Pico ITX s Worlds Smallest x86 Board From VIA

VIA announced the VIA VT6047 Pico-ITX
form factor reference design, the smallest full-featured x86 mainboard in the
industry designed for a new world of ultra compact embedded PC systems and
appliances. The Mini-ITX mainboard, at 17cm x 17cm, which recently
celebrated its 5th anniversary as an industry standard form factor with wide
market adoption, was followed by the Nano-ITX form factor at 12cm x 12cm,
exactly 50% of the size of the Mini-ITX. Now, the Pico-ITX, at 10cm x 7.2cm and
50% of the size of the Nano-ITX form factor, truly embodies VIA’s "Small is
Beautiful" technology design strategy of shrinking the form factor to drive the
x86 platform into ever smaller systems and whole new device categories.

VIA Technologies, Inc, a leading innovator and developer of silicon chip
technologies and PC platform solutions, today announced the VIA VT6047 Pico-ITX
form factor reference design, the smallest full-featured x86 mainboard in the
industry designed for a new world of ultra compact embedded PC systems and
appliances.

The Pico-ITX form factor is the latest advance in VIA’s proven record on
platform miniaturization. The Mini-ITX mainboard, at 17cm x 17cm, which recently
celebrated its 5th anniversary as an industry standard form factor with wide
market adoption, was followed by the Nano-ITX form factor at 12cm x 12cm,
exactly 50% of the size of the Mini-ITX. Now, the Pico-ITX, at 10cm x 7.2cm and
50% of the size of the Nano-ITX form factor, truly embodies VIA’s "Small is
Beautiful" technology design strategy of shrinking the form factor to drive the
x86 platform into ever smaller systems and whole new device categories.

Leveraging VIA’s extensive expertise in miniaturization at the silicon level
through major advances in power efficiency, thermal management and feature
integration, the VIA VT6047 Pico-ITX mainboard was designed to be powered by one
of VIA’s energy efficient processor platforms, such as the VIA C7 or fanless VIA
Eden processor in the 21mm x 21mm nanoBGA2 package, combined with feature-rich
VIA system media processors to enable the board to pack a performance punch in a
tiny, low heat, low power package.

"The Pico-ITX represents VIA’s commitment to spearhead x86 innovation through
our proven technology leadership in driving down the platform size," said
Richard Brown, Vice President of Corporate Marketing, VIA Technologies, Inc. "As
with the Mini-ITX and Nano-ITX form factors before it, this new platform has
raised the excitement level among enthusiasts and customers alike, firing the
imagination an almost unlimited range of what were previously impossibly small
systems."

The VIA VT6047 Pico-ITX reference design has been successfully demonstrated
during international trade shows this year, including during CES, CeBIT Germany
and Embedded System Conference West. The VIA Platform Solutions Division will
announce the first commercial mainboard based on the Pico-ITX form factor
shortly.
