Overview

VIA EPIA-P720 Pico-ITX Board

The VIA EPIA-P720 is an incredibly compact board, based on the 10 cm x 7.2 cm Pico-ITX form factor. Taking advantage of the latest VIA VX855 media system processor, the VIA EPIA-P720 offers smooth playback of the most demanding video formats at high resolutions of up to 1080p, making it a great choice for a range of devices including today’s next-generation digital interactive devices and digital signage.


Hardware


On board pin headers provide support for an additional of 4 x USB 2.0 ports, an LPC connector, SMBus connector, PS/2 support, audio jacks, LVDS, 4 pairs of DIO and two UART ports.

The VIA VX855 unified digital media IGP chipset provides hardware acceleration for H.264, VC1, WMV and MPEG-2 codecs, placing almost no strain on the board’s fanless 1.0GHz VIA Eden® ULV processor, leaving it free to focus on other tasks. The VIA VX855 also includes the VIA C-9 HCM 3D integrated graphics core boasts full DirectX® 9.0 support and a 128-bit 2D engine with hardware rotation capability.

The VIA EPIA-P720 uses a specially designed I/O add-on-board, the VIA P720-A, adds a VGA port, a Gigabit LAN port and two USB 2.0 ports to the boards onboard HDMI port. The VIA Vinyl HD audio codec provides 6 channel high definition audio. Storage is provided in the shape of an onboard 44-pin IDE connector and one SATA port.
