VIA To Make Southbride For Godson Board

VIA was recently contracted by the Chinese Academy of Science (CAS) of mainland China to supply south-bridge chips for a low-priced computer built on the institute`s “Godson” microprocessors. CAS rolled out a RMB1,599 (US$ 207 at US$ 1:RMB7.8) computer built around “Godson 2” microprocessors last year. The computer runs on Linux OS and is a stripped type ideal for the Internet connection. VIA hopes to convince CAS to buy its higher value-added products including microprocessors after contracting its north-bridge chips. However, some fear that STMicroelectronics would become a hamper to VIA`s hope since Godson`s major core technologies are developed by the European chipmaker.
