VIA EPIA PD-10000.jpg

VIA EPIA (VIA Embedded Platform Innovative Architecture) is a series of mini-ITX, em-ITX, nano-ITX, pico-ITX and pico-ITXe motherboards with integrated VIA processors. They are small in size and consume less power than computers of comparable capabilities.

There are several types of VIA EPIA motherboard: Nano-ITX versions, based on the VIA CoreFusion processor series, and Mini-ITX form factor featuring VIA CPUs and northbridges in separate packaging. They were originally built for industrial applications but came to have a wide range of applications in the consumer market, such as carputers, firewalls, HTPCs, and Small File servers.[citation needed].

Model codes[edit]

The VIA EPIA motherboards have the following designators:[1]

Code Definition
A Configured without TV-out
E Fanless configuration
G RoHS-compliant
L Configured with Gigabit LAN (where this is optional)
T With TPM
