EPIA SP-Series Mini-ITX Board
The VIA EPIA SP mainboard introduces the VIA CN400 Digital Media chipset to the Mini-ITX form factor for the first time, extending the feature set of the VIA EPIA Mini-ITX family to include support for DDR266/333/400 and even greater digital media performance on the rapidly emerging new generation of smart digital entertainment devices such as PVRs, set top boxes, and media centers. Targeting x86 consumer electronics devices, the C-Motion CE Video Display Engine of the S3 Graphics C-Pro IGP graphics core features hardware-based MPEG-2 decoding and MPEG-4 acceleration for smooth playback of the most popular video formats,together with Adaptive De-Interlacing and Video De-Blocking advanced video rendering functions for unequalled image crispness.
The VIA EPIA SP features the VIA C3® processor based on the C5P Nehemiah core with its integrated VIA PadLock® Advanced Cryptography Engine (ACE) for high-speed encryption and decryption of the US government approved Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). The C5P Nehemiah core includes two VIA PadLock Random Number Generators (RNGs) that provide high quality entropy for security applications, such as key generation or hard disk scrubbing, without relying on precious CPU cycles to generate random numbers through software.
Additionally, the VIA EPIA SP supports an impressive range of high-speed storage and connectivity options, such as Serial-ATA, IEEE 1394 (Firewire), USB 2.0 and 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet. The VIA EPIA SP also offers support for various LVDS embedded LCD panels, has a PCI slot for expandability options, and is compatible with a full range of Mini-ITX power supplies and chassis, as well as FlexATX or bigger enclosures.
