Via debuts ultra-tiny Pico-ITX mainboard

Via Pico-ITX

Chipset maker Via Technologies on Friday introduced Pico-ITX, a new mainboard standard designed for systems where even the small shape of Nano-ITX boards would be too large to fit. The reference VT6047 board measures 4.2 by 2.8 inches -- only slightly larger than a playing card, the company is eager to note. Despite the diminutive size, the board makes room for VGA output and an Ethernet connection to get the system online. Cooling and power are kept to a minimum thanks to Via's lower-power C7 processors such as that used in the HP dx2020.

The platform should be available now from Via, though pricing and shipping for North America are currently unknown. The VT6047 may also form the backbone of complete systems from specialty PC manufacturers but hasn't been announced as part of any shipping systems.
