VIA VAB-630 3.5″ SBC

Powered by a 1.0GHz dual core VIA Cortex-A9 SoC, the VIA VAB-630 features advanced multimedia performance, rich I/O and wireless connectivity support, and advanced software development tools for a host of gateway, signage and HMI applications. An optional 10.1” touch panel is also available to accelerate system development times.


Based on a compact 3.5” Single Board Computer (SBC) form factor measuring just 14.6cm x 10.2cm, the VAB-630 comes with a rich array of I/O and connectivity features.


The VIA VAB-630 BSP features Android 5.0 as well as the VIA Smart ETK comprising a number of APIs, including Watchdog Timer (WDT) for safeguarding against system crashes, GPIO and UART access, and a sample app. A full set of software customization services that speed up time to market and minimize development costs is also available.


The functionality of VIA VAB-630 can be further enhanced with the integration of optional wireless communication modules including a combination USB Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module or miniPCIe 3G module. An optional 10.1” LVDS LCD capacitive touch panel is also available in order to facilitate complete system development.


Featuring rich I/O, wireless connectivity and touch panel support in a compact form factor, the VIA VAB-630 provides a flexible platform for developing space saving digital signage, kiosk and HMI systems.
