VIA has introduced a new board which you can use to build a low-power, small form-factor PC or embedded device. The VAB-600 is a Pico-ITX board which measures just 3.9″ x 2.8″ and which features an 800 MHz VIA Wondermedia WM8950 ARM Cortex-A9 processor with Mali-400 graphics.
Clearly a system with that chip isn’t likely to replace your Windows desktop PC anytime soon. But the board includes 1GB of built-in RAM and 4GB of storage, and should be able to handle Google Android or basic Linux applications.
The board features a USB 2.0 port, two mini USB ports, GPIO pins, a mini PCIe slot, an Ethernet jack, and optional support for a touchscreen, SIM card, 3G, or WiFi.
You can contact VIA’s sales team for information on prices — the company doesn’t yet offer this model in its online store.
