The VIA NanoBook UMD Reference Design incorporates many of the VIA building block technologies that characterize the compact yet highly integrated specification of our platform solutions.
VIA C7™-M ULV Processor
Based on the VIA CoolStream™ architecture, and manufactured using IBM’s 90nm SOI process, the VIA C7-M ULV processors are available at speeds from 1.0-1.5GHz with a maximum thermal design power (TDP) as low as 3.5 watts, and idle power as little as 0.1 watt ensuring unparalleled battery life. This is complemented by a low profile nanoBGA2 package measuring just 21mm x 21mm enabling designs with drastically reduced weight, size, and thickness.
VIA VX700 Mobile System Media Processor
The VIA VX700 breaks new ground by enabling platforms for the smallest, coolest and lightest systems. Designed specifically for today’s ultra thin’n’light notebooks and ultra mobile devices, the VIA VX700 integrates all the cutting-edge features of a modern chipset’s North and South bridges into a single chip package measuring just 35mm x 35mm, generating a silicon real estate saving of over 42%.
Rich I/O Connectivity and Additional Features
BlueTooth, Wifi, Ethernet capability and a 4 in-1 card reader means connecting and staying connected to the Internet and all your peripherals and devices is a breeze without the hassle of more cords and wires which further increases your ability to stay conveniently mobile. Providing additional flexibility, the VIA NanoBook also features a USB slot next to the screen that will enable the snap-in integration of a variety of World Time Clock/Calendar, GPS, VOIP, and broadband wireless modules. Full native x86 compatibility ensures that the VIA NanoBook runs a complete range of Microsoft® Windows® and popular Linux operating systems.
The uniqueness of the VIA UMD NanaBook Reference Design is its ability to combine the best features of the UMPC world including the touch screen, long battery life and small form factor while retaining all the functionality of a full notebook, all at consumer friendly price point.
