VIA EPIA MS-Series Mini-ITX Board
Providing greater design flexibility for flat panel and telematics digital entertainment developers, the VIA EPIA MS mainboard redefines low profile platforms with its unique layout that does away with bulky I/O ports. Integrating all the connectivity and expandability available on other VIA EPIA Mini-ITX mainboards, the VIA EPIA MS introduces an array of onboard pin headers for TV-out connections, up to six USB 2.0 ports and 6-Channel surround sound, allowing system designers to place connectors at easily accessible positions. Additionally, the use of pin headers allow for lower profile designs than a standard PC I/O plate.
The VIA EPIA MS is available with the fanless 1.0GHz or 800MHz VIA Eden® ESP processors for ultra low power consumption and quiet operation, or the 1.2GHz VIA C3® processor for slightly more demanding applications. All available processors on the VIA EPIA MS incorporate the on-die VIA Padlock® Hardware Security Suite that can supply state-of-the-art random number generation and AES cryptography to security programs. The VIA EPIA MS provides enhanced digital performance through the VIA CLE266 chipset featuring integrated 2D/3D graphics and an MPEG-2 accelerator. High data transfer speeds are achieved through the sizable memory bandwidth of DDR266 SDRAM and ATA-133 support.
An array of storage and connectivity options are provided, including onboard CompactFlash and a PCI slots. The VIA EPIA MS also offers support for 6 USB 2.0 connectors, 6-channel audio, as well as S-Video and RCA TV-Out (NTSC & PAL) and 10/100 Mbps Fast Ethernet. The VIA EPIA is also compatible with Microsoft® Windows® and Linux operating systems and offers support for a number of embedded LCD panels.
