Overview

VIA AMOS-800 Fanless Industrial PC

The VIA AMOS-800 is a low power, ultra-compact solution that provides a robust, easy-to-assemble fanless system for a wide variety of industrial embedded applications.


Hardware

Measuring just 150mm (W) x 46mm (H) x 108mm (D), the VIA AMOS-800 features a ruggedized design able to withstand a wide operating temperature range of -40°C up to 80°C while offering extremely low power consumption of a mere 3.14W under typical operation.

Powered by an 800MHz NXP i.MX537 Cortex-A8 SoC, the VIA AMOS-800 comes with 1GB DDR3 SDRAM and 4GB of eMMC Flash onboard and integrates a rich array of I/O features, including one COM port, one DIO port, and one CAN port, as well as one VGA port, one HDMI port, one 10/100 LAN port, and three USB 2.0 ports. An optional WiFi USB module is available, which can be supported through one on-board USB pin-header.

Software

The VIA AMOS-800 Android EVK features Android 2.3 as well as the VIA Smart ETK comprising a number of APIs, including Watchdog Timer (WDT) for safeguarding against system crashes, GPIO access, COM port access, RTC for auto-power on, and a sample app.

The VIA AMOS-800 Linux BSP includes the modifications and user guide to create a system image based on the Freescale Linux BSP 11.09.01. A full set of Android and Linux software customization services that speed up time to market and minimize development costs is also available.

Applications

With its ultra low power consumption, extended operating temperature range, and ruggedized design, the VIA AMOS 800 provides a robust solution for the most demanding embedded computing application and environments.

Flexible I/O connectivity options and advanced software development tools mean that the system can be easily customized for a broad spectrum of applications, including industrial automation, transportation, HMI, and energy management.
