Eden

VIA_Eden_Embedded_Processor_Logo With its signature fanless operation, the VIA Eden® processor family targets personal, business, industrial and commercial embedded computing devices that require ultra low power consumption, rock solid reliability and compatibility with standard x86 operating systems and software applications. VIA Eden® processors are scalable from 400MHz to 1.5GHz all within a maximum thermal envelope of 7.5 watts, and are available with a diverse range of feature sets that enable PC functionality and connectivity from traditionally single function devices.

The VIA Eden® processor family is available in nanoBGA, nanoBGA2 and EBGA packaging, using 150nm, 130nm and the latest 90nm SOI manufacturing process to deliver leading performance per watt and in fully RoHS compliant packages.

Secure by Design

VIA Eden processors are helping to herald an era of practical pervasive security thanks to the VIA PadLock Security Engine, the world’s fastest x86 security engine in the world featuring the most comprehensive suite of tools for key cryptographic operations.

VIA_PadLock_Logo2Over the last couple of processor core generations, VIA has expanded the hardware security suite integrated directly onto the processor die, starting with the world’s best random number generator (RNG) and AES Encryption Engine in the C5P (Nehemiah) processor core to SHA-1 and SHA-256 hashing for secure message digests, and a hardware based Montgomery Multiplier supporting key sizes up to 32K in length to accelerate public key cryptography, such as RSA™ in the latest C5J (Esther) core. This latest generation also provides NX Execute Protection, providing protection from malicious software such as worms and viruses, and is used in Microsoft® Windows® XP with SP2. Integrating security directly onto the processor die ensures speeds and efficiency many times that available in software, yet with negligible impact on processor performance.
