EPIA-M840 (EOL)

  • Active and Passive cooling configuration
  • Integrated VIA C-9 HC3 DX9 3D/2D graphics with MPEG-2 and WMV9 decoding acceleration
  • Support for VGA and dual channel LVDS displays
  • VIA Nano® E-Series processor
  • Designed for advanced Industrial Automation, Kiosk and HMI applications

Overview

VIA EPIA-M840 Mini-ITX Board

The VIA EPIA-M840 is available in both active and passive cooling configurations with a choice of either a fanless 1.2GHz or a performance oriented 1.6GHz VIA Nano® E-Series processor. The VIA VX800 media system processor supports 2 of DDR2 DIMM system memory and provides DirectX® 9 integrated graphics, crystal clear HD audio and Gigabit networking and advanced video acceleration for MPEG-2, WMV9 and VC1 video formats, plus a VMR capable HD video processor.


Hardware

The VIA EPIA-M840 packs the latest VIA Nano® E-Series processor, dual Gigabit LAN, eight COM ports and two dual channel 24-bit LVDS channels making an ideal solution for a range of embedded applications including the latest industrial automation, kiosk, POI and HMI applications.

Rear panel I/O includes dual Gigabit LAN ports, PS/2 support, a VGA port, two RS-232 5v/12v selectable COM ports, four USB 2.0 ports and audio jacks. On board pin headers provide 2 x dual channel 24-bit LVDS support (including backlight control), an additional six COM ports, a further two USB ports, LPT support, Digital I/O, SIR and LPC headers, a PCIe x4 slot and Compact Flash socket.
