VIA Technologies today announced the VIA ARMOS-800, an ultra-compact, fanless system designed around the tiny VIA VAB-800 Pico-ITX board. The VIA ARMOS-800 provides embedded customers with a ruggedized system that delivers advanced multimedia features in an extremely power efficient design for a diversified range of embedded applications.
Featuring an 800MHz Freescale ARM Cortex-A8 SoC with two integrated GPUs for dual display support, the VIA ARMOS-800 is optimized for both performance and power to meet the high-end demands of advanced industrial and in-vehicle applications. Boasting a ruggedized, fanless system design with a wide operating temperature range from -40°C up to 80°C, the VIA ARMOS-800 delivers a typical power consumption of a mere 3.14W TDP.
“The VIA ARMOS-800 is the first ARM-based system in our ruggedized AMOS systems series,” said Epan Wu, Head of the VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. “The high performance and ultra-low power consumption provides an exciting combination for a wide range of industrial embedded applications where robustness is critical.”
