Overview

VIA EPIA EK-Series Mini-ITX Board

The VIA EPIA EK Mini-ITX embedded board is available with the 1GHz or fanless 800MHz VIA Luke CoreFusion™ processor platform and boasts a rich array of connectivity and digital media features to make possible a new generation of bandwidth efficient network devices focused on digital media applications.

Integrated into the VIA Luke CoreFusion™ processor platform is a host of digital media features including the VIA C-Pro graphics processor with MPEG-2/4 hardware decoding acceleration to enable smooth playback and transmission of digital media, as well as the VIA Vinyl VT1618 6-channel audio with VIA Smart5.1 Surround sound. Hardware security is available too, with the VIA PadLock® Security Engine. Designed to offer real-time military-grade protection of data stored and exchanged, the VIA PadLock Security Engine enables developers to offload the computational process involved in complex encryption algorithms, freeing processor loading to handle more data faster.

Offering a flexible upgrade path from previous generations of VIA EPIA Mini-ITX mainboards, the VIA EPIA EK Mini-ITX mainboard sets new standards for flexibility and connectivity with dual LAN support that includes the option for a single Gigabit Ethernet port, as well as up to four COM and eight USB ports, a printer port, a PCI port, and Digital I/O (4 GPI/GPO). The mainboard also boasts both Serial and Parallel ATA support and utilizes DDR400 memory.

The VIA EPIA EK Mini-ITX has a maximum power consumption of just 19W, and is fully compatible with all Mini-ITX, FlexATX and MicroATX chassis and associated accessories such as the new VIA 120W DC-DC converter, external PCI riser card, VIA DVI interface and VIA LVDS panel support module, and is compatible with Microsoft® Windows® 2000/XP, XPe and CE, as well as Linux, making it the ideal platform for developers to create energy efficient always-on network based devices for digital media applications.
