Overview

VIA AMOS-820 Fanless Industrial PC

The VIA AMOS-820 is a rugged ultra-compact solution for a broad spectrum of easy-to-assemble, fanless system designs for a wide variety of industrial automation, transportation, HMI, and energy management applications.


Hardware

With the choice of either a 1.0GHz quad core NXP i.MX 6Quad ARM Cortex-A9 SoC or the superior graphics and memory performance of a 1.0GHz NXP i.MX 6QuadPlus Cortex-A9 SoC, the VIA AMOS-820  is ideal for even the most computing-intensive of environments.

A completely fanless system measuring 150mm (W) x 46mm (H) x 108mm (D), the VIA AMOS-820 features a ruggedized design able to withstand a wide operating temperature range from -20°C up to 70°C, while offering extremely low power consumption of a mere 7W under typical operation. In addition to 1GB DDR3 SDRAM and 4GB eMMC Flash, the system comes with a rich array of I/O and connectivity features, including two COM ports, one DIO port, two CAN bus ports, three USB 2.0 ports, one HDMI port, one composite RCA jack, and one GigaLAN port. Optional 3G, Wi-Fi, and PoE (Power over Ethernet) support is also available through on-board USB pin-headers or the miniPCIe slot.

Software

The VIA AMOS-820 Android BSP features Android 6.0 (NXP i.MX 6QuadPlus SoC) or Android 5.0 (NXP i.MX 6Quad SoC) 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-820 Linux BSP includes the modifications and user guide to create a system image including kernel (4.1.15) and bootloader source codes for the NXP i.MX 6QuadPlus SoC or kernel (3.14.28) and bootloader source codes for the NXP i.MX 6Quad SoC.

A full set of Android and Linux software customization services that speed up time to market and minimize development costs are also available.

Applications

Combining high performance and low power consumption with a ruggedized ultra-compact design able to withstand a wide operating temperature range, the VIA AMOS-820 provides the ideal solution for even the most demanding embedded computing environments.

With its flexible I/O connectivity options and advanced software development tools, the system can be easily customized for a broad spectrum of applications ranging from industrial automation and transportation to HMI, and energy management applications.
