin-headers.
At the heart of the VIA EPIA N700-10EW the VIA VX800 media system processor offers an integrated DirectX9 graphics core and hardware accelerated video playback for MPEG-2, MPEG-4, WMV9 and VC1 video formats. An on-board VGA port is provided along with a 24-bit, dual channel LVDS transmitter, enabling display connection to embedded panels.
