VIA AMOS-825 In-Vehicle System

A completely fanless system with a ruggedized design, the VIA AMOS-825 measures just 15.5mm (W) x 48.1mm (H) x 103.3mm (D), and supports a wide operating temperature range from 0°C ~ 60°C, a wide voltage input from 9-36V, and ignition-controlled quick boot.

Its highly-efficient design affords an extremely low power consumption of just 7W under typical operation. In addition to 1GB DDR3 memory and 16GB eMMC Flash storage, the system has a rich array of I/O and connectivity features, dual CAN/COM, GPIO, USB 2.0, Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Its SCSI 50-pin D-sub connector minimizes the amount of system cabling required.


The VIA AMOS-825 Android EVK package features Android 6.0 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. A full set of Android software customization services that speed up time to market and minimize development costs are also available. The VIA AMOS-825 is also Microsoft Azure Certified for IoT.
