VX800 Media System Processor

VIA_VX800_Chipset_LogoThe highly integrated single-chip VIA VX800 combines state-of-the-art x86 computing capabilities with low power requirements in the size of 33 mm x 33 mm for creating performance small form factor designs. The VX800 integrates a high performance DDR2 memory controller (supporting up to 667 MHz), 800/533/400 MHz FSB CPU interface, PCI Express, SATA (3Gbps), EIDE, USB 2.0, HD audio, and stunning DirectX® 9.0 3D graphics.

The DirectX® 9.0 3D graphics engine, unified video decoding accelerator, and high definition audio controller enables a totally immersive experience. Next generation devices can take advantage of its multimedia capabilities to create interactive graphics, mesmerizing video, and engulfing audio. With the unique integrated and advanced video processing capabilities, the VX800 can handle 3D applications, MPEG-2 or WMV9/VC1 video stream playback while reducing the workload and the power consumption of the processor.

Complementing the VIA Nano®, C7® or Eden® processor, the VX800 assists in reducing overall system power consumption with a maximum power envelope of just 5.5 watts. Power consumption is further reduced through the advanced power management features that vary its power consumption according to its workload.

The VX800 provides diversified connection options for various applications. In addition to the high speed USB 2.0 interface, VX800 supports low power interfaces including SDIO, UART, and SPI for power sensitive applications.

The VX800 is optimized for a broad range of embedded computing requiring enhanced graphics capabilities. Along with producing dazzling graphics and smooth video, connectivity and display flexibility, the VX800 performance chipset supports an unmatched feature set while only requiring a small footprint.
