More EPIA PX Pictures
January 26, 2007
VIA have released more teaser pictures of their EPIA PX Pico-ITX board prototype, this time showing the board in all its glory without an enclosure.
VIA are no strangers to tiny motherboards. Many current 90 x 96mm PC/104+ and 146 x 101mm EBX 3.5in embedded boards already use VIA chipsets, and VIA already have their 120 x 120mm Nano-ITX boards. The EPIA PX measures 100 x 72mm. As with the EPIA NL Nano-ITX boards, all the connectors apart from Ethernet and VGA connect using pin headers due to physical limitations at this size.
The slightly unfinished looking heat spreader covering most of the top of the board in the final picture is interesting. This appears to be one half of a larger finned cooling arrangement - the top half mounting through 3 threaded hollow standoffs or screwing directly into the heat spreader. Or perhaps the standoffs are to allow stacking, PC/104 style. VIA rarely release photos of their boards with the full heatsink attached.
No further specifications are clearer at this stage. This is what we currently know.
