Nano-ITX - Exclusive Pictures
From a cupboard under VIA's
Computex 2003 stand, September 25, 2003
Nano-ITX is VIA's
next generation small form factor embedded motherboard, measuring
just 120mm x 120mm. The secret of Nano-ITX is the Nano-BGA
(Ball Grid Array) package, which has allowed VIA to squeeze
a 1Ghz C3 CPU into just 15mm square. This is a pre-production
board, so specifications could change - but from our blurred
photographs this version looks to have a VT8237 South
Bridge, SODIMM RAM slot, SATA connector, 2 x IDE connectors,
S-Video, TV-Out, 3 Audio Jacks, VGA,
LAN, 2 x
USB and a Mini-PCI slot on the reverse. There may be a heatsink
on the real things, and we're not entirely sure how the board
is powered yet.

beyond life size...
Thanks for the pictures Stuart - your
prize is in the post.
