Sizing up the ITX form factors
VIA makes an even smaller ITX form factor
VIA Technologies today announced a
new small form factor
that is smaller than its miniscule nano-ITX form factor. The new
pico-ITX form factor
measures in at 3.94 inches wide and 2.83 inches deep – 50% smaller than a nano-ITX motherboard. VIA previously demonstrated the pico-ITX-sized
at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year.
VIA has yet to release a product based on the nano-ITX form factor, however, VIA has released its VT6047 pico-ITX reference board. The VT6047 reference board packs VIA’s V4 bus compatible nanoBGA2 processors such as the C7 and Eden. VIA C7 or Eden processors up to 1.5 GHz are available on VT6047 pico-ITX reference boards. These processors feature 128K of L1 cache and 128K of L2 cache.
Fusing the platform together is the
single-chip core-logic. The VIA VX700 delivers UniChrome Pro II AGP graphics with integrated LVDS and DVI interfaces. The UniChrome Pro II AGP graphics core features MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and WMV9 hardware acceleration. VIA pairs the UniChrome Pro II AGP graphics core with an optional VT1625M television encoder for composite and S-Video output capabilities.
Audio is provided by VIA’s Vinyl Audio VT1708A high-definition audio codec with 8-channels of analog audio output and S/PDIF. The VT6047 board lacks physical audio outputs onboard, however, VIA provides a front audio header for audio connections.
Integrated PATA and SATA controllers handle storage connectivity. VIA provides one UDMA 133/100/66/33 ATA controller on the VT6047 reference board. Due to small size constraints, the VT6047 features a 44-pin right-angle IDE connector, which typically graces notebook devices. One SATA 3.0 Gbps port is available for additional storage connectivity.
Memory expansion capabilities of the VT6047 reference board are limited to one SO-DIMM socket. The SO-DIMM accommodates DDR2 -400/533 memory up to capacities of 1GB.
Other notable features of the VT6047 reference board include an integrated VT6106S 10/100 Mbps Ethernet controller and USB 2.0 headers for up to four ports.
