Pre-production EPIA TC Pictures
September 02, 2003
Pre-production shots of an EPIA TC have emerged. The TC appears to be either a variant or a renamed version of the EPIA "M2" prototype spotted in March at CeBIT. Maybe it will make another appearance at Computex?
The EPIA TC looks to be the furthest departure from standard EPIA or EPIA M architecture yet. Initial (unconfirmed) specifications include: C3/Eden processor support; CLE266 North Bridge and VT8235 South Bridge; 1 x 200-pin DDR266 SODIMM socket supporting 1GB memory (SODIMMs are smaller than 184-pin DDR SDRAM modules); Onboard CardBus type II and CF reader (RICOH 476 II Module design); VT1612A 2 channel AC’97 audio; and most interestingly of all: a DC-in socket leading to the 12V, 5A, 60W Max DC to DC converter... though we are unsure at this stage whether the TC could be used in vehicles without additional voltage protection circuitry.
Update: TC stands for "Thin Client" - and it looks like this board is destined for that particular market, with the M2 arriving separately. There may not even be a consumer version.
