VIA Launches Custom IoT Platform Design Service

Provides fastest & most flexible path for the design & manufacturing of application-specific IoT systems & devices

Taipei, Taiwan, January 18, 2017 – VIA Technologies, Inc, today announced the launch of its VIA Custom IoT Platform Design Service to enable customers to accelerate the development of application-specific IoT systems and devices tailored to meet their exact usage requirements.

The VIA Custom IoT Platform Design Service provides a one-stop custom system design solution that covers all steps of the development process, including the definition of the core system specifications, rapid prototyping, hardware and software development, I/O and wireless connectivity integration, and management of the path2production.

As part of this process, we work every step of the way with the customer to select the appropriate form factor, identify the key components such as the ARM SoC, operating system, storage & memory, and determine the I/O & wireless connectivity features, in order to ensure that the system meets the precise performance, power consumption, and functionality needs of their target IoT application. Specialist chassis design, middleware and application development, and peripheral validation and sourcing services are also available to enable customers to further accelerate time to production.

“The VIA Custom IoT Platform Design Service provides the fastest and most flexible path for designing and manufacturing new application-specific IoT systems and devices,” commented Richard Brown, VP of International Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. “By leveraging our deep silicon design expertise and rich embedded hardware and software development capabilities, we can enable our customers to transform their innovative ideas into ultra-reliable systems optimized for their specific IoT deployment requirements.”

The VIA Custom IoT Platform Design Service is one of a growing number of flexible development pathways that VIA offers for accelerating IoT system innovation. These include an extensive range of flexible and ultra-reliable VIA Enterprise IoT boards and systems optimized for a wide range of industrial, transportation, and embedded applications, and VIA IoT Studio system platforms targeted at emerging smart home, smart education, and smart business segments.
“Standardized ‘one-size-fits-all’ hardware platforms are no longer sufficient for harnessing the full potential of new IoT applications,” concluded Brown. “Our multiple development pathways provide our customers with the greatest flexibility in optimizing their systems to meet their exact requirements without having to compromise.”
