The VIA C7® & VIA C7®-D processors, built on the VIA CoolStream™ architecture, are designed to extend the digital lifestyle by combining robust performance, with ultra low power consumption, highly efficient heat dissipation, and longevity support. They can be combined with a rich selection of VIA companion chips for a balanced platform for selective system design.
VIA C7® processors also feature VIA PadLock with the Advanced Cryptography Engine delivering the world’s fastest AES encryption. This hardware-based data encryption offers data encryption on the fly, an essential tool in content protection and system security.
Available in two models running at speeds of 1.0GHz (VIA C7®) and 1.6GHz (VIA C7®-D), VIA C7® processors are manufactured using 90nm process technology, and feature a VIA NanoBGA2 package of 21mm x 21mm making them fully pin-to-pin compatible with VIA Nano® E-Series, VIA Eden® X2, VIA Nano® X2 E-Series, and VIA QuadCore E-Series processors.
