VIA launch ARTiGO Pico-ITX Builder Kit
December 10, 2007
VIA have launched the ARTiGO A1000 Builder Kit - a bundle of a 1GHz low power consumption EPIA PX 10000 Pico-ITX motherboard, and their new ARTiGO Pico-ITX chassis.
The ARTiGO chassis measures just 150 x 110 x 40 mm (5.9 x 4.3 x 1.8in) and is supplied with an internal DC power board and 60W external power adapter. Builders can add their choice of DDR2 SODIMM (up to 1GB) and 2.5in IDE Hard Drive.
The chassis weighs just 520g (1.14 lbs) and power consumption of the whole system is 15W idle or 20W under full load.
"We have been overwhelmed by the positive response to the launch of the Pico-ITX boards from end-users and the embedded industry alike, so we are delighted to now make it easy for enthusiasts to build their own ultra small personal computer," said Daniel Wu, Assistant Vice President, VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies, Inc. "The VIA ARTiGO Builder Kit truly leverages the remarkable energy efficiency and power-performance-size ratio of the Pico-ITX form factor, and further cements VIA’s position as a leading innovator in the x86 space".
The PX board included in the ARTiGO Kit has a different heatsink and fan configuration to the standard PX 10000 board. Our own PX8 Pico-ITX chassis is completely fanless, but does cost slightly more.
The ARTiGO enclosure is treated to give a shiny finish.
