Measuring a mere 10cm x 7.2cm, 75% smaller than the Mini-ITX form factor, the Pico-ITX form factor was developed by VIA as part of its “Small is Beautiful” strategy to enable system developers and OEMs to create smaller, lighter, and quieter devices than ever before — opening up a new world of possibilities for embedded IoT, and M2M applications.
With the choice of either ARM or x86 based platforms combined with rich feature sets, low power consumption, and cutting-edge functionality and performance, VIA Embedded Pico-ITX boards are ideal for a myriad of embedded design applications, including digital signage, industrial automation, healthcare, HMI, thin clients, and transportation.
Based on market-leading VIA and Freescale SoCs , VIA VAB Series Pico-ITX boards combine rich I/O connectivity with exceedingly low power consumption to offer an unrivaled choice of ultra-reliable, cost-efficient ARM platforms optimized to meet the power, performance, and feature requirements for even the most demanding industrial, signage, HMI, consumer, and other embedded applications.
