Board Form Factor Serves Next-Gen Embedded Systems
With a footprint 30% more compact than a Mini-ITX board yet with 200% more I/O capability, the 12 cm x 17 cm Em-ITX form factor from VIA Technologies includes dual I/O coastlines and an Em-IO expansion bus. The Em-IO expansion bus integrates the majority of popular bus signal technologies, including USB 2.0, GPIO, LPC, PCIe, IDE, IEEE 1394, S-ATA, PCI, DVI, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet and Card Bus signals. A variety of connectors are available on these two I/O coastlines, including COM (RS-232/422/485), RJ45, DVI, VGA, LVDS, USB 2.0 and DC power signals.
