VIA's "John" Technology
June 29, 2006
Wenchi Chen, President and CEO of VIA Technologies, gave a sneak peak of "John" during the VTF 2006 opening keynote address at Computex this year. John follows the biblically named Matthew, Mark and Luke in stuffing major x86 components into small spaces.
On the board here, John is actually the dark green blob top left, fitting a CPU and Northbridge onto a 35x35mm package. Most of the rest of the chips on the (unnamed) board support the interfaces and power regulation. Being a VIA creation, it has power management to save power and Padlock security features built in, and looks to be aimed at future hand held devices.
