VIA Technologies has introduced a new mini-desktop PC based around a Pico-ITX sysem board. The VIA AMOS-3002 measures just 7.8″ x 4.1″ x 1.9″ and it features a rugged case that can handle temperatures between about -4 degrees and 140 degrees depending on the configuration. It’s also vibration and shock tolerance.
The little computer has a 1 GHz VIA Eden X2 processor and VX900H media system or a VIA Nano E-series processor processor. It’s not exactly a speed demon, but these low power chips are designed for embedded systems with fanless designs.
In other words, the VIA AMOS-3002 may look like a nettop or mini-desktop PC, but it’s more likely to be used as a controller for industrial equipment, cash registers, digital signage, or other applications.
On the other hand, the media processor can handle 1080p HD video playback in MPEG-2, WMV9, and H.264 formats, so this system would also make a nice little media center PC.
The system can be used with Windows Embedded, Windows CE, or Linux.
Thanks VIA for introducing the new mini-desktop PC based on an Ultra Compact Fan less Embedded System with EPIA-P900 Pico-ITX Board.This Fanless PC supports 1.0GHz Eden X2 processor,VX900H MSP,comprehensive I/O functions on front and rear panels,Gigabit Ethernet and optional Wi-Fi and 3G networking.
